Tilapiya Colombo is the latest addition to the already popular Tilapiya franchise with a presence in Ekala & Bopitiya. Expansion to Colombo was a natural progression given the success so far and the overwhelming demand.



We have a very simple philosophy - to bring people closer together through the shared love for quality food and good company.
Hence, we’ve created a cozy space that welcomes and embraces all with open arms. To us, everyone who walks through the door is a friend & we will make sure you’re well taken care of - because that’s what friends do!
We specialize in soul food that is prepared to perfection using the best ingredients by expert chefs. Our portions are generously sized and offer value for money.
At Tilapiya Colombo we believe every day, every meal is worth celebrating. So, come by & let’s celebrate together.


Tilapiya Colombo is the brainchild of a group of friends, Chanuka Suraweera, Hashan Jayamaha, Chandu De Silva, and Madhushan Thiwantha, who set out to create the perfect space for fraternizing. As such, every aspect of the restaurant - from the diverse menu to the cozy, artistic interiors - has a personal touch and has been meticulously thought out and curated to reflect a warm, welcoming vibe. In other words, the founders' vision can be best described as 'dining and socializing, by friends for friends.
