Shanmugas: With a restaurant in Dehiwela and a smaller takeaway outlet at the Crescat shopping centre, Shanmugas is not only Colombo’s oldest vegetarian restaurant, it’s also one of the best. Their menu is huge with firm favourites such as the paper masala dosai – that shiny cone of deliciousness comes with a sambar and two chutneys. There’s all your classic Indian favourites such as idli, pani puri and chillie parota. Order a a North or South Indian Thali if you want to try a bit of everything. They also have rice and noodle dishes (such as the vegetable nasi goreng) for those that aren’t keen on something curry-based. Shanmugas has a wealth of extra services. Their “Pick and Go” service is very popular – call in your order and it will be ready for when you get there, perfect for those hungry vegetarians on the run.
