“Amazing authentic Keralite food”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

It was off peak when I was in Varkala, but all I had to do was knock on her door and ask for a thali and about an hour later, the freshest and most delicious food would be waiting! She also makes amazing pancakes. Her son Shah is hilarious and will give you a ride home in his rickshaw if you're not staying nearby. Great family run place :)

“She is the best!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

We stayed at the Magnolia Guest House next door and were lucky enough to have lunch here most days. The food is absolutely delicious and made with the freshest ingredients. A gem in Varkala!

“This was Soul food!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Brothers and Sisters...I recently came home from Beatiful India and I dropped in to this restaurant pearl. I have been cooking food my entire life, travelled around the world and thus tasted many kitchen styles. Banana leaf is just what it says it is... Soul Kitchen. If you pass by Odayam beach in varkala you shouldn´t miss this pearl. Enjoy!
