I had the Bindhi Fry and Mushroom Soup. Both were very good. Friendly service and good value. A simple but very good place for Indian vegetarian food at reasonable price on Varkala Cliff.

Apart from the table cloths everything was excellent - tasty fresh food, lovely staff (helped advise on what to try and even offered to show us how to cook chapattis the next morning!). When the sun goes down you can watch the bats in the trees in above your table :)

This place has everything you could want from a Varkala restaurant, the menu is completely veg & could be made vegan if you ask. Portions are huge, rice and food is made with so many fresh seasonings & herbs. Fresh coconut in many dishes make them amazing! Try the keralan breakfast (Upumavu & rice Puttu) different but SO delicious! Cheaper... More

The service was fine, the location is very nice and pleasant. The food was fresh, yet the taste was only 'ok' (average).

Situated next to Helipad beach, this is run by Indians but the food is good and the price is affordable.

It may not have complete views of the beach/sea, however the quality of the Indian vegetarian food and service outperforms this. We have had breakfast and dinner twice here - all meals very reasonably priced. Clean tables with magical lanterns at night. Thoroughly recommend if you don't want a tourist trap. No hard sell on the doorstep - just waiters... More

We ate here several times during our ten day stay in Varkala. The food was always beautiful and fresh and the Kerala Thali was a stand out. The atmosphere is fresh and relaxed and the prices are less expensive than most other places. Wish I could have eaten here more.

We had various dishes which were all yummy and great value. The service is slower here but expected as it is run by Indians unlike a lot of the restaurants in Varkala (seeing as it is India it is nice to support the natives!).
