Gangarama area, in the vicinity of the Altair Luxury Apartment complex is listed as a Top Colombo neighborhood by Sri Lanka’s top food review site Yamu.
The area around Gangaramaya Temple, however, is a bit more free-wheeling. The big Altair apartment complex is going to change a lot, but right now it’s already pretty happening, especially around the Park Street Mews.
That area – with the news and happening Cafe Francais and the Harpo joints Park Street Mews Restaurant and Curve – is probably the nicest private leisure stretch in the city. It’s also connected to a lot of interesting stuff in the neighborhood.
