Many people have raved over this restaurant and I just wanted to confirm our experience. Four of us were staying at the Taj and ventured out beyond their wonderful walls to have a meal here. We were not disappointed. The food was fresh and delicious and the waiter went out of his way to get us some wine when they... More

I was staying in a nearby hotel for work and came to this restaurant with various colleagues a number of times over 3 weeks. Everyone who ate there had nothing but good things to say about the food and Saj the waiter was extremely helpful and genuinely friendly. I cannot recommend it enough and thanks to Saj and the others... More

The 3rd Rock is still our favourite beachside restaurant in Kovalam. The food is great and we are always so well looked after by Saaj. It is always a pleasure to go and eat there at lunchtime or in the evening.

This restaurant is great value for money. We were warmly greeted by Saj, who was an excellent host and who looked after us very well. We watched the sun go down whilst sipping an ice cold Kingfisher, the waves breaking just below our feet. The food we ate on the two occasions we visited was the best we have eaten... More

This restaurant has some tough competition in the Samudra beach area and for us tops the others. The location, service, but above all the quality food made this our No1. From soup, prawns or chicken it all has depth to the flavour that makes it a place to re-visit.

I have to put in a second review as have just returned from our second year at this nice restaurant where the food is as still 1st class. Saj,Dilip(the smilie man) and all the staff make this lovely little restaurant one of the best on samurdra beach. Give this restaurant a try you won't be disappointed.

My partner and I ate here last night after reading the reviews on trip advisor and also looking for somewhere to watch the premiership football. Great place and didn't disappoint, we watched the footy in the bar then moved to a table on the sea wall for our meal. Service was great and food even better, we had two chicken... More

I can not praise the food & service from Saj enough. I am a fussy veggie and I had no complaints at all which is unusual for me. Saj tested us with the chili as we like our food hot. It was just prefect every day we had lunch here. The price was amazing my curry was £1.30 which I... More
