Have been to mahabalipuram over 8 times and this is the best place I have come across so far. The place is cosy, has great ambience and staff is excellent. Food is little overpriced offering western, Chinese, North Indian and pizzas. Definitely worth a visit if only for a coffee.

The place is cosy, clean and has a nice atmosphere. The waiter, an older man, could smile more, but still he was quite nice and at least he did not confuse our orders. The fruit salad was good and the "paneer 65" was totally delicious.

Expensive for what you get. Momos were good. Lots of fresh vegetables served with every dish that we weren't sure we're safe to eat. Friendly service.

the place looks average, not very well kept though, but the food offered is very well prepared and the quantities are sumptuous.

The restaurant had the same menu, music and decoration than most other restaurant place of "hippie-like" touristic places of India. The waiter was not friendly and the quality of the food average.

Buddha Cafe was recommended to me by my vegetarian friend. Even though India has a lot of vegetarian options, not all are the same. Here we could find authentic Tibetan, Indian and Chinese courses at affordable prices. Besides great taste the dishes were served in a very attractive manner. Salads were served with dark brown European bread which the owner... More
