We ate here for five nights in a row and found all the food to be very very tasty. In fact it was the tastiest food that we ate in the whole of our time in Sri Lanka.
There was a lot of choice on the menu but the Sri Lankan and Indian curries were all absolutely delicious. Jina took a lot of pride in preparing his food and was very friendly. You sometimes had to wait a while for the food to arrive but it was always worth it.
One thing worth mentioning though....one of the waiters had a cough which was really off-putting when he was carrying food back and forward from the kitchens. Don't let that put you off though!

As someone who is not a vegetarian and does eat meat and fish, we were intrigued enough by the reviews of this restaurant enough to try some of the dishes on the menu on more than one ocassion. We particularly enjoyed the nachos, the Banana smoothie was the best my boyfriend had ever had and it was clear that the ingredients were incredibly fresh. Food lovingly created!

We ate here three times during our five day stay in Unawatuna, Gina explains that food is prepared with love and we certainly experienced this. The peacock pie was absolutely delicious! Gina does alternate between a choice of three set menu's, but you can order anything from the menu if you let him know at lunchtime or when you make your reservation the day before (as we did with the peacock pie, as we'd heard good things about it and wasn't disappointed). Gina's food is tasty and innovative, and I recommend highly.

Hi, a couple of friends and I went to this restaurant as 2 were vegetarian and it had been recommended. When we went the food was not good for all of us couldn't finish our meals. The seating is in the driveway. The place was pretty empty actually. The food was some of the worst I have trasted. Don't do it.
