I read about tis place on TripAdvisor n it lived by to my expectations n beyond. Met d owner who was very warm in his hospitality. Took time n efforts in chatting n giving us knowledge abt avocados. The ABC juice is brilliant. Worth a visit...will definitely go there again.

Thankyou for the lovely meals: the falafel was really good! The sri lankan muesli with fresh fruits was a experience, and a great breakfast option if you're not really into a sweet taste. The owner was peacefull and helpfull. Meals take a while but it's worth it.

This was a really good lunch stop for us in Galle - even though most of us were not vegetarians. The owner is a wonderful gentleman who is visible and attentive, always on hand to make sure that all is well. Nothing is too much trouble, and the food is tasty and the portions really generous. I would highly recommend... More

It's a shame there aren't more places like this in England! Food was cooked from scratch and was delicious! The family are very kind and welcoming, very friendly too! Would definitely recommend a visit if you're staying nearby!

We loved this restaurant and visited it several times during our stay in Unawatuna. Particular mention must go to the exceptional homemade bread as well as the fabulous falafel and pitas. Yum! Will definitely return if I find myself in Unawatuna again.

We ordered the spring rolls based on a review and they did not disappoint. We also had the special of the day, delicious! Service was good too, not too slow like some reviews said.

Jina's is a cute vegan-vegetarian friendly cafe off the main road. The chef is really skilled at making excellent curries at a very fare price. I had the Indian Thali and it was amazing. I also had a coconut-avocado-banana shake which was probably the best I've had. So flavoursome. The decorations and paintings are also very nice to look at.... More

Four of us went for lunch and we were all very happy with how delicious the food was. Unfortunately from the outside it didn't look open ... There was no music ... No flowers on the table just quite dull... Having said that the spring rolls were so good we debated going back anyway or ordering them to go ...... More

We dined here tonight (june 15th 2016) and the food is just great!! We had the puri meal which was really tasty! The food is freshly prepared, healthy and vegetarian/vegan. A very good option to eat meatless. Ask whats available, they don't have the whole selection provided. We can fully recommend this place!

We came here during the Vesak holidays and were hunting for places to eat. This was the only one open and we are ever grateful as were really hungry. The ambience is good , overlooks a quiet garden and you can exchange your old books here - quite a decent collection ! Food was Ok - we ordered a sandwich... More
