Fantastic place to eat. Food was delightful so was the host 'Shiva'. Just go there and 'Shiva' will do the rest. A wonderful chat and scrumptious food will make your day. A must must visit when you are in Kovalam.

Tucked into the hill just above Samudra beach, this restaurant provides a wide choice of lovely fresh local dishes (try the Kingfish). The food was delicious, and we enjoyed a great chat with the hosts about everything and anything Keralan! A thoroughly lovely evening.

Last Thursday the restaurant opened for the first time this season, and although Shiva was not there the regular chef was, two of us ordered a chicken curry, and two ordered garlic chicken all was excellent. We look forward to our next meal there shortly.

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
