Baker Street, a hamburger restaurant in the Colombo suburb of Nugegoda, will celebrate its first anniversary in December.

Four software engineer friends started the restaurant on December 21 last year. One of them said: “All four of us came to Colombo to work, but we always struggled to find a good place to eat. So we thought why can’t we make food ourselves.” They hired well-experienced chefs in five-star hotels and realized their dream of offering burgers, which had been their favorite food as software engineers.

Baker Street currently offers nine types of burgers, with Crispy Chicken Burger (Rs.650), Great Seafood Burger (Rs.780), and Grilled Chicken Burger (Rs.780) being the most popular. Submarine sandwiches, such as Mixed Seafood and Deluxe Beef, and fried rice are also available, priced between 400 rupees and 790 rupees.

It sources its food ingredients through 5-star hotel suppliers, and in April this year, it was awarded “Top Eats” on Uber Eats. In September, it added combo platters containing cheese toasties and fried chicken to its menu for watching sports games at home. Customers can choose Bangalore Royal Fiesta, Mumbai Combo Fiesta, or Baker Street Challenger. He added, “We faced many challenges along the way, especially the COVID-19 pandemic, which delayed lots of our plans, but we will be able to offer our customers a new dine-in experience with an amazing new menu later this year.”

Opening hours: 11:00 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. In addition to pickup, delivery orders are accepted through PickMe and Uber Eats.
