The place makes amazing passion fruit mohito...you have to try. Price is reasonable. We didn't eat here so don't know about the food but the people here are really friendly. Lassa the surf guru will entertain you if you're wanting a conversation. Suddu makes the best mohito ever. Thanks guys

I don't know how these restaurants that sit in a row one after the other on the beach can survive, especially when they are so bland. I had the seafood curry, my girlfriend had the prawn curry. It was really nothing special. As with so many reviews on Trip Advidor, this place is way over rated. I can't even manage... More

Curries are a bit bland and cold, the prices are fairly cheap but you need a few dishes to fill you up so it adds up being more. Wouldn't come again but it wasn't the worst meal in my life.

We were hoping that this place would live up to its recent reviews however we were the only customers when nearby restaurants were buzzing which should have set the alarm bells ringing. No cocktails as no Barman and our vodka cokes had no ice and the cokes weren't cold. Not being deterred we ordered the famous rice dish 2 curries... More

Small family restaurant with the best food we tasted in Sri Lanka. We went there several times and so did the other customers, we started to recognize each other. Great food everytime. We can strongly recommend their curry. Great drinks, not pricey. Staff friendly, located right on the beach. Kitchen and toilet clean. On the negative side, not open for... More

This place was right on the beach with seating in the shade. The service was nice but the food was just bad and slow. Their club sandwich was dry came with about 7 individual fry and it wasn't cheap. Waited 50 minute for fried chicken (we were the only ones there) and it was so dry I could barely eat... More

We had the best rice and curry here in Sri Lanka. Taste is just amazing. Staff is really friendly, nice atmosphere. It's true you need to wait quite long, but it definetely worth it. I'm sorry we discovered this place on our last day in Unawatuna, otherwise we would have come back several times.
