This hotel definitely is a hidden gem away from the bustle of Hikkaduwa town.I've visited Hikkaduwa many times and decided to visit the Asian Jewel,I now wished that I had discovered it earlier! Lovely setting over looking the lake,peaceful an serene.We enjoyed a lovely sunset while having one of the coldest beers in Sri Lanka(they serve them very chilled in... More

Miles out of the way but they arrange a tuk tuk for you and it is worth the journey, it's probably the best curry I have ever had! We didn't manage to try the Sri Lankan curry and rice (which needs to be ordered 2hrs in advance), but the house special curry was absolutely amazing: fragrant and tasty, really well... More

This place is pretty hard to find, we only became aware of it because we googled best places to eat in Hikkaduwa, and this restaurant was rated number 1. You have to get a tuk tuk to take you there, but it's worth it because the food is amazing. We were only in Sri Lanka for 8 nights, but we... More

Warmly met by Tanya, the owner. Had the most delicious meal we'd had in ages (and not just in Sri Lanka!). Tanya sent a Tuk Tuk and it took about 10 minutes out of Hikkaduwa so nice to see a bit more of the place. Lovely setting, scrummy food (beef madras was gorgeous!) what more could you ask for?

We were picked up by tuk tuk arranged by Asian Jewel- otherwise may never have found it! So glad we did- the most amazing meal in the most beautiful setting, served by the most helpful and interesting staff. A most flavoursome variety of curries- fabulous dhal with coriander, all just stunning! Very reasonable price too- definitely worth the trip!

The Sri Lankan curry is well worth waiting for, I have been travelling in Sri Lanka for nearly 3 months and it is the best one I've had yet! It is a little out of the way but this adds to it's charm. You won't get a sunset here but the views of the lagoon are lovely and it's really... More

We emailed them and they arranged a tuktuk to pick us up from our hotel (250 rupees each way). The most polished and high class tuk tuk we travelled in all holiday. The staff were friendly and attentive. The building, decor, was lovely , spotlessly clean with real attention to detail. We had a three course meal with drinks and... More

Very nice atmosphere and very good food, a bit far from Hikkaduwa though. Prices significantly higher than in other places, but not bad if you want to treat yourself to a nice meal. Extremely friendly staff. We paid around 700 RS for the tuktuk from Hikkaduwa (return).

Aside from a few homecooked meals by local families this small hotel in the outskirts of Hikkaduwa offered us perhaps the best curry we had in a restaurant in Sri Lanka. Etremely diversely flavoured with just the right amount of hotness and beautifully arranged. A bit hard to find the place but well worth the trip!
