Surprisingly very good

We walked past this place for several days and never went in as it looked a bit grotty. However we finally gave it a go and actually found it to be very good. We had four vege curries with rice. Aubergine Ochra potato and Dahl. All were very nice and tasty and made fresh, one of the better curries... read more

I had read many reviews here on TA and thought eating here would be a sure thing but instead left disssappointed and hungry. I have no problem eating in a simple local style family restaurant but the food should be great. Even if it's not at clean I can usually get by that IF the food is amazing... But it... More

It was nice to have our meals made from scratch. The wait was about half an hour but worth it. Portions are generous and the meals are tasty. We ate here several times. The surroundings are very shabby but this only adds to the local experience. No airs and graces in this cafe. The owner is very nice and helpful.

Went for our first meal in unawatuna here and had the best vegetable curry that we decided to go back the next day. Had a cooking class which was so much fun and interesting and made another great curry! Staff were super friendly and always looking to ensure you had a pleasant time. Can't understand bad reviews - honest! A... More

We chose this place based on tripadvisor rating, but unfortuenatly we found one hair in my wife's food, they told us that it might be her while she has long hairs and that is impossible, because her hairs are long and that hair was short, I would not talk about the quality and atmosphere.

Delicious food, reasonable price, and very nice family who likes to share their culture. We just tried it for dinner, then we came back for breakfast and ended up taking the cooking class!! Everything is good, from the rice and curry to the juices and milkshake.

FINALLY after 5 days in Unawatuna I ordered a meal and didn't feel ripped off. For 1000 I had mixed veg curry and rice + two Coronas. Normally a 1000 meal around here leaves me hungry but this was a substantial feed! Plus the bar upstairs is surprisingly trendy. I'd completely recommend you eat here.
