We had read a lot about this place on tripadvisor so decided to eat here one night. The place is always packed mostly with tourists and young backpackers. Food is a mix of traditional sri lankan and continental and asian fare. Food is tasty but the service is ridiculously slow and painful

Ate there last night. The area Unawatuna is very commercialised and some of the food offered is very badly 'westernised'. We had lovely local food, with many options and no issue with my wife and daughter only wanting light starters after a late heavy lunch. I had best chicken curry of trip served Sri Lankan hot but they checked before... More

The place is really cool! The food is amazing. Try the chicken with basil leaf. The room was upscale for a reasonable price. I highly recommend!

The small restaurant serves traditional food with good prices. The creamy chicken curry and the passions Mojito are awesome. One of the best curry's I ate during my trip. The team is very nice and helpful. They all speak English and one staff member German as well. This restaurant is definetly a place to visit.

Amazing place to stay and great food. The owner was fantastic and showed us around the town and nearby town of Galle. He made the trip very special! Good place for backpackers and right opposite the beach.

We visited the Pink Elephant after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and also as it was busy and that is also a good sign and it didn't disappoint, we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

We stopped in here for dinner one of our nights in Unawatuna.Food was absolutely beautiful and very cheap. The service was great and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal..The only downside is that it is not on the beach but it definately deserves alot more credit than some of the spots to eat on Unawatuna beach!

Food and drink at pink elephant is really good value and the food was really well made. We had the prawn curry and Sri Lankan chicken curry, which was delicious and much better than other meals we had on the beach front. The service was the quickest we had received in Sri Lanka and the manager is really friendly.
