We loved Jina's! Fantastic veggie food and great hospitality. Talk to Jina if you are interested in meditation, he's a good guy!

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!

I read about this restaurant before going to Sri Lanka and so headed straight there when we arrived in Unawatuna. Im glad we did, we ended up going back to eat there every day the food was so good. The Falafels were my favourite but there was also excellent Sri lankan curry and lots of other homemade food and cakes... More

The restaurant is nice, the staff are friendly and the prices are fair. The real reason to go here is the excellent menu all lovingly prepared by the chef. I wish I could have stayed in town longer to enjoy more of his food. We ate there three times and were never disappointed once.

...which makes me believe people are scared by the name 'vegetarian and vegan' restaurant. Even so, we sat down due to the good reviews on TA. Not a vegetarian myself, i don't mind not eating meat for a night. We ordered guacamole, falafel and chocolate cake as a desert. We also had a pineapple and avocado/banana/coconut -juice. And let me... More

I picked this restaurant because we had 3 vegetarians in our party and based on the reviews this was going to be one of our best experiences in srilanka. It turned out to be our worst experience. The restaurant furniture consists of the cheapest plastic garden furniture. We were ready to order and some us wanted to order to Indian... More

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!
