Jade Green Tea Centre & Restaurant

Reviewed By Worldwanderer83 - London, United Kingdom

If you look for authentic local food (with a few western options as well) try this place. Best for curry (chicken w all condiments) and their potato salad w onions; amazing. Also good for people watching over Main Street. The in-keeper with wife was very friendly and accommodated me after a short waiting time with warmth and a smile.
I will be back when traveling to SLanka in the future.

Adam's Breeze

The best food our family had in Sri Lanka!

Reviewed By Mitchell J

Sat in the corner that looks out at the forest and watched the birds while we enjoyed the Sri Lankan breakfast and the fruit roti, both were good. Very close to the start of Little adams peak, would recommend before or after the hike.

Kirindioya Restaurant & Hotel

Reviewed By Shahe A - Colombo, Sri Lanka

Wellawaya is a very central location on your way to popular local destinations such as yala & Arugam Bay. If you haven't planned your meal stops, its gonna be a messy affair with many trips to the bathroom.
Fortunately we came across this gem of a location thanks to an overly eager villager. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the place. It is a small restaurant serving mostly rice and curry dishes serving the local pallet. The restaurant is very clean and food is reasonably priced with good sized servings.
Even the washrooms are clean and well kept. Definitely recommended to drop in if your in the area.

AK Ristoro

Reviewed By the0ldduke - Gloucestershire

Decided to take a break from Sri Lankan food during our 2 week holiday and saw this restaurant included an Italian menu. A (small) queue waiting for a table suggested it was popular and we were not disappointed, the food and atmosphere were very good. We chose a pasta dish, it was very tasty and well cooked, certainly equivalent to good Italian restaurants that I've visited in UK and across Europe but considerably less expensive. We were so impressed that we returned the following evening. The restaurant also offers Japanese and Sri Lankan dishes. The restaurant is a little difficult to find as it is off the main street but is well worth the effort.

Lanka Restaurant

We Provide Cooking Classes Daily At 4:30pm

Reviewed By Faithalicious_x - London, United Kingdom

This class costs 2000 rupees (£10) and was a good introduction to cooking some of the meals that we had eaten already during our time in Sri Lanka.
The class started at 5 and we cooked until about half 7 before sitting down to eat our meal. All the options we made were vegetarian (though we were told what other veg or meat we could use at home instead). We were shown how to make momordica Curry, breadfruit curry, dahl, artichoke curry, coconut roti and an aubergine dish.
It was fun and informative but I was hoping we would make our own dishes individually. Instead we chopped the vegetables while the guide cooked the dishes himself, he would explain what he was doing and we would make notes for ourselves. We weren't given a recipe book.
The place can be reached by tuk tuk (he can call one for you on the way back) or can be reached on foot if you are staying in Ella town.

The Different corner

Reviewed By aimsjm

Food is tasty and reasonably priced but the service is slow and crap. We were ‘temporarily’ sat on a tiny stool in the corner while we waited for a table to become free but the table went to someone who’d just walked in off the street! Our food took an hour to arrive, even the popadoms that when asked if we wanted with our drinks we said yes!
Come an hour before you want to eat...

This Place was quite hard to find, but im so glad we found IT! Both the lamprais and the curry dish were outstanding. Especially the aubergine curry, jackfruit curry and the potatoe curry were simply Marvelous!

Art cafe Umbrella

Reviewed By Clare B - Geelong, Australia

We dined here for a late breakfast after climbing Adams peak.
Ordering the muesli with yoghurt, fruit salad, toast with jams, veggie rice and drinks.
Highlight was the drinks. Muesli was nice also, toast was dry.
Staff are sweet and friendly. Service was fairly prompt and food was decent.
