“great change of pace for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We had the muesli with fruit, it was loaded with fresh fruit and yogurt, and was a welcome change from the eggs and toast offered at hotels. The UK owner was very nice and welcoming, coming out to meet most if not all diners.

“Best food in the town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We recently just came back from Sri Lanka. Spent a few days in Unawatuna. We were looking for something other than rice and curry and stumbled upon this restaurant. The food is all home cooked (except for the ice cream). I would recommend anything but we had the mac and cheese, enchiladas and the chilli. The owners and staff are very friendly as well so it adds to the experience. Not overpriced at all. Everything on the menu is about $600 (main courses) and totally worth it!! Best food in the town!!

“Not good if you're in a hurry; but the food is worth the wait!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

My partner and I went here for lunch and had one of the best dosais we've had in Sri Lanka. Yes, the service is slow but this is Unawatuna! You come here to relax so order a drink and enjoy that whilst you're waiting for your food. The cooking was fresh and everything was homemade. Don't go here if you're in a rush, but do go if you want really good south Indian food!!

“Food was okay but overpriced for what it is.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

The staff were friendly and the restaurant was quiet. It took a while for the food to come which wasn't a problem as we had time but if you are starving maybe consider getting there early to place your order. I had the aubergine which was pretty nice. My partner had the vegetable curry and was rather disappointed to be given a small dish of daal and a potato curry (no vegetables in sight). We've eaten vegetable curries throughout our stay in Sri Lanka and have had a lot better for less money.
