We ate here several times during our stay. It is a family run place and the chef who comes out personally to take your orders is extremely passionate about food. Everything we had here was very tasty and reasonably prices. Would recommend to anyone visiting unawatuna

the chef/owner is friendly and cooks with care and dedication. we tried "stuffed aubergine" and "falafels", both were delicious. we do not rate at top of the scale just because of the distance of the location from the beach and the very basic environment.

We had the Indian curry and the Masala dosa - both were delicious. After our meal the owner (Jina) sat down with us & chatted about his life and stories of Sri Lanka. Jina and his family are wonderful Sri Lankan people who provide outstanding and timely service and also an insight into Sri Lankan culture.

We were four and it took like 1 hour to be served. I took a burrito and it was really dry. BUT their juices were really good, we took the passion fruit one. Well, I was expecting a better thing from this restaurant.
