We were craving burgers one night and according to TripAdvisor this is the place to go - it was right! The burgers are massive and served with a number of sauces to choose from. We enjoyed our dinner here so much that we returned the next day for lunch where we ordered the fish and the prawn tacos. Once again... More

This little place was my go-to for breakfast. Loved the couple running it. They also have really nice fish tacos and other western food (made very well) if you're craving something other than Sri Lankan food while on your beach holiday. The Internet was the best I found in unawatuna Oh! And great coffee! 💙🙏🏽

Have you ever had a hangover? If yes, then you have to go there sir/madame and have that soaked in fat signature burger. If the Koko's grill would be in healthy eating people college then it would be 100% college dropout.

I was reminded of the old Jimmy Buffett song about living on island time. We were a bit early for lunch, but even when we let it be known we only had a hour (and were assured we'd be finished by 1 p.m.) it was over ten minutes before we got a menu, and then only after asking the passing... More

This place doesn't look like much in the outside but we had a great lunch here. My only criticism would be that the burger price isn't inclusive with chips and I found that strange as it's quite a high price.

We went here for dinner because of great reviews and they didn't lie. We had fish&chips, burger and cheese chips. Food was great and portions huge. Also nice was when chef/owner came to ask if everything is OK and than ,,danced" away...

Gary's place is great food and very reasonable priced. He is next door to Raj's so between them you are well looked after.

We had a chicken kebab and it was fantastic. Gary the owner just bought a lava grill which gives a really clean and unique taste to grilled options on the menu. Paul, the head waiter delivered the best service we had in Sri Lanka.

Had a great lunch here today with my husband and daughter! Friendly efficient staff, great shady spot on the beach and delicious fresh food! As much as we love Sri Lankan food it was such a treat to enjoy well cooked scrummy tiger prawns and chips! The sort of chips you get on Brighton pier! With the best fresh chilli... More
