Colombo Social is one of the most popular restaurants in Enmore with a long waitlist to get it. As a social enterprise kitchen, serving up soulful Sri Lankan food and vibrant cocktails, it provides employment opportunities, practical experience and training for people seeking asylum.

Their menu is designed to celebrate the sharing experience of Sri Lankan cuisine, blending home cooking techniques, recipes straight from Amma’s (Mum’s) cookbook and contemporary Aussie favourites. As Amma always says, “no-one should eat alone.”

Two things really stand out on the Colombo Social menu. Firstly the Sri Lankan curries are unique as they are not as sweet Indian and Thai curries, and have infused spices that create a warm blended flavour. Secondly, most of the meals on the menu are vegan friendly, flavoursome and well priced.

And even the cocktails have a Sri Lankan flavours with the specially designed Chilli Martini and The Smokey Cinnamon Arrack Old Fashioned.

Colombo is open Wednesday to Friday from 5:00pm to 11:00pm, and Saturday and Sunday 12:00pm to 11:00pm and is located at 159 Enmore Road, Enmore NSW.
