Brilliant beach shack.

It does take some finding but having found it you will keep going back. Shiva is a great host, his English is perfect he knows his menu and will ensure that you get the right meal for you.

Very welcoming and nice view, although lots of steps to get there. Food is very good and cheaper than others around.

We've been eating here for many years and it's always a delight. The food is always of a high standard and the waiter Shiva is highly knowledgable as he is a tour guide in North India during the rest of the year. He also speaks 8 languages. There is also free wi fi during the peak season.

The restaurant is tucked away uphill from the beach, about 5 minutes walk from the UDS hotel where we were staying. We ate here several times during our stay and the food was always excellent. The restaurant has a rustic feel to it with a sand floor and views over the beach.

This is a superb food joint (can't call a restaurent) because it's a beach side shaded facility on the sand with some tables and chairs. I saw it ranked #1 on trip advisor and decided to try. I searched it on Google map and found that there is no motorable road to this place. So we have to park our... More

Sanjeervini is simply the best in the area. Shiva still manages to be a good host and organizes everything like clockwork, he has a remarkable memory for faces and preferences. The food is extremely tasty and well presented, dishes can be adapted to suit your taste, mild or more spicy. Keep up the good work Shiva.

Like another contributor I fail to see how this is ranked so highly. It is very hard to get to for a start!! The food though well prepared lacks flavour-- and portions are quite small. It seems that it is geared more to the Brits. There were no locals in the restaurant other than staff( friendly staff)-- as with anywhere... More
