After touring all the beach side restaurants and menus, avoiding the many invitations to dine, we selected the Tandoor. It was upstairs with a first floor level overlooking the sea. I asked for and got real Kerala food, I specifically asked for food as cooked at home by the Chef and not a tourist bland version. The meal was excellent... More

Ambition to be a fine Indian restaurant, but it is more affordable to eat on a regular Indian restaurant. They have free wifi but it did not work when we were there.

Our custom is to visit a different restaurant each evening to try as wide a variety as possible. However we liked the Tandoor so much we went three times in our 11 night stay! The food was brilliant and we found that one portion of rice and three vegetarian dishes made a delicious and substantial meal. We thoroughly recommend this... More

When I pointed out that the white tablecloth was dirty i was imformed that it was a stain that would not come out maybe get it laundered I suggested ! The waiter started to defend the indefensible and then became progressively rude . The tandoor fish was good but the naan very average . Will not hurry back

The restaurant is upstairs, therefore protecting you from the army of people trying to sell you their tat while dining. A good menu and reasonable priced, but service was very slow with drinks taking around 25 mins to arrive, and the food almost an hour. When it did arrive, it was very good.

Our lunch at this place was one of the best meals we had in India. Truly delicious Indian food, great prices and excellent service. Location straight on the beach is good; we sat on the balcony upstairs and it was lovely.

This restaurant was very quiet but can't understand why. The food was excellent. Chicken tikka was delicious. People just go on busiest place but sometimes good not to follow the crowds. Staff were very attentive and helpful.
