We searched for hours down the main road.. looking for a quiet, clean place close to the giant beach and the coral reef. We found the curry bowl right between the two! The rooms were spacious and very clean. You get a nice seating area outside your room.. the property is well taken care of. Top notch mosquito net even...

Absolutely loved this gorgeous guesthouse whose garden leads you down to the beach. It was perfectly peaceful, the food was great and the service outstanding. It was a home away from home and the staff were lovely, with nothing being too much for them. The proprietor, Conrad, was an excellent host. I will definitely return to this gem that has...

The dinner was really good, especially the biryiani. The dishes were abundant and tasty! You don't wait a lot to dine and the chef always asks if everything is good. He is very funny and nice. Beautiful sight on the sea with palms everywhere

As some reviews said, this place used to be a good value for money. But it was before. Now, you have a very simple room, not especially charming, with cold water, for 50-60 dollars, breakfast NOT included ! Our bedroom was particularly noisy but it wasn't on the seaside. It does not worth it clearly. Everything you ask is charged...

A very lovely owner and such a friendly staff. A absolutely nice house with beautiful rooms and a amazing little garden. The curry was one of the best I enjoyed. If you need break, this is the place to go! Thanks for the lovely hospitality!

Delicious fish curry. Nice little place, calm , relaxed and delicious food. Highly recommend the fish curry, even though everything I tasted was delicious. Best food I had in Sri Lanka. Even though I didn't stay there the rooms also looked clean and nice.

The Curry Bowl is a wonderful peacefully place in the middle of busy and noisy Hikkaduwa. All rooms are fine - think I have stayed in most of them over the years :) Food is excellent. The sea-view from the garden can't be much better. Mr Conrad and the staff are ever so friendly and helpful. This is my favourite...

Was unsure about eating here as it seemed quiet and when looking at the menu there were 3 very enthusiastic people hovering around us - we ate here however and the curry was really nice and so were the staff. We chose which 3 vegetable curry dishes we wanted and the portion size was good. I expect this place to...

Arriving in Hikkaduwa unexpectedly one evening, I checked out a few other guest houses before coming across Curry Bowl Guest House and Restaurant. I was instantly greeted by Conrad who showed me around and immediately (and with ease) helped me sort out a room. I stayed in the room with sea view and it was such a cosy little spot...
