Lovers of South Asian cuisine are in for a treat, with a new Sri Lankan restaurant getting the green light.
Proposed for Memory Mall at 429 High Street, Penrith, the restaurant will be known as Black Pepper Sri Lankan Restaurant and will offer dine in and take away options, according to documents attached to the successful Development Application (DA).
While there are a number of Indian options currently available across the city, some of which offer Sri Lankan dishes, it is believed this is the first dedicated Sri Lankan restaurant to enter Penrith’s burgeoning food scene.
Penrith Council rubber-stamped the fit out of the existing food and drink premises earlier this month, however it is unknown when the restaurant will open.
