This has got to be the most over-rated place in unawatuna ever. I have no idea why my friends (locals) flock there always. The service is unfriendly and slow. It took 1 hour or more for our food to arrive and it was terrible too. The "nasi goreng" was just plain rice and tomato sauce mixed into it with lumpy pieces of fried chicken... you would have been lucky to find a prawn in there. Oh and a runny egg on top for the grand price of Rs. 850 each.
The toilets/washrooms are pitifully dirty and smelly. No one seems to bother about cleanliness in the whole place. No one smiles with you. The beach started to smell like dog urination at one point and was unbearable. The sun set and the only CD they have was played - a Bob Marley one with about 5 tracks looping on it.
You frequently get sales people and beggars coming right up to you and trying to sell you stuff/ show their sorrows and make a buck off you and none of the staff do anything about it. The dogs they have are badly taken care of, with a great dane (I think) who's fur was falling off and a couple of other dogs who roam around scratching themselves (note - I ADORE dogs and animals but abhor ignorant pet owners)
The only good thing is that they have an ample parking space for about 5-6 cars. That's about it. There are MUCH better places in una to be at, Happy Banana is damp, smelly, overrated, stupidly expensive and is NOT one of them.
