We thought of taking advantage of the pleasant weather while it still lasts and headed straight to Loumi last Thursday. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time enjoying the festive spirits, free flowing bubblies, great food and relaxed weekend vibe.

About Loumi

An Arabic influenced all day dining concept serving breakfast, lunch & dinner – Loumi has everything on offer to elevate the overall dining experience of guests. Set in Millennium Airport Hotel’s tranquil alfresco surroundings overlooking the pool, Loumi currently offers a fascinating ‘themed’ dinner BBQ Buffet with great music entertainment, live cooking stations and an endless array of international buffet treats.   Al Fresco stations, in-house baked fresh bread, butcher-shop style meat selections and private dining rooms are some of many highlights that make it the perfect option for both business and leisure dining.

The BBQ theme night

The BBQ theme night buffet served as a perfect start to our weekend. The barbecue offered a wide selection of prime-cut meats, seafood and poultry items marinated to perfection. It also featured abundant home made fresh bread, garden greens, compound salads, fresh fruits and an impressive line-up of desserts.

The food

We started off by treating ourselves to a selection of fresh appetizers including the scrumptious quail egg canapes. We then progressed on to fresh salads. We took time to enjoy our starters and bubblies and when we were hungry enough to eat a camel, we went for the key highlight of the evening – The Barbecue.

We were treated to a massive line-up of meat, poultry and seafood including our regular favorites like lamb shanks, beef ribs, chicken charcoal grill, grilled prawns, and a whole lot more exquisite meat selections by the chefs. The best part of BBQ theme night was the live cooking station. We indulged to our hearts content without feeling shy! The quality of meat was fresh and the joy of selecting our preferred cuts and seeing it grilled to perfection on order – was one awesome experience.

As we passed the salad counter, we witnessed a pretty mean dessert line up along the way. We decided to save some space for a post meal sweet indulgence. We absolutely adored the selection of strawberry quiche, mango and chocolate cake, puddings, brownies and other delicious pastries.


The ambiance is uber slick with luxurious sofas, chairs and elegant tableware. The restaurant had very comfortable seating and great indoor and outdoor dining areas and even a private dining suite. It can accomodate 100 guests indoor and 60 outdoor. The restaurant is super clean with shiny floors, stately décor and gorgeous lighting which serves as a perfect mood setter for a romantic, elegant and intimate meal.

The service

The staff were incredibly good, as always and we even had the Chef Sudesh Vithanage walk onto our table to find out if we were enjoying our dinner.  This was the highlights of our dining experience at Loumi and we can’t wait to go there and enjoy their warm hospitality again.


If you are a fan of barbeque, you will fall helplessly in love with the Barbeque Theme night buffet at Loumi happening on Thursday & Friday from 19:00 – 23:30. The vast selection of high-quality meats are sure to enthral even the most voracious of meat lovers. Choose from your favourite meats or seafood from the al fresco station and have it barbecued to order! Chicken, beef and lamb marinated with condiments can be found near the live cooking stations out. Simply pick, grill and enjoy!
