Very good

Let me tell you Happy spice is delicious and the food is reasonably priced, the spice is perfect, not to hot but nicely balanced. The service was a little slow though

We were the first to arrive and waited almost and hour for our food. We were served one round of drinks, and then never asked again. Plates and empty glasses piled up on the table until we were ready to leave. However, when the food came, we forgot it all. Great flavors, made with love. Recommend the fried calamari for... More

Really good curry and rice for very reasonable price. The cooking courses are brilliant, although the teachers English is limited, it adds to the charm of working out what is going on! Huge amount of food is made and then eaten by all who participated! Recipes can be emailed after the class, although we are still waiting for ours.

We stopped by Happy Spice twice when we were in Unawatuna, and both times everything was lovely. Dinner involved several curries and lots of cold beer, served on the upstairs patio overlooking the street. A few days later I checked in for breakfast and again everything was great, with good service to match. I would recommend Happy Spice as a... More

Sat upstairs by the bar, staff were friendly and helpful. A large group had just left and we had the upstairs to ourselves before the late evening crowd arrived. Very well looked after and the food was just perfect. We had Seafood Curry and Chicken Curry and Rice followed by Banana Fritters. With a couple of cocktails and beers the... More

After 10 days traveling in Sri Lanka, we can say that the curry is good, but not much better than the rest we've had so far. Certainly not worth waiting 1,5 hours for. Make sure you order in advance!

The food cooked in this family run restaurant was amazing. We all had the Sri Lankan rice & Curries- chicken & fish choices that were served with 4 vegetable curries plus we also ordered extra types of vegetable curries as a side because we wanted to taste the amazing selection that they offered. Mouth watering food at inexpensive prices unlike... More
