BEST food in Jaffna and it is CHEAP! The crab curry was delicious.
Atmosphere: Small restaurant, nothing fancy

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

We stayed at the Green Grass hotel and eat three days at its restaurant. Excellent food, very delicious. The best we had in Sri Lanka.
For breakfast they have a small buffet. Enough variety of local and western food. The local bread (paratha) was excellent, combined with spicy Sambal.
For dinner we had various tali dishes, with Nan (another type of local bread), all excellent.
The food can be very spicy sometimes, ask for "no chilli" if you cannot eat spicy.

“This tow has not many bars and needs must”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

I'm not an alcoholic. But after a long and dusty trek through the Jaffna markets I needed a cold beer. Jaffna has wonderful restaurants but largely havens of sobriety.
The green grass is a hotel that is largish with a pool and Restuarant. The food is great, and the curries come with beer. The service is engaging, but not warm.
However the beer is cold and the curry authentic

“Food is good but a little too expenisve.”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

They serve good food, but prices are to high compering to the standard and other restaurants. Interior of the restaurant is too dark, but service is very friendly. We can recomend chicken masala with pepper and Seafood nasigorang.

“Ok for the ones came with me”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

You have to wait long time for getting your order done. We waited 45+ min. Environment is not good. All ways crowded because of the less hotels availability of remote place.

I'm a vegetarian as i expected for me it wasn't tasty. But other folk came with me seems enjoyed their meals(non veg). They even gave 4 out of 5 stars for food. For me 2/5 (I had veggie)

Combined with atmosphere and prolong waiting time i can only give 3 star for max..
Service is friendly

Be warned in pricing deserts were very high compared to meal. If you could avoid desserts to eat in budget.
