We ate here for lunch today and we had an amazing meal! I ordered pumpkin curry and rice and my girlfriend ordered a simple vegetable sandwich with fries! As it was just one woman in the kitchen making all the meals the food took a bit of time to prepare but it was definitely worth the wait! By far the... More

This place is a little gem. The restaurant is quite small only having 6 or so tables but as a family feel to it. On arrival we ordered two starters ( soup ) & our main courses ( the 4 curry dish ). It took nearly 50 mins for our starters to arrive & our main course turned up 20... More

Went to happy spice for dinner and just wow! Although we had a bit of a wait every second was worth it one of the best curries I've had in the 6 months I've been in Sri Lanka! Have the rice and curry, all the options are amazing!!

Went here for a quick lunch before heading to Galle. We had a chicken pancake which was really good! Juices were nice as well! Has a Hungarian link because the female owner is/was married to a Hungarian guy, which explains the Hungarian on their menu :-)

A good meal takes some time but it's totally worth it! Loads of overpriced restaurants in this area but this is a fair price!

Been there for dinner. Me and my wife both had the rice and curry (4 curries is served with this dish) but I had the chicken and she had the fish. You have to wait a while as the dishes are prepared from scratch. But when your food eventually comes, it makes up for the wait. The portion is large... More

We found this place to serve lovely Sri Lankan food. The food was tasty, reasonably priced and good portions. We visited here multiple times during our stay. We would recommend. It is all freshly made so there may be a little wait for food but we found this to be a reasonable wait (and no longer than other places) and... More

A very unhappy meal and experience I am afraid. We waited 20 minutes for our drinks and 90 minutes for our mains. The chef seemingly prepared everything from scratch (an obvious perk) but timings were totally compromised as a result. Not impressive considering that we were quite literally the only customers! Having said that, when the food arrived, it was... More

Prepare your self for a lengthy wait but the food was outstanding! Ordered the vegetarian curry, which was one of the best I had had. Definitely worth the wait!!
