Great curry, good vibe

We would definitely recommend this place to eat a great curry with a view on the beach. The place looks good and the staff is kind.

Didn't meet low expectations. Ordered deboned fish - came with bones but cut up in a way that made it basically inedible. Curry was fine but bland to cater to non-spicy tourist preference. We are not Sri Lanka expecting top hygiene marks but this place scores particularly low on that front too. Music was good.

in September 2010 we ate there almost every night, variety of curries and local beer. I remember friendly stuff (the owners), interesting stories =) and great atmosphere. We also bought homemade spices and I know that the owner give cooking lessons.

Food was good and reasonably priced. We went there at night when they have out door seating by the beach. Service is quite slow but staff is very friendly and can give lot of useful tips to explore Sri Lanka

Good place, delicios fish, curry not very good by the way. Romantic place near the sea. Bad russian pop music. We suggest them to add rock music. And rave a little. Good beer with lion.

Strictly average food . We found this place overpriced for the quality of food they serve. I guess they thought we are locals and the service offered was pathetic to say the least. There are so many better places around and this surely can be skipped.

The only good thing about the place is the location. The service is poor and the last thing I expected was not so fresh prawns. I asked for the rice n curry and he said its not available and we ended up ordering grilled prawns and devilled prawns which was strictly ok with not so fresh prawns. Later we saw... More

We have now visited One Love on separate occasions during our travels to Sri Lanka and both times the food and service was excellent. The curries are out of this world and such good value for money.
