We came here for breakfast and right again for dinner. The place is owned by a friendly family who answer all of your questions with a warm smile. You'll have to wait quite a time foe your food, but this only speaks for its authenticy. The food is delicious and well-spiced. The portions are big and thus worth their price... More

It is not easy to see this restaurant. Atmosphere is like being hosted in a Sri Lanka home. Food is tasty. They have all range from vegetarian to chicken and fish. Price is not low for being in Sri Lanka (average price is 500/800 rupees per plate). Cleaning situation is average, don't expect anything shining. The main bad side of... More

Happy Spice is a small family restaurant. There are only four tables. The interier look like as garage. But the meal when I wait over one hour was delikate.

We dined here tonight after reading other reviews. The nature of the restaurant is evident immediately, with breeze block walls and the most very basic of lighting and furnishings. It is instantly appealing, there is something special about this place which attracts so many and it has to be the food and hospitality. A simple menu is presented and we... More

Happy Spice is set up in a small, concrete house which was destroyed in the 2004 Tsunami. It is run by a lovely family and the food was absolutely delicious. Amazing traditional Sri Lankan curries (the prawn curry was the best). I would recommend eating here for lunch rather than dinner, as it isn't on the beach and doesn't have... More

We ate here 4 times, and the food was excellent! I have Stayed in Sri Lanka for 2month and this place was the most authentic Sri lankan food i have tasted. It's local, cheap and the family are really kind. I can highly recommend this place if you are staying in Unawatuna!!
