Great food

Jinas take a bit longer to prepare the food, but the tastes were fantastic. Not on the beach, but the ambiance was still very nice.

If it was' for all the other positive reviews, I wouldn't have been disappointed. But given our expectations, this place was barely above average. The food was good. Not bad. And not great either. We finished what we ordered, but weren't craving for more. The service was friendly, but extremely slow. Despite being the last people sitting at the place,... More

We loved our three curries, rice, coconut sambal and papadums here. All made fresh and served with pride! Pretty little setting too.

Excellent, tasty vegetarian food in a relaxed garden setting. A good range of vegetarian and vegan food with excellent cocktails and yummy desserts. Well priced. Would recommend.

At Jina's we had one of the best curries of our 3 week trip in Sri Lanka! There are a variety of vegetarian options on the menu to choose from and we went with some traditional curries. Everything was fresh and clean and super tasty. You can tell Jina takes a lot of pride in his food and care in... More

I did a cookery class with Jina who is a lovely guy. The quality of the food is great and all the ingredients are excellent. There are no shortcuts taken here. He showed us how to make 3 vegetarian curries, coconut sambal and aubergine salad, all of which we ate for lunch afterwards. What a feast. I highly recommend this... More

I have and continue to use this small little eatery on a regular basis, as all the food is freshly prepared and tasty. There is a good choice on the menu, but the only drawback is that you will often wait a 'brief' period of time for your food. But it is always worth the wait, portion sizes are perfect... More
