Dear Guests, please not that we are closed on Poya Days (full moon days).
We stayed at Peacock Villa just up the road (also highly recommend) and the staff recommended this place. We checked out on TripAdvisor and saw amazing ratings.
The food was so tasty - and incredibly cheap. We ordered chicken, egg and veggie kottu, a bottle of water, and a banoffee roti with ice cream. All of it was delicious but we loved the dessert so much.
We were lucky to not have to wait for a table, but the restaurant was full for the duration.
It seems like a traditional restaurant which has become popular for tourists. Despite this it has retained its local charm.
Altogether our meal cost less than £5 (1,000 rupees) - crazy cheap!

Family run with intimate surroundings. The cook Dimmi lived in Singapore for 4 years working as a nurse in Bishan. She was ecstatic to learn I was from Singapore. Her daughter’s name is Dimali which is the restaurant’s name. When you first walk in, it seems like you are entering someone’s home, the family is gathered, laughing and talking welcoming you into their home. I sat facing the kitchen so you can actually see the women / Dimmi cook. I ordered the mee goreng with prawns which was generously portioned, bits of tomato, garlic and prawn including the shells. The mee goreng has Dimmi’s Sri Lankan twist on it. Juices have bottled water blended fruit. I find Sri Lanka expensive for what you get.

Having stayed next door to plantations I had breakfast and dinner here pretty much every day. The Standard Breakfast choices are delicious especially the porridge which fills you up after an early morning surf. Dinner is also really good you can order from a wide menu or for 500rp have a set dinner (order before 4pm) at the long table with the rest of the guests. This was always a great option, good food (especially the rice & curry) and very sociable with lots of friendly people so ideal when travelling alone.
The food and drinks are really good quality but the best thing about plantations is the staff. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and will go above and beyond to make sure you are looked after. Would thoroughly recommend. Thanks for a great stay Chattu & Family

We have been visiting this cafe on a very regular basis for many years and have just returned after several months away to find that the Seating area has moved from downstairs to upstairs whilst renovations are taking place below. Because of this, the space is cramped at present and you may find it difficult to get a table (we did!). It is an extremely popular place with locals and tourists and serves an incredible range of fresh fruit and vegetable juices as well as some main meals. Service can be very slow so don't go if you are in a hurry. We look forward to returning when the refurbishment is completed and there is hopefully more space.

The best koturotti so far, yes. But when we pay our 750 rkl bill, I gave the lady at the desk 850 rkl and looked around the corner to see my boyfriend. The woman then told me I gave her only 350 rkl. I am 100% sure I handed her all the money. All the men staff looked at me and I know that 500 rkl is not much but it really ruined the experience and pissed me off. Please, be aware while paying...

The restaurant is set outside the owner house in village. We went there with other friends. There was not much choice other than rice and curry. All the food was cold. 5 small shrimp with rice curry (900lkr). curry was reheated. Very bad foods experience in Weligama. People who know srilankan curries and real taste in srilankan cuisine.
Its not your place.

Really home made foods. Vegetarian currys, fish currys, chicken currys, prawn currys, cuttle fish currys, milk currys, hot spycy currys, medium spycy currys, No spycy currys (pure coconut milk and true spices with preparing). Noodles, fried rice, kottu, Soup, devilled, fried potatoes, Fresh seafoods, fresh fruit juices, Hot pancakes, Western and traditional breakfast, Dessert and hot beverages.
I can agree with all of the positive reviews over here. Brilliant cooking lesson with exquisite tasting food.
Please note that it’s on the second level from the street. And sort of behind of the Thaprobal Pavillion Hotel. Alongside the road from Unawatuna beach towards the Jungle Beach.
However, I feel a bit sad since these people would need help to increase their business. Best to contact them in advance via their FB page if going there only to eat lunch/dinner. I highly recommend the cooking lesson!
I wish all the best to the 2 lovely ladies running the place.

Now open for lunches as well. Gave us the opportunity to taste the lagoon prawns, barracuda and snappers. Fresh prepared what you choose from the desk.
Unbelievable what they do in that small kitchen. Enjoy with your feet in the sand.
Bring your own alcoholic drinks.

We have cheapest Price, good quality Restaurant in Weligama.We provide air condition Cab Service with Personally assist persons for Long distance trips on very economical rate. Also we provide all tourist information....<br><br>Don't hesitate we are always with you...<br><br>Welcome to Sri Lanka
This place was a huge disappointment and only went due to the tripadvisor reviews. Worst curry i had in Sri Lanka and probably the worst curry i have ever had. We ordered two curries. Everything but the curry sauce was freezing cold. The rice and dhal were stone cold and awful. Roti also terrible. The portion of chicken was so small and by far the smallest portion i have had in sri lanka. Especially when this place was not cheap. It also did not taste very nice. We barely ate the food which was very clear and the server did not even ask how it was.

Cosy and colorful Sushi Restaurant in a big garden on the river in Mirissa. Relax in our hammocks, enjoy our homemade cheesecake and muffins and of course our delicious Sushi. We are right by the river, you can access us over our bridge, or from the road, right beside Dewmini Roti Shop. We also have one comfortable room for rent. Stay with us at Little Tuna and never be far away from your favorite food :)
Don't expect the best sushi you've ever had, but having some sushi for a change in Sri Lanka after so manny curries.. mjamm!
Tuna was not of very special quality, the crab role was very good though. Portions are not too big, ended up ordering allmost all the rolls on the menu for the two of us. Unfortunately no tempura dishes (which work so nice in a roll..).
Prices are high for Sri Lankan standards I guess, but still ok. So if you're up for something different, and also have some time left (service is quite slow), go here, and when service takes a bit longer, take your beer and go and chill in a hammock!
