Really rude servers - didn't attempt to communicate in any way. Mango smoothie was undrinkable. Enchiladas horrible. Falafel ok. Nearly everything we asked for they didn't have.

Being vegetarians, there were very limited options available to us for dining in Unawatuna. Jina's filled the gap for us. Though we dined for 3 nights, we must confess that we had only tomato soup, pizza and yogi tea every single time. They were all good, especially the yogi tea, which we found very refreshing. It's a pity that Jina... More

The main chef is traveling and there was a notice expressing regret about minu not having all dishes. We decided to stay back anyway. Ordered maxican and a Pita -Falafel combo. Falafel were quite good with generous salad. I have never understood why they give only half pita, in most places. The maxican burritos had more cheese. I think they... More

I had a traditional Sri Lankan meal and it was lovely. I had to ask how I should eat it but the owner was more than happy to explain the dish and it tasted incredible

The food was truly amazing in this place! The owner and his family are super friendly and make very tasty food. Especially the passion fruit juice and the cakes were amazing, as well as the falafel and the sri lankan breakfast!

On a recent trip to Sri Lanka my sister and I visited Jina's and were absolutely blown away by Jina and his amazing restaurant. Jina puts the most amazing love and passion into his food. His cooking is something else. Everything is made with the utmost care and love. I try to never return to the same place twice in... More

The best restaurant in Unawatuna for Indian and Vegetarian cuisines. Jina is an extremely knowledgeable person and a great chef. His menu ranges beyond Indian and Sri Lankan food to include Mexican, Middle Eastern, Italian, Irish and Continental. Don't miss to enjoy his playlist of instrumentals.
