“Best food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Me and my boyfriend had both lunch and dinner at this lovely small familyrestaurant. We were sitting on their topdeck next to their washingline and son playing computergames, personal and very genuine setting :) Amazing food, best rice n curry we had in sri lanka. So good taste we had to buy their homemade curryspices so we can make it ourselves. Good chickenrotti also. Highly recommended!

“Compliments to the chef/team/famiky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

After touring through sri lanka for 2 weeks, we ended our trip in unawatuna and were expecting to find typical 'tourist food' everywhere. We read the recommandations on tripadvisor and thought we'd give happy spice a try. It was definitely one, if not the best eating experience we had in sri lanka. Authentic food, friendly service and surprising location. We're not used to writing reviews but happy spice's definitely worth going. Don't miss the red snapper cooked in a banana leaf, it tastes like heaven!

“Very tasty construction site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Small family run establishment serving great food in premises that appear to be still under construction. We had fish grilled in banana leaf with rice and salad to share between two. Everything was very fresh and delicious.

“Top Sri Lankan Curry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Went on our last night in Sri Lanka and this was the best food and fun during our stay! Genuine local family run restaurant serving a wide range of mum inspired tasty food in a very friendly atmosphere. Other reports suggested it was worth a visit and IT WAS! Will return next time we go to south coast.
