  • The best ODEL outlet in my opinion. Has a food court if you want to grab some fast food. Has sufficient parking space. They always decorate according to the season/ occasion which is pretty nice. The clothes sold here are pretty high-end and can cost a fair bit, but the quality is always great.
  • Beautiful small mall with some good brands. Once you are done shopping you can enjoy a great meal in the atrium. As a parent of toddler I always look for a place with baby changing room n this mall has a very hygienic, spacious and beautiful changing room.
  • This is an up market shop that had been around for a while which started as a very small business. It's good for clothes and souvaniers for tourists to take back home. It has good parking, good toilets and many eating options. ODEL of course have changed since the change of ownership and it's now a more commercial venture compared to the one of it's kind lifestyle store it used to be.
  • They have a new design which is nice to be honest. A lot of outlets for people to hang out, not only to shop around but to eat nd chill as well. There used to be dogs there which was nice because those dogs were so adorable.
  • I recommend visiting ODEL only for purchasing Sri Lankan souvenirs. The rest of the items are quite overpriced and can be found cheaper elsewhere. The store is usually quite crowded and the dining options are fairly limited. Definitely NOT a must visit spot for any tourist travelling to Sri Lanka.
