Brilliant little family run restaurant, with reasonably priced local dishes. Coped extremely well with GF's allergies (milk, nuts) and were friendly and helpful. Delicious food, too.

We stumbled across Happy Spice after seeing some good reviews on TripAdvisor. We had breakfast there yesterday. The place doesn't look much but don't be fooled by the appearance. Get away from all the places selling boring western breakfasts and make sure you eat the way the Sri Lankan's do. We ordered Coconut Roti and the onion Sambol which was... More

Everything that you would expect from a traditional restsurant. Homely delish curry and rice, with as yummy curd and treacle chaser. Also a dam good like juice that won't break the bank like most of the other places in this town.

Pros: + Big dishes with decent prices. + Good beverage selection with cocktails. Cons: - Limited seating capacity. Downstair section may look a bit crowded. - Some may find toilet to be... More
