Loved this place, we ate here everyday for our 11 days at Gokarna. Addicted to their Masala Dosas, tried other places, but they have the best. The pineapple juice is to die for. North Indian food not as good as the South Indian food. My son was still addicted to western food and then he was won over by Dal,... More

Please do not visit if you are true Indian. You will get same treatment as that of cats and dogs.. 1. Owners or counter people are extremely RUDE.... You will feel insulted, take it from me... 2. They are abnormally polite (on the knees) with foreigners.. 3. You won't get tea or coffee ALONE... They may serve if your order... More

Orders a massala dosa. Really bad. No hoor massala and very little as well. To top that, the dosa itself was fluffy and way too thick. It resembled a failed pancake. The sambar was too watery and in the off chance you just would like some more sambar, expect to pay extra.

Has the old classic charm, yummy food and affordable price. I have tried masala dosa and poori. Next time would like to try other cuisine. They are supportive of customers even with the demonetization issue which is currently happening in India.

This restaurent though small seems to be very popular with tourists and local population at Gokarna. They offer fresh tasty South Indian snacks. Service is fast and efficient. Though food is tasty, the ambience inside and particularly outside the restaurent is not nice.

Located right next to the Gokarna beach this place has a lot on the menu. The ambience is nothing much to speak about but the kitchen whips up some tasty fare. Their fresh fruit juices and snacks are good. A must visit for their veg thali if ur in Gokarna during lunch time.

Don't go by the looks! This is the best hotel in Gokarna :-) Thinking of this place, it makes me salivate! It had a mix of Indian, continental, Italian, Chinese, et. al.. We enjoyed every part of it! So so so glad, we chose this over anything else!

My friend googled out Prema when we were in Kudle beach and decided to check it out before we bade goodbye to Gokarna. It is a small old looking shop that might trick you into believing that it might serve good food. But looks can be deceiving. Enter and there are a plethora of options to choose from. From nutella...
