We ate here about ten years ago the first time and the setting is still spectacular on a hill the food is also good... More

For authentic Indian food, served overlooking the Sea, this is the place. The Food, Service and Price are all excellent. Don't expect a 5* facilities, but you will get some of the best food in the area.

We had all our meals here as the food at KTDC was quite bad. The food was tasty but later when we walked around the Hawa beach and the lighthouse beach, discovered that the food was extremely expensive here. The service too was very delayed. But nevertheless it did help that it was right next to KTDC and also offered... More

We visited this restaurant as a result of printing off our TripAdvisor list to go on holiday to Kerala. During our stay, we visited many of the top restaurants. These were Sanjeevini, 3rd Rock, Oyster and Curry Leaf. We will post reports on all of them. In general, we agreed with all of the previous reviews placing them in the... More

We had tandoori tiger prawns, butter chicken and chicken stir fry all of which had a wonderful flavour. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Kovalam but it... More

Sajeevini's is a little gem, fantastic food and great service, Shiva has everything running like clockwork, he remembers all his customer's likes and dislikes, and is always happy to suggest something for you. Shiva speaks several languages and has no trouble conversing with all his customers. It does take some finding but once you have you will go back again... More

We had a simple but tasty meal here. Sheeva the waiter/manager is very friendly and interesting to chat to. We were staying at the Taj down the road and we were also walked part of the way home by a young lad with a torch which was a nice touch at night.
