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!).

There is a lot on offer at this vegetarian place, North Indian, Keralian, some Chinese and European. They cook everything fresh and all the dishes have unique and authentic taste hence service can be slow but when one is Varkala overlooking the cliffs, breathing the fresh sea breeze...what's the rush!

Experience was pretty bad. Food was below average and delivery was pretty slow. Half the items in the menu were unavailable and the waiter didn't even know what the other half were. For instance I asked what's Shake 20 and the waiter didn't have a clue and said he will revert after asking the chefs. But he never returned and... More

Had both breakfast and lunch here, but simple foods as I'm trying to stay on budget and Varkala demands higher prices. Plain Dosa, 30rps, for breakfast as good as I've had I other locations throughout Kerala, a simple Cucumber and Mint salad for lunch, wonderfully cooling and 100rps. Others with me all enjoyed both meals as well. One complaint is... More

I can't say what happens at dinner time, since I went there for lunch and decided not to go again. Anything which was written on the menu wasn't available, so they brought me a veg meal that was already ready (as the waiter said) that was cold and not yummy at all. The staff was rude and lazy, annoyed by... More
