Sri Lankan grub backed by the Gymkhana lot


Sri Lankan | W&R | ££

I remember when I first went here, queue was mad, so I respected myself and moved on (though they do seem to have an efficient queuing system in place, you can put your name on their beeper thing and they’ll notify you when your table is ready but you need to get down EARLY).  Months later, I’m in Soho, hungry, so I hit it up; it was 3pm during the middle of the week and there was STILL a queue. Speaking to Sri Lankans about their experience here, they said it was good but expensive for what it was but you have to consider they are paying Central London rent prices.  I didn’t have much when I went, just had the chicken lollipop chukka, roti, sides of brinjal moju and potato fry. Lots of brown, wood and foliage and the walls are decorated with framed colourful posters. Part of the JKS fam (Gymkhana, Trishna and Motu). There’s the original Soho branch and also one in Marylebone.
