10 vegan dishes in clay pots offering by Nina during lunchtime

When we decided to have lunch we were told that its a buffet and we can have ten vegan curries eat as much as you like. The curries were delicious and freshly made coming straight from the gas hob. There were different clay pots with varieties of vegetables, rice, beans and potatoes.

We ended up trying every curry filling up our plates to the top and experience authentic Sri Lankan curries. We got to meet all the family and they were very kind, attentive and kept offering us more food.

At the end of our meal, we were offered a speciality coconut tea on the house which was very tasty. We loved the place and the family which we connected very well with.

Nina is a must visit if you are in Trincomalee to experience truly Sri Lankan vegan cuisine.

Overall: Delicious Sri-Lankan food freshly made! For lunch, you can get 10 vegetable curries and rice in the form of a buffet.

You can find the whole family helping out with cooking and running the restaurant.
