Bawa Personally Approved Fernando Taking Over His Beloved Property And Converting It Into A Restaurant And Art Gallery And Respected Shanth's Design Sense In The Conversion And Renovation Of The Building To Complement His Own. Bawa's Only Input Was The Location Of The Main Pavilion Where Most Diners Are Seated. The Art Gallery Features Regularly Changing Exhibitions By Established And Emerging Local Artists, For Sale.

I came across this restaurant coincidentally while shopping at the main store. The black pork curry was delicious and unique. The atmosphere was worth staying for for a drink. Added bonus that the adjacent store selling a smaller selection of Paradise Road's items stayed open a bit past 7pm.

The place was gorgeous outdoor restaurant with a roof on over half of the tables. There were fans on the ceiling so the temperature felt comfortable. Food was delicious! Broad wine list compared to other restaurants in Sri Lanka - by glass. This place was more expensive than other restaurants we visited in Sri Lanka but I think it was definitely worth it. Credit cards are accepted.
