Once they left, I was alone on the patio lit by strewn white lights and surrounded by tall palms. The music did not match the atmosphere by any means. The ever-present ‘80s hits would be the only thing I would change.
The menu listed many choices for vegetable, meat, or fish curry for about $5. The waiter was a bit rushed, finishing up the dinner rush inside, but he was very polite and attentive. I chose a veggie curry, full of carrots, onions, zucchini, carrots, and potatoes atop saffron Sri Lankan rice served, with a small salad topped with Italian dressing. I took my time enjoying the mix of spicy flavors.
When I was leaving, the dining room was empty, so I took a few pictures while explaining to the owners what the photos were for. They are a friendly couple who seemed thrilled I was going to write about them on the Internet. The husband promptly went to get a business card, while his wife inquired about my meal. I assured them that everything was delicious and I would recommend Serendib's highly.

I''ve never had Sri Lankan food before, so I can''t say if it was authentic. It reminded me of a combination between Indian and Creole food. In particular, there was a dish that reminded me of jambalaya, savory rice packed with meat and onions. I also had a chicken curry. We were stuffed!
January brings delightfully cool weather to Belize, and we enjoyed sitting outside in Serendib''s courtyard. Christmas lights and plastic tables with umbrellas kept a festive outdoor scene.
Our waiter was incredibly friendly. He seemed very happy that we wanted to try Sri Lankan cuisine. He asked us to come back the next night, but of course we wanted to try some of the other restaurants in town. Serendib is on my list of restaurants to revisit next time I''m in Belize.
Serendib also seemed popular with locals. We were seated next to large Belizean family. The restaurant was completely full inside, and there were few empty tables in the garden.
