The Steuart by Citrus is the perfect oasis for travelers visiting Colombo, offering a charming environment and a host of convenient services and amenities designed to make your stay delightful. Inspired by the Scottish roots of George Steuarts, Sri Lanka's oldest mercantile establishment, The Steuart's interiors are a blend of old world Euro-Asian charm within the heritage building that once served as the headquarters of the conglomerate; the rooms are spacious and well appointed and reflect the grandeur of colonial Sri Lanka. Adding to The Steuarts' popularity is its bustling restaurant the &Co Pub and Kitchen , one of the most popular pubs in the City, renowned for its scrumptious menu and well-stocked bar which offers in-house guests extended happy hours from 11am to 11pm. Nestled in the heart of Colombo's financial district, The Steuart is minutes away from some of Colombo's most popular landmarks, sights, monuments and restaurants; the One Galle Face mall, Port City, and the Fort railway station will only take about five minutes on foot.

Ordered the Rice Mutton dish,which was splendid. Good portion of each item including the meat.fusion preperation as stated in their menu which was delicious. The delivery (Dilshan)was done in a very professional manner and on top of that extremely courteous and friendly including the order taker.The best part of this whole process is the ability order even one item as there's no minimum order like most other places.Hope you maintain the standards !

During languid noon time our family was hungry for a Sri Lankan specialty lunch and we decided to try the exclusive Sri Lankan fusion cuisine lunch packets made by the Sri Lanka Curry Club by Citrus and perused their menu via the internet and were not disappointed by the wide selection. The culinary line - up included eight different kinds of Sri Lankan rice and we selected the Chicken and Fish from the e - brochure and placed the order via telephone and a courteous female voice took the call and noted our order and rerepeated it to ensure accuracy and even predicted the tentative time of delivery giving information of the delivery rider. By about 11.30 am we received a call from the delivery .guy that the meal was on the way and exactly by 12.30 pm the lunch was delivered home. We are very satisfied with this meal. It came hygienically packed with a sticker for safety in a lunch sealed box with the packets further enclosed in a bag. The meal was indeed delicious, The aromatic Fish Rice was mustard and lemon grass infused fish curry with capsicum and tomato and served with egg plant tahini savory rice and green tomato chutney, The Chicken lunch comprised boneless chicken cubes in red curry with eggplant served with yellow peanut rice and puhul chutney, The serving size was adequate for an adult and the flavor and taste unbeatable an ligers on after partaking of the food. The bonanza of ordering the Ceylon Curry Club includes free delivery of a radius of 15 KM within Colombo and a choice of wonderful deserts too. Furthermore, we have had the opportunity of staying at the Steuart too and find this a luxurious hotel with great service and clean rooms characterized by friendly service.

This hotel is outstanding. I spent almost fifteen nights at The Steuart by Citrus on two different occasions from April to May 2021. I don’t regret it. I highly recommend this hotel. I loved the spacious premium room overlooking the town. In the surrounding, you can find coffee shops, restaurants, banks, mall, etc. There’s always something to do in the surrounding. It never gets boring. All the main tourist attractions are located close to this hotel. The airport is around 30 to 45 minutes away. The hotel staffs are very friendly and supportive. They even helped me with my pre-departure PCR test and transport booking. I think the menu must be improved to incorporate more vegetarian options. I appreciate the work of Mr. Anushan and Mr. Srimal, and the reception staff.
