“Don't expect too much”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We were thrilled to see that there is a vegan restaurant in Unawatuna, so we went there just the next evening. The food we ordered was good (fresh soup, salad and sri lanka curry), just the curry could have been better and for the salad we hardly had something on the plate. For the prices (plus 10% service charge) the value was under our expectations. You can get better in Unawatuna. The atmosphere was nothing special, esp. for a place with such a great ranking here I would expect more.

“It is good, but do not be mistaken”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Try the rice and curry - it is very nice. Jina would like us to believe he is an altruistic person, but he is of course a hard core business man.

“nice place but aware for routine”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

the intention of this restaurant is very good, also the attitude to food and how to prepare it. But it's difficult to make the same high quality every day. We came there on the special Indian day to eat Indian dosa and we think it could be done better.

“MUST VISIT”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Service is very personalized. Food is great....and fresh! We were in Galle for just one night. Accidentally crossed this place and had dinner. Next day, when we were leaving Galle, we went back specially to get tea and cake.

“If I would have to be vegeterian I would live near this place”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

I hardly imagine a meal without meat but this restaurant persuaded me that vegeterian and vegan food can taste absolutely fantastic. We had a word with the chef. Nicest person ever. Hope to see him and his cooking again soon. Its a definite must try if you are in Unawatuna.
