THE STREET ART OF KOTTU
Colombo Street origins are traced back to when we decided to bring a little bit of Sri Lanka to the Midlands by serving up the most exciting, flavourful, and vibrant Sri Lankan Street food called Kottu at some of the best street food markets and events. Our sought-after signature kottu dishes pay homage to the delicious traditional flavours of tropical island Sri Lanka with a twist of inspiration from across Asia.
Not only does our signature kottu gives our customers rich and flavourful bites of comfort food that stimulate tastebuds, but we have been able to give the ultimate Sri Lankan street food experience with a warm welcome and a show of how we create our nation's beloved street food with the hustle and bustle of the metal-on-metal beats creating tunes of Baila music.
Our tales of becoming the 2020 British Street Food Awards Finalists and the loyal customers across the Midlands have inspired us to take the next step in our food-venture in Robinhood Country. We have experienced an overwhelmingly positive reception from our devoted customers since our establishment in Nottingham. We are extremely grateful for the recognition we have received through numerous accolades in both the Midlands and the wider UK. It brings us great joy to have been named the Sri Lankan Restaurant of The Year at the esteemed National Asian Food Awards, as well as being selected as a finalist for the title of South Asian Restaurant of the Year at the Midland Food and Drink Awards.
