We ate here two nights in a row, both times falling in love with the vegetable curry. The Jackfruit and also Mango chutney is the piece de resistance!

Beautiful food in a humble home setting. You come here for the food and leave wanting more. MUST STOP DESTINATION.

Amazing food. The curries come with a selection of veg curries which are arguably the best part. We had the baked fish too which was great and comes with an amazing chili butter sauce. the banana fritters are a must too.

The owner is great too, she's super friendly and really cares about you enjoying your meal.

Ate here two nights whilst staying at the Sole Luna Hotel next door. The owners were super friendly and made us feel so welcome into their restaurant. The first night we had the chicken curry and it was very tasty. There were a few of the sides that we liked more than others and the next day we ordered bigger portions of the things we loved and the hosts were so accommodating. One the best traditional meals I’ve had in Sri Lanka so far and if we were staying another night I’d go back again. Both meals were very reasonable and the portions were generous. Huge thumbs up for Chanika Restaurant.

We had delicious vegetarian curry, grilled fish and a fruit desert. If you like good food combined with nice people we recommend to eat here. Dont get irritated by the restaurant across the street with lightning and rather pick Chanika :)
