Why Ministry of Crab is special ?
The Dutch Hospital is Sri Lanka's best new development and Ministry Of Crab is its centerpiece. You can dine on the verandah or inside the large communal style dining room (it has big tables where you seat near other guests). It's a simple and beautiful space and completes the whole experience.
The staff here is well trained, attentive, and modern - they take orders on iPod touches. It's a highly professional outfit and we've never had any complaints.
Some must-try dishes:
Leek fried rice: $5
Oysters in the half shell: $10
Baked crab: $11
Avocado crab salad: $6
Kankun garlic and egg: $4
OMG prawn (300g): $11
How to get to Ministry of Crab?
Take the Galle Road north until it basically ends at the Galadari roundabout, continue straight past the Kingsbury and turn right towards the World Trade Center. It's inside the Dutch Hospital, to your left.

Tips for you
Decided to splurge on out first night in Sri Lanka and had been recommended by friends and were not disappointed - we had the butter crab and garlic crab and both were fantastic - eating them was z real ritual - and highly rewarding ! Good advice from staff - great service And highly recommended We loved watching the chefs in the open kitchen
Every detail is handled by perfection..... I'm not a real fan of crab but the way it is presented and the taste is great... Anyway that explains why it is always full....
