Tasty, cheap, great portion size. Lovely lady owner making her own spices and using great ingredients from her garden. Local and real. Recommend!

Dimali has absolutely best typical Sri Lankan food in Mirissa. Especialy Kottu and cocumber soup. You should definitely try their cookery leasons! We also got recommandation for a local spicy shop with very good prices and lot of multiple-choices. The host is so sweet and smiling all the time! We felt like home there ❤️

This is the only eateries that charged us additional 10% tax. Not mentioning food was overpriced and the worst curry I had in my 10 days. Well, It can be due to our personal taste, but one star is the max I can rate.

We had lunch here and were so happily overwhelmed by the amount of love that was put into our meal. Everything was prepared fresh just for us because we arrived early. The food was the best we have had in Sri Lanka so far without a doubt! And very very cheap. Where possible a lot of the ingredients were sourced from right next to us in the garden!
On top of this, after our meal, we asked the owner Dammi for recommendations of where to buy fresh chicken and vegetables. As luck would have it she was going food shopping and offered to give us guidance so we got local chef's advice on where to get all the best things and our very own personal food!
We went back the following day to do the cookery class and just amazed at how much love and care both Dammi and Mama put into the cooking!
We would highly recommend this place, don't be put off by the entrance, just walk straight through and you will be warmly welcomed! We'll be back!
