Thank you so much for your review, we are so glad you enjoyed everything about our small restaurant and your family rated us as there favorite, your right about the deserts, Chocolate lime Cheese cake and Strawberries and Ice cream run out occasionally, the reason being is the chocolate cheese cake is made daily and frozen to set, once the...

Lovely setting and great food. We came for a meal on New Year's Day. Being british but living out of the UK for 6 months the British touch to the menu was very welcome! Staff were friendly and service was good. Cocktail was much better and cheaper here than on the beach!

The restaurant here is awesome. We had a private room next to the pool and loved everything we ate. The children enjoyed playing games in their game room and because it is off the beaten track they arranged tuk tuks for us too.

Being and lived in SriLanka, surprisingly the best Srilankan rice and curry i ever had was at Asian Jewel hotel, Hikkaduwa which is owned and personally managed by a British gentlemen. The extra creamy thick curries adds an amazing tasty twist compared to authentic curry dishes. Also the peaceful, quiet and hideaway ambiance adds a zen charm to your eating... More

We went for dinner here on Christmas eve given such high reviews but disappointingly the food quality was not as outstanding as was being touted. In all honesty i don’t understand the hype around the restaurant food. We had made a reservation and there was not a soul there apart from us and nothing happening despite it being Christmas eve....

This restaurant is rated as the best restaurant in Hikkaduwa on trip adviser and rightfully so. The food here is outstanding and my favourite restaurant in Sri Lanka. Being vegitarian we were worried we wouldn't find nice veggie food. This place was the one to prove me wrong. The food is simply outstanding! I'm sure their non veg dishes are... More

We visited here for Xmas dinner and were not disappointed. The staff and owner were exceptionally friendly and the service outstanding. The food was plentiful, well cooked and very tasty. The overall package was very well priced. The restaurant is set in a scenic and chilled location. For those wanting something a little bit different and better than the very... More

Showed up today around lunch time without calling. Staff seemed startled at our arrival. But promptly made a table for us with a nice lake view. Service was respectful and kind, albeit slow. The chicken curry was amazing. Mixed green salad was good once the dressing arrived. The spring rolls still frozen and the Papdom platter pretty good. I had... More

Hi Many thanks for reviewing Asian Jewel, I have talked to the kitchen staff and waiters, and Im not sure why they were startled, we were expecting a room arrival about the same time, and maybe they thought it was you, we also had a late breakfast for 10 people who had enjoyed Christmas day the night before and had...

Having read excellent reviews for this restaurant our expectations were perhapse a little high. With a limited fish menu range we decided to try their less traditional fare of carbonara and shepherd's pie both of which were large portions and tasty. Overall, a nice place but the food is no better than the kalla bongo lake resort next door which... More

Well what can I say that has already not been said, not a lot ! The food here is amazing! The restaurant itself is very quaint, not flashy in any way, but a very underlying tone of class and thought behind the whole dining experience at this place. The staff are so friendly and professional and can see why this... More
