Jina's is named after the chef Mr. Jinasena. This is hands down the best Vegan restaurant in the area. My family and I had dinner here - 2 days in a row. Even though we went on week day nights, the place is packed. Be advised that Jina will take his time and prepare each dish personally, so it does... More

Nice spot away from the beach and really nice vegetarian curry We both had the Indian thali and ordered one spicy and one mild. Slightly to our surprise that's exactly how they came! Portions not huge but prices are very reasonable

First time I came across jina's restaurant was when a friend of mine was raving about their delicious organic chocolate cake. Ever since I am a frequent guest at Jina's for breakfast (my favorites are the Sri Lankan muesli with fresh fruit and curd,Mexican style huevos rancheros with avocado on top and the organic coffee or yogi tea) and dinners....

Food was tasty and fresh! However, not a huge menu to choose from and bit pricey for the portions. Venue could do with vast improvements. Would recommend visiting if you are staying nearby.

I really fancied some soup and was pleased when I saw leek and potato on the menu. However, it was served without any bread, not even the offer of bread at extra cost, it was very thin and green, it had a strange taste, maybe it was potato and something else, I'm not sure. When I ordered I asked if... More

We visited a few times whilst in Unawatuna, once for lunch, once for dinner and once for cake! Lots of people have obviously complained about the wait but we had no issues at all, the food is cooked fresh and to order. Curry was delicious and definitely recommended! Chocolate cake is awesome and it was nice to have a proper... More

A very popular Restaurant at the front of the Zimmer Rest, which is always full and busy. Family run and the food is always fresh and tasty and has some unusual dishes.

We are not really picky when it comes to food. Today when we arrived at Unawatuna we were happy to see a place full of vegetarian dishes. Although it's not a nice Restaurant from the outside we gave it a try in the evening after looking it up on Tripadvisor. We ordered the "burger special" for 800 Rupies (+10% service... More

Although the cost is a bit more than other places in Unawatuna, it's worth it! Jina is there to create for you every day and he is an awesome host! He genuinely cares about his customers! His food is fresh made to order. He serves fresh French press coffee. For a special occasion, I asked him privately a couple days... More
