Grand Gourmet Nirj’s restaurant opens

“Grand Gourmet at Nirj’s”, Sri Lanka’s first French fine dining restaurant, was opened by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and Prof Maithree Wickremesinghe.

“Whilst wishing Grande Gourmet and my childhood friend Niranjan every success, I hope this is a harbinger to Sri Lanka being a fine food destination”, said the Prime Minister.

“As the only dining club associated with the world’s leading chefs, we have the unique opportunity to mix with and observe the best of the best,” said Niranjan Deva Aditiya who is also a Member of the European Parliament.

“While our intention with Grand Gourmet at Nirj’s is simple, it is also boundless, in the sense that we want to achieve Michelin Star status and put Sri Lanka on the world gourmet map. The finest ingredients are only part of the step – we want to provide an internationally recognised and immersive fine dining experience”, he said.

“Our firm desire is that Grand Gourmet at Nirj’s is open to all who have the means to dine there and experience the very best, not just those from the top echelons of society or politics. We are relentlessly focused on truly welcoming and including the customer, and ensuring that they are given the very best holistic dining experience”.
