A simple but good restaurant right on the beach. Good views from first floor and terrace. Serves beer and variety of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is not so great but ok. Staff is helpful and courteous.

Really enjoyed the food here, it was well cooked and really tasty. However, it took nearly an hour to get our order, which wouldn't normally be a problem in a busy restaurant, but we were the only people there at the time. That being said, the food was worth the wait. I would certainly go again

Just had a soup and a fruit salad. Fruit salad- too much pineapple.. Comparing the two, the fruit salad had more taste than the soup.

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
