Dinner tonight was great and reasonably priced. We had fish and chicken curries with beetroot curry and green bean curry and rotis. All beautifully cooked and served by the friendly owner and cook. Cold beer and free WiFi. It's very much under construction and the decor it must be said is rough round the edges. But don't miss the food!!!

We had a cooking class with Chinta and she explained every step very well in a very relaxed atmosphere. The food was excellent and plenty! Highly recommended!

We decided to take a 10-minute tuk-tuk ride to Unawatuna to escape the tourist-heavy food in Galle Fort. Based on the reviews of this restaurant on TripAdvisor, we went straight to Happy Spice and boy was that a good move. The service was warm and friendly, the setting was comfortable, and the food was without exception AMAZING. We started with an onion sambol roti -- extraordinary. The roti had just the right amount of char, and it encased a delicious mixture of onion, lime juice, and chili. We could've eaten three more, if we didn't have such other great food still to come.

The devilled prawns were delicious, sweet and fresh and perfectly cooked, and the sauce was perfect. We also ordered rice and four vegetable curries -- great okra, wonderful dahl, delicious pumpkin, and fresh coconut sambol. Each curry was delicately spiced and great. For dessert we ordered banana fritters, one with ice cream and one with honey. AMAZING. It's hard to find new ways to say how wonderful each dish was, we're running out of superlatives, but they are all well-deserved. If only we had more nights here, we'd eat here again and again.

my cousin and i stayed in that area for a total of six days, and had our breakfast and dinner meals solely at Happy Spice. It was a total enjoyment getting to know the whole family as well as Chintha. we definately felt like being surrounded in a very hospitable place and look forward to future visits to this wonderful eatery.
