Meet our fabulous

Ministry of Crab is a maiden innings for me & I hope this partnership with my long time batting partner Kumar & our new coach Dharshan will be a knockout. Hope you all will be bowled over :)

When applying a Japanese mind set to cuisine in Sri Lanka, one pays more attention to the supply chain. Nihonbashi made me discover fish markets and their amazing array of seafood, and this restaurant is a result of a decade and a half of discovery. Hoping you enjoy what the Ministry of Crab has on offer, we are merely messengers of great ingredients.

Welcome. Ministry of Crab is a celebration of Sri Lanka; our heritage and our wonderfully fresh and diverse ingredients. For me, this is the realisation of my dream to be part of a culinary experience that I hope will enthral your taste buds and leave you happy, and wanting more. Enjoy.
