Pros

1) Personally i feel that this is the best fish and chips that i have had in sri lanka... Perfect chrispy batter.... Wonderful fresh flaky fish.... The perfect conbination.
2) very friendly staff.... And the owner is a nice gentleman too.

Cons

1) Apart from the fish and chips.... Most of the other stuff i tried here was bad.... If not horrible. Tried fried prawns.... Very salty and it didnt have any appeal. Stay away from their bitter lemon drink.... It is basically a lime juice... Made with the whole lime including the rind....... Ghastly.

2) the setup inside is like a waiting room for a clinic.

3) food takes some time to come out.

Not very satified with my experience at hippie chippie....
THOUGH I MIGHT GO THERE AGAIN FOR THE AWESOME FISH AND CHIPS :)

Thank sheran r

Hippie Chippie is a newly opened restaurant on Havelock road directly opposite Galleria.

The menu consists of mainly fried food items with a few rice and salad items thrown in. The fish and chips was quite tasty especially the white sauce, even the fish had a very natural taste. But at 690 you get much more for what you pay at the Manhattan Fish Market. The rice was very reasonable with quite a large helping. However it lacked flavour and salt and was too dry, also couldn't taste much seafood pieces in the rice. The drinks were slightly watery.

The restaurant is very small, with seating capacity for about 20-30 people. They also have delivery and take away options. Since the place is quite new the service is very slow. However there is a very charismatic owner/manager who is genuinely interested in your feedback.

All in all it is a good place and I believe they will improve with time. Found the pricing a bit steep for whats on offer but will definitely revisit to try out the other authentic dishes on offer.
