This is a roof top restaurant. Ambiance and views certainly are too good and even the owner serves you well. At night, it was too good to sit at the top with cold breeze passing across the terrace. However, food was quite average. We ordered a dish suggested by the owner only. It was not properly grilled and even cheese... More

Good food nice price. Pizza was good and masala Calamari is some of the best I have had. Pizza crust very very thin, that would be only complaint.

After reading about this place on the internet for good food in Mahabalipuram we used Google Maps to walk to this place from "Grande Bay" It was well worth the walk - we arrived early for lunch on a bright sunny January afternoon - we got a really nice table with a view of the Bay of Bengal and a...

We did not stay here, just visited the roof top restaurant. Its a charming little place with great food. The pepper chicken is definitely worth a try but the best part was the oven roasted thin crust pizza... really really a pleasant surprise!

Last night with friends had dinner at Sun Rise restaurant, Mahabs. It is a terrace joint. Not much of decor. Due to the prevailing climate, it was pleasant up there. The owner Prem Anand was all smiles in receiving us. He claimed it to be an outlet for more than thirty decades and he took the reigns from his father... More

We were a group of 4 adults and a child. Our stay was just OK. The rooms were not ready when we arrived and therefore we were given rooms which were perhaps locked for many weeks and were smelling of mould and dampness. We were given replacement rooms as soon as we complained, which were ok. Mahabalipuram in General has... More

I'm writing about the restaurant as I didn't stay here. My husband and I were near the city of Mamallapuram. After a visit to the 5 rathas, wanted to eat out before heading back to our resort. Its walkable from the shore-temple. The TA and Google reviews of Sunrise Restaurant were great and I was in the mood for pizzas.... More

We did not stay at the guest house, but were regular at the restaurant. After visiting few cafés, we came across Sunrise and loved it. It is not at the beach, but is on the top floor and therefore still provides sea view. It is very close to the Shore Temples. The food and beverages are also reasonably priced and... More

Sunrise is a nice little colorful guesthouse with a very confortable rooftop restaurant (because of its constant sea breeze) that serves good Indian food. Even though it's located near the busstand, the sea shore temple and other touristic attractions, its location in a little street with sea view makes it a relatively quiet oasis in the busy and touristy Mahabalipuram....
