Good food, we did have to wait for quite some time for a drinks menu and felt that the waiters should be taught to present the drink menu before the food menu. Food very good and the surroundings were lovely. The music was to the owners taste and although good music maybe something a little more subtle to suit the environment would have been nicer.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, im not sure why you didnt receive the drinks menu, but have addresed this with our waiters and they all have more than 10 years experiance, we are a small hotel firstly and all of our staying guest pre order there meals as we have a 10 page international menu so some times food can be being served and this can cause a small wait, as for the music we have an Ipod with 5000 songs on, we set it for easy listening at dinner times but our guest can also make selections from this, we are sorry you found the atmosphere not so good, but it is very difficult to try and please all guests music taste, we have no tecno or hard rock on our selections, thank you again for reviewing us and we are glad you enjoyed the food, but sorry you didnt enjoy the ambience

Very good curry, excellent service,relaxing space. Pleasant staff, menu had good range of options, more expensive than some of the beach restaurants but the quality is far better. The rooms of the hotel also look comfortable.
10mins in a tuk tuk to get there.

Local taste or international taste, the Asian Jewel still provides the very best food in Hikkaduwa. Maybe its the extra service that is always provided by the staff that adds to the experience.
Anyone staying in Hikkaduwa is recommended to visit the restaurant. But these days you need to book in advance.

We went one night for dinner after hearing about their menu and we really fancied some good, tasty western food after many months in Asia.

Well what can we say, we arrived and it looked stunning. The menu was huge and I finally chose Goulash and my husband chose the Cottage Pie (each meal cost about 1300 rupees), both were wonderful. The staff (especially Parlow) were so attentive and Tanya is a fabulous hostess and we spent a lovely evening chatting to her, she also very kindly arranged lift home for us.

We had a peek at the rooms as well as oh my god, they looked wonderful.

I would highly recommend this place to anybody in Hikkaduwa.

Tip - make sure your tuk tuk driver actually knows where they are going, it should cost 250 rupees and if you have a mobile I would make a note of their telephone number (on their website)
