With my husband we visited this restaurant several times as we heard from different people that Thaproban made incredible tuna steaks. This is true!!! Before Wijaya Beach Restn. was my favorite in respect of Tuna steaks, but I have totally changed my mind now. Highly recommend! And Passion fruit Mohito is just a right one.

The vibe of the place is great, the waiters are so welcoming and helpful. Selected our fresh seafood by hand and it was cooked to perfection. The tuna, especially, was phenomenal. I am definitely going to go back before leaving Unawatuna!
