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. The cocktails are great and beers always cold. It was interesting to visit the second time and sit out on the part of... More

We smelt their curries from the beach and decided to give them a try. We were delighted with the red rice and tasty curries, plus the delicious fresh juices. Definitely better than lots we have tasted after 3 weeks touring Sri Lanka. Service was quick too.

This place had great curries on the beach for a reasonable price. We had six different curries and they were all tasty. Possibly the Dahl was the only disappointment. We didn't have to wait too long but others around seemed to be waiting a while. Definitely worth a visit.

Those who claim that One Love has the best curry in town might be right since there aren't many places in Unawatuna who even try but that does not mean the curry is good. They serve a decent and varied plate of mixed currys for the normal tourist price but the stuff is usually overcooked and without character. The only... More

The tasty cocktails were a bit pricier than we were used to on Mirissa but they weren't really expensive and they were a good alcoholic strength. But the best thing on the menu is the rice and curry meal. It was just delicious! It was so tasty, we had to call out the chef and compliment him. A 25yr old... More

since the beach in front of one love is so big now, there are tables outside. I was sitting in the sand close to the sea and enjoyed the starts above me and the nice wind from the sea. And of course I enjoyed 3 vegetarian curries! Delicious there!

For beach curry, sort of tapas style, get the curry and rice and make your selections. It was great, if a little slow to arrive. For cheerful, if not absolutely cheap, sand-top dining with a cold Lion Lager, you could do worse than here.

We waited one hour for a seafood plate. People which came after us have become the meal before us. The waiter did not ask for any drinks during the waiting time and we put two times our hands up but no reaction. The seaplate was dissapointing. The prices are too high for the food and service. Never again!
