This is a real hidden gem in Mirissa. Beautiful gardens and a family-run business. The food is brilliant.
We did a Sri Lankan cooking course with Madu, which was a fantastic experience. Everything very clearly explained and made the recipes seem simple. Just make sure you take a pen and paper to write them all down.
We stayed in the new building, which was private and clean. However the roof leaked and the place was damp - we had mold on our bags after 10 days there.
That said, we'd definitely go back again. The frogs and owls in the garden kept our six-year old happy for hours.
There's a five minute walk to the sea along a track. Take a torch if you are coming back after dark, or take the longer - ten minute - road route back, or a Tuk Tuk.
