I've been trying the top-ranked restaurants around Unawatuna, wasn't impressed until I came here. The 4-curry dishes are where it's at. Absolutely delicious. Big portions and also best price-to-quality in the area. We are here a couple more days and will definitely be back!

Best food in Sri Lanka after 2 weeks of travelling. Great service!! All of us got our foods at the same time. Everything was served with a smile. We went back for breakfast, which didn't leave us hanging. :) Tonight we'll pop by for dinner again.

We had dinner and also participated in a cooking class at Happy Spice and the food was just amazing. The coconut sambal is one of the best things I have ever eaten! And since we also took a cooking class I can guarantee that the food is made fresh from scratch. The coconut milk is made straight from fresh coconuts... More

Delicious curry, cheap beer and cocktails with happy smiley waiter. Toilet is a bit dirty but most toilets in Sri Lanka are.

Got the 4 curry dish, absolutely loved it, the coconut sambal was delicious, would have loved a few more popadoms though to scoop up the curry. Food is delicious, prepared with love and reasonably priced. I cleaned my plate and would love to go back.

We took the cooking class and it was great! We made traditional Sri Lankan rice and curry which includes: fish curry, chicken curry, eggplant curry, dahl, okra curry, pumpkin curry and coconut sambal. It was very hands on, we chopped all the veggies, put all the spices in, even grated some coconut! The best part is you get to eat... More

This is a Sri-Lanki restaurant near the beach area. We were staying at the Tartaruga beachfront resort, and it was literally a minute or two away. There are two floors in this restaurant, upper floor has a nice setup and is recommended, but ground floor isn't bad either. Owner is a very kind lady (wearing richly colored clothes in one... More
