The food was the best we had in Unawatuna. And the desert was wonderful, try the carrot cake or the fruit cake! :-)

I did the morning cooking class with Jina and had a great time learning ways to cook delicious Sri Lankan vegetarian curries. Jina had a relaxed way of running the class and tailored the dishes to the ones I was most interested in, giving many great tips along the way. I would thoroughly recommend this class to anyone wanting to... More

Had a rice and curry for under 800. Not the cheapest but Unawatuna is generally very touristy. Service was good and efficient.

Once we had our first meal at Jina's it was assured that we would eat every other meal with Jina during our stay in Unawatuna. I can't say enough about the wonderful vegetarian fare here. The service and value were also great. A must.

We had diner at Jina's last night and had trouble deciding what to eat, because everything on the menu sounds amazing. The chef believes food should be cooked with a clear mind and positive energy and you can taste that in the food and atmosphere. This morning we took the cooking class with him. He explained everything really well and... More

This place is wonderful. The owner/chef came out each time to chat with us he was so lovely and the food was too. We ate here 3 times, each time having something different and enjoyed them all. For coffee lovers, the Coffee is by far the best in Sri Lanka, the blend is roasted and ground on site and the... More

With all the lovely rice and curries, it isn`t a troulb to be a vegetarian in Sri Lanka. However sometimes it is nice to have a lot of choices as a veggie too. Here are both Indonesian, Indian,Mexican and vegetarian food, and Jina knows how to cook it. Perhaps not the very most exciting dishes, but very nice for a... More

Lovely restaurant with friendly staff, nice to come across as a vegetarian and fan of organic food. The dishes are of different quality, some (e.g the Indian curry) seem to be better and more authentic to me than others (e.g the guacamole, the hummus) and the prices seem to be a bit high for certain offers. They lead a book... More

We liked the food and especially the bread, seems like they have been taught from a German :) Cozy place but a but a bit pricy for the small dishes/atmosphere

The best vegetarian food I had in SriLanka, reasonable price given the tourist area Make sure you go between 12.30-3 as best time for fresh food
