I always travel on a budget and this restaurant seemed like a perfect place for a meal in busy Varkala... The location is fine and I like it's simplicity. Unfortunately each time I went there with my partner (we tried 3 times!!!) there was always something wrong with the food. It was either too sweet or too oily. On our... More

The food was good and there was a large selection. The service is slow and the some of the crowd there can be annoying. But overall it is the best on the North Cliff in Varkala.

100% veggie food; the food was absolutely amazing; fresh & great flavours & choices. No alcohol -which is cool as you can go just focus on food & go have a Kingfisher somewhere else afterwards. Feast for two cost approx £6!!!! Went here twice over 1 week. Love it & would highly recommend. I was in Varkala for 8 days... More

Location awful, right at the helipad on the cliff but service very poor. Food is okay. Fellow seems to be taking advantage of being the only veg restaurant around. Needs a competition nearby to improve!!

The food was really tasty and portions were great but the service was awful. Despite being nearly the only diners there, it took all our efforts to firstly get someones attention and then get them to actually provide what we asked for. Shame as it put us off going back.

Had breakfast a couple of times. Decent place for vegetarian food. Located right at the beginning of the cliff (helipad).

This place may look basic and the table cloths could use a clean but in the 3 weeks I have been in Varkal I can say this by far my favourite place to eat. The Indian food here is the best on the cliff as Oottupura is not focused on having a menu 300 items covering every cuisine possible. The... More

I stopped by this place to have a quick dinner around 9.30pm. I was one of the last customers at 10pm and after paying the bill I was asked by the waiter not to come again! When I asked why, I was answered that it was because I came too late. I wasn't asked not to come back as late,... More

We have been coming here as our main breakfast and dinner restaurant for over ten years on holidays. If anything their Indian food is even better than previous years. Dosas and Kerala parathas are fantastic. They make the best Kerala coffee on the north cliff...no frothy European machine nonsense. Their food is Indian food made for Indian tastes and we... More

I stayed in Varkala for 6 nights and are here frequently. The masala dosa is very good especially in comparison to other ones I have tasted. Tomato utthappam is very good as well! I enjoyed my Indian breakfasts there very much. For dinner, I had baingan bharta (aubergine/eggplant) with Kerala paratha and tomato rice and all of it was delicious.... More
