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

The food at this lovely place is delicious and the service very welcoming. We wanted to taste the entire menu but the favourites were Pittu and Indian rice and curries. You must try the potato and coriander bread! We cannot wait to go back to Unawatuna.

We visited this restaurant on our second night in Unawatuna and ended up going every night after. My wife and I enjoyed a real variety of curries, breads and accompaniments. It is hard to pick a favourite dish as the changing menu meant that every night was a different experience. The cakes in the afternoon were also gorgeous. Jina and... More

Oh so good! The chef takes big pride in preparing all his dishes fresh on the day without using any pre-cooked ingredients. We ended up going there every day for breakfast (sometimes lunch) and dinner. And every time the food was excellent! You can seat in a relaxing garden and enjoy the lovely food prepared by Jina. The only problem... More

Our Dinner was delicious! But in the offseason there are not all meals available, but if you ask they will tell you what is possible. The prices for the food are realy fair!

I cannot recommend this place more highly. It is a shame that the area in which you sit to eat isn't a bit nicer but I think that they are renovating the rooms and intend to do the restaurant next. My personal favourites here are the falafel, the houmous, the home made peanut butter, the carrot and ginger juice and... More

One of the best places I ate in Sri Lanka - Jina as an incredible man with the most beautiful daughter - One of those people you wish you stayed in touch with for ever! Such a beautiful traditional set up with some amazing dishes - A MUST visit in SL!
