A very simple place in the midst of a busy street. Best time to go is in the evening with the sea breeze blowing into the restaurant. The food tastes good and isn't too expensive.

It's a nice place to sit in this roof restaurant with this one Reggae CD they play all evening long ;-) The Indian prawn dish was quite good but the fish we ordered was either undercooked or too old. The juice contained much water and pieces of peel.

Very relaxed place with great food and great service. The chillness is contagious; their pet dog Bodhi is honestly the most relaxed dog I have ever seen.

This place is on 1st floor with dim lighting. We were the only people here to eat. We ordered chilly potato and pasta. Food is okay, not authentic. Chilly potato were not actually the authentic one. But okay to eat here. Prices are also not very high

I had a good meal in this place, the waiter, as well as the owner who welcomed me, were nice and professional. The food was fresh and arrived quickly. I really appreciated the balance of spices for the chicken! Really tasty, and just "firy" as I like! The surroundings are pretty calm, and the view is on the street leading... More

Excellent place for a good curry,they also do momos. We tried here a couple of nights ago and we're glad we did. My wife had the mixed seafood curry(plenty of seafood in it) while I had the dal,both were excellent served by a smiling happy waiter washed down (again) with a bottle of Kingfisher,a great night.

We walked into this restaurant to get away from the rain! What a find. Friendly owners; excellent, home-made food! This is no gastro place and they definitely don't pretend to be. Will definitely choose to come here next time we are in Mahabalipuram.
