This is a fantastic place to eat and while staying in KTDC Samudra, this is just a cool 5 min walk in the shade. Food was excellent and serving time quite reasonable. The most amazing part is the extremely hospitable Shiva, restaurant in charge. He has been around since my last trip 4 years back. There were a lot of... More

Visit the restaurant for fantastic food, Shiva will try to prepare anything you ask for, and very well he does it too, usually quite a long wait as its prepared fresh, but put your order in during the day and the wait time will be much less in the evening. It can get very busy so we tend to ask... More

Great sea view restaurant with excellent tandoori, efficient staff and open air feel. Mint chicken was cooked to perfection. It’s beachfront with no direct vehicle access. Best option is to take the cliff top path next to KTDC Samudra. When you reach the back entrance to KTDC, follow the path to the left which leads up a rocky escarpment to... More

We turned up at Sanjeevini restaurant last week and had the feeling that this couldn't be the place that everyone was raving about. We were the only people there and initially didn't fill us with too much confidence. However, after looking through the menu and deciding to give it a try the food was absolutely excellent. We had 4 different... More

After having read various reviews of this restaurant we eventually came across it walking along the beach about 400metres from the Mosque. After negotiating the climb and walking into the restaurant we were presented by a number of staff (it was about 10am). One of these staff members who looked rather dirty and dishevelled was smoking the last of a... More

We ate at Sanjeevini three times on our trip and the food was excellent every time. The mint kebab was fantastic, but so were the other dishes on the menu. Excellent friendly service, this restaurant is on the short list for serving up the best food we ate on our trip. The Samudra beach area is the place for great... More

A little off the beaten track if you go by tuk tuk, but easily found from the beach. Great value for money providing the lowest priced wine in Kovalam ( the owner claims).
