We were 3 + 1 kid. Restaurant is run by a family and it’s newly opened - in December 2017. Very clean and cosy, location is convenient , staff is very responsive, food is just great (we had lobster, omelet and deviled prawns)! All the signs of new place - we only wish to keep up with the quality standards they’ve started with. And the chief - lady was so charming!... coming there again soon!

Me and my husband dropped in looking for crab or lobster. We were served an amazing dish of lobster curry made Sri Lankan style. Finger licking good and no spice at all, just the way we like it. You have to look closely to find the first floor restaurant on top of maya shop and opposite the curry bowl.

Been to Gem Light twice with my friend during our short holiday break to Lanka.
Hikkaduwa as a town is very quite not as happening as Unawatuna. Found this place while strolling and searching for food. This restaurant is now run by Lalith and he confirmed that his place doesn't serve Pork or Beef and showed us his deep freezer to confirm as we were searching for restaurant which doesn't serve pork. As there are no halal restaurants in Hikkaduwa we considered his place because of No Pork No Beef policy. The food was yum and we spent around 2500 LKR for Devilled Prawns, Calamari fried rice, Rice and fish curry with 2 Ginger beers. And 2000 LKR for 750 gms of Crab with Rice and Curry. Which is indeed pocket friendly. This is a must visit place in Hikkaduwa
