I spent a morning here using a sunbed and buying their drinks. At lunch time, having just ordered food, a group of 6 walked along the beach... I've never seen anything like it... the staff were up off their seats, arranging beds and umbrellas for this group, (acting like god had arrived)... and suddenly I was pushed aside and my... More

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
