The best organic restaurant in Hikkaduwa

Visiting Hikkaduwa and in search of some yummy organic Sri Lankan food? Then Temptation restaurant is the place for you. It’s a small spot situated on Galle Road and makes for the perfect lunchtime nibble when breaking from the beach.



This cute abode serves up yummy vegan options as well dishes for those who favour meat. We stumbled across this tiny restaurant on a hungry walk in search of anything veggie (which is easy to find in Sri Lanka – they do the best veggie curries!) and Temptation caught our greedy eyes thanks to the organic and vegan signs. We were sold. We chowed down on lightly fried samosas and dahl curry all whilst chatting to the friendly staff and chef – it was a delight, we love it when a random restaurant choice turns out to be the best idea of the day!




They don’t have a website but have a great rating on Trip Advisor which as a traveller, is all you need to know. If you fancy tasting some seriously good organic vegtables served up with a smile (and some delicious papadums) then get your arse down to Temptation if you find yourself passing through Hikkaduwa on your travels. We were not dissapointed!

Food rating – YUM
Cost – $$ (great for a backpackers budget)
