We had the grilled seafood curry which was just fabulous. Wish we had had more opportunities to eat here as we would have come back for more. Very friendly, great food

Food is good, although a bit spicy for European people, so make sure to ask not spicy in case you don't like spicy food. I got calamari, which were too spicy, but owner of the place was very helpful and offered smth else very quickly to make sure it is not spicy! Many thanks:)

Located opposite Koko's towards the street, Pink Elephant is a great home run place. The owner, who is fluent in English & Russian, is hands on and is a great local source for information. Always full during our stay in Unawatuna, this place serves some decent mix of food. Service was very slow, but we didn't mind it on holiday!

Continental breakfast for 500 rps is totally worth it - juice&tea included, AS well AS two eggs and black bread instead of the usual toast slices. We can recommend it!!

The place got me with the right music playing and then a super tasty guacamole served with moscow mule made me feel at home! The company was excellent and it hooked me all evening. Totally recommended, don't you miss pink elephant!

Good relaxed vibe, friendly staff, good food and excellent Sri Lankan curry! One of the best I've had in a long time (worth the wait!). So good, I ate there every night while in Unawatuna.

We had dinner here and came back 2 more evenings which means something. The wraps are very good, and they have some thai-inspired dishes as well. Lovely atmosphere as well.

Thank Koert V
