London restaurant Paradise is a slice of Sri Lankan serenity

A taste of tropical brutalism

After a successful stint as a pop-up, Sri Lankan restaurant Paradise has set up shop in Soho with a tropical brutalist oasis on Rupert Street.

Designer Dan Preston crafted the interiors for the London restaurant, which hone a tropical vibe via exposed timber trusses and raw concrete walls.


The Soho space is inspired by bistros found in Colombo and Galle, while industrial elements come via black metal detailing, powder-coated lampshades and leather seating with a soft patina. Greenery can be found in the private dining nook at the back of the eatery, which is decked out with hanging plants.

Chef Charith Priyadarshana is serving up modern Sri-Lankan dishes. Sharing plates include a yellow cod curry and highland pork cheek curry, as well as dishes influenced by Portuguese, Malay, South Indian and Dutch cuisines.
