“Could have been four star”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Chilled out hippy vibe. In one corner folk singing with guitar whilst on the bar, a Sonos sound system pumping out deep house. I sampled the tuna wrap, tasty after a day spent on the beech, the Sri Lankan curry as good as ever. The issue is that the lounge seats are very dirty (understandably as people relax on these and drop food), so the easy answer is to clean these regularly.

“Great food”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

One of the two best places to eat in unawatuna as most of the places serve the same food and this offers some variation

“Hearty middle eastern fare - no alcohol”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We had lunch here twice during our stay in Unawatuna and it was tasty, hearty fare on both occasions. The kebabs and wraps come with a coleslaw salad and decent chips. Quality food which is why we came back twice but service was awful. The stoner waiters seemed very disappointed every time we needed something and they had to be called away from chilling with the backpackers that were staying there!

“Nice atmosphere, not the best food...”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

Went on a warm weekday night for dinner. Had the mixed grill, as revommended by the friendly waiter. Food was decent enough, but nothing more. Atmosphere was good, but with tourists only - as far as we could see.
