This small family run restaurant is a must!! The people are so friend & the meals are full of flavour. Slightly hidden down the alley way but worth stopping by. The menu includes a story about the background of the family - a nice touch :)

We had dinner at Black and White restaurant last night. The most beautiful setting on the beach lit by candlelight. Our waiter was fantastic and so friendly!We went to have a look at today’s fish which was freshly caught that day and had it all explained by the head chef (who was also great and very friendly!). We went with the jumbo prawns and tiger prawns and oh my goodness!! They were cooked in a garlic butter sauce and were INCREDIBLE! And we had finger bowls which is the first restaurant that has provided us with these this trip (without asking)!Highly recommend Black and White restaurant to anyone visiting Unawatuna. Our most favourite meal whilst in Sri Lanka and that is saying something as the food has been fabulous. Service makes the experience even better. See you next time!Dear chaireytucksWe appreciate the time you took to share your thoughts about our restaurant.

Came here on the recommendation of locals and we were not disappointed. Great little find down a narrow alleyway off main road. Food was superb - all freshly cooked, great choice on the menu, homemade, huge portions. We had a starter and a main and ended up ordering an extra of humous to take home as it was so nice.Plenty of choice if you wanted to return.

Wasantha’s Sri Lanka Cuisine

Sri Lankan cooking is an art of its own. It's not about reading recipe books. It's food made from the heart and made out of pride. Wasanthi's kitchen is just that. A place to indulge your taste buds in what real in the Sri Lankan kitchen

Reviewed By AisMc2013

What a fabulous day we had with Wasantha and her daughter. Our morning at the local market was good fun. We got to choose the vegetables to go into our curries. It was lovely to have this option and shows great flexibility with the very talented chef! We chose okra, mango, aubergine and beetroot. We then went along to the fish market to choose tuna. There was a great buzz around the markets and Wasantha’s daughter was very polite and shared lots of information about the food on offer.Back at their home is where the real fun began. Set up on a high slope along the winding streets of Unawatuna is Wasantha’s hidden gem of a restaurant. Their kitchen is outdoors and we were perfectly covered during the monsoon outside. Lots of AC too. We prepared and chopped our vegetables as Wasantha and her daughter talked us through the small steps of our meals. We had such fun and we were blown away by Wasantha’s skill. She’s an incredible chef and it was truly watching a master at work. Her precision and attention to detail was so natural and fascinating to watch. We prepared 5 curries in total which was served with white rice and poppadoms. The mango curry was the best curry either of us had ever had and the deep fried aubergine was something we’ll cook over and over again! We took pictures of Wasantha’s recipes at the end and enjoyed a really lovely chat with Wasantha as she shared the history of her restaurant.An absolute must do and one of the best cooking classes I’ve ever done. Wasantha is a spectacular chef who we learned so much from. Her class is one of the most reasonable by far and I’d struggle to imagine any could be better. I can’t wait to visit Wasantha’s restaurant again one day. Dear Aislin and David Thank you so much for taking a moment of your time to write us this amazing review, it means a lot to us. We hope that we did our best and you enjoyed the class well. We hope to see you someday soon Thank you, Wasantha

We did not stay at this lovely property but ate in it 3 nights out of 7! Food was wonderful, beside the sea with turtles popping their heads up a few metres away in the waves. Great, friendly staff and freshly prepared food. Also one of the fab swings that goes over the sea is part of the property.
