The hamburger is a joke, about 10 grams of meat and terrible taste. The waitress gave me a small bottle of water when I paid for a big, when I complained he said that it was the only one that was cold and I still need to pay the same price as for a big one.

If you will be in Unawatuna don't miss this place as it has most delicious tom yum soup I've ever tried, really and it's also not expensive, just about 400 rupees per cup! We came here every day for that soup! Butter prawns are also very tasty, you'll get big portion with french fries and cheeps in addition. Once we... More

The importation of five shiploads of Indian sand has transformed Unawatuna beach, so restaurants at the west end are no longer being eaten away by the sea, and you can wallow in acres of sunbeds and umbrellas. Coral Light has benefitted from this, and they have used the extra space to make a more spacious eating area. The food is... More

Visited this place around 6.30pm. We were the only two people there eating and to be honest the service was pretty poor. The food was just ok. My wife's chicken dish was pretty good but my burger was terrible. It tasted a little funny that when I looked it was as though there were two slices of hogs pudding in... More

We ordered some fresh fish they brought in from the market the same day. It was served with some rice and a very tasty tomato, garlic, onion sauce. Staff was very friendly as in most places in Sri Lanka. Went there twice for dinner during our four days in Unawatuna.

I ordered the seafood curry and it was cheap MSG type rice, and tasted bland. After that, I was sick wen I got home, probably because the seafood was off. It also took aged to serve the food. So not worth it. Other customers were eating cheap looking oven chips and plain unhealthy white bread sandwiches. I would NOT recommend... More
