We went to the Asian Jewel on recommendation and were not disappointed. It is a lovely place - very peaceful - but wished we had gone at sunset so we could see the lagoon. The menu was extensive and varied. Everyone really enjoyed their food and the portions were very generous. The puddings looked lovely too, but we were so... More

This place was quite a long way from the hikkaduwa beach and a little hard to find, but it was definitely worth a visit. It was a bit more expensive than most restaurants in Sri Lanka but still relatively cheap and the food was really good! However, they do not know how to make cocktails so don't bother ordering one,... More

Another great Hikkaduwa restaurant, which is off the beaten track. This is set in a beautiful villa, overlooking a lake. Arriving around sunset time gives lovely views over the lake and surroundings. This is a mixed SL / European cuisine menu, so if you`re tired of rice and curry, you can have something more Euro and equally if you want... More

Honestly the only place I've found that does a proper full English. Great food, service and positioned right by the lake!

Wow what I can say.... I went for the English Mega breakfast.. I can hands down say that this is the best breakfast going south of Colombo.. This breakfast is more English than a Roast lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Real sausages, Heinz baked beans.. the lot. This is a must whilst in hikka.

After travelling around Sri Lanka for 2 weeks we thought we had concurred the curry but this place blew us all away. The curry was so fresh and so full of flavour. The tuna was perfectly cooked pink in the middle and both curries were amazing. The Sri Lanka curry has to be ordered 2 hours in advance which we... More

We came for lunch. Very limited Sri Lankan options. There were only 2 other diners, besides us, but the main course took an hour and 20 mins to reach the table. The battered prawns, that we ordered for starters, took 45 mins and were not deveined. An easy way out for the cook, assuming that prawns covered in batter won't... More

hi thank you for your re review, i have checked your order the starter came out after 20 minutes and yes the main course did take a bit of time to come out 35 minutes after your starter, as we were short staffed due to the sri lankan new year, not your fault but maybe i should have closed like...

After the long haul from London followed by a 2hr drive from the airport, to arrive at the Asian Jewel was wonderful. Despite the many documented reviews, it really has to be seen to be appreciated... there is a certain tranquility that exudes from the hotel encompassing staff and guests alike... this Sri Lankan hideaway has had an English understanding...

Hidden gem in Hikkaduwa! Asked a local about a nice more authentic and less touristy place to visit. Great curries and fresh fish& seafood! Overlooking the lagoon and away from the crowded beach centre . It's a boutique hotel as well and refereed that was staying somewhere else :::

We found the service was attentive, the meal was reasonably priced and the experience was like dinner at a local friends home.
