Absolutely wonderful! The whole time I've been in Sri Lanka, this was by far the best restaurant we've eaten in and had the best food! My sister and I also took a cooking lesson with the chef, and it was really great!

At first we weren't sure because it does not look very charming when you see the place, but after lunch we came back for dinner. The falafel is good, but I thought the nachos were even better!

order a beer and get it served in a "tea-pot" The restaurant does not have a licence! Nice and tasty diners wit a lot of choices on the menu.

Weird little place and would not like to look in the kitchen but I did have an incredible falafel here and would thoroughly recommend it. Can't vouch for anything else on the menu.

We all enjoyed a super meal here and can only agree with all the positive comments already posted. Caring & friendly staff. Nice laid back eating area. Excellent veggie/vegan food. We met the chef making the falafel earlier in the day when we passed to restaurant...it sealed the deal! It would have been nice to wash it down with a... More

We went back twice as the food and drinks were so delicious. Service is SO friendly and caring. We're not usually fans of vegetarian restaurants, but this one converted us!

We were in Unawatuna for a few days but I think there was only one day where we didn't go this restaurant. It's all home made brilliance - well, at least it tasted like it - from the guacamole and falafel, to the out-of-this-world huevos rancheros, salads and omelettes. And that's before you get to the curries and smoothies. And... More

Loved this place. In fact, we ate here twice in our 2 days in Unawatuna. The food was freshly cooked. and it showed in the taste. Try the salads, and the Indian meals. They also have a little souvenir shop as part of the restaurant, and let you play some of their table games while waiting for the food. The... More

Jina's is our favourite place in the country. Might sound like an exaggeration, but believe me, as an expat living here, it's a haven! Jina makes his food with love and it shows. After a meal, we walk out feeling like we're walking on air - full to the brim with goodness! My favourite thing on the menu is the... More

We loved the food and service at this lovely vegetarian restaurant. They have a small menu and dont always have everything on there. The curry is delicious: particularly loved the mung been Dal. Superb vegetable juices and the service is Sri lanka at its best. Smiles and joy, friendliness and fun. Thanks, Jinas
