Kipling Cafe was one of those names that I frequently saw in Zomato as well as in other social networking sites. After sensing all the positive vibe it received I was eager to try this place out. A boring saturday evening with a friend which started as a long drive down the ECR ended with a trip to Kipling Cafe.... More

A bit expensive and the service slow, however if you are there for... More

We had a bit of a problem reaching Kiplings but, once we reached, we feltit was worth the trouble getting there. The place is brilliantly located close to the sea where you sit in little eco friendly huts with the cool breeze creating a relaxed atmosphere. The menu, with Continental, Indian, Italian and Thai is extensive and they serve beef... More

We have been to Kipling a number of times in the past and we are regularly impressed by the setting, ambience and food. However, on this occasion we actually left before any food was even served. Having decided to treat my mother for Mothers Day we booked in advance to eat in the Italian part of the restaurant, Firenze. First... More

As other reviewers have said, the service tends to be quite slow, but if you are not in a hurry it's great! They have 3 menus - Indian, Asian, and Italian. We only eaten the Indian food and... More
