Small vegetarian family restaurant, good and friendly service, outdoor sitting area. Excellent vegetarian Indian food, quite cheap, like Dhal and Channa Massala for example, very good value for money...

Fantastic place for veg food ! Try their puttu for breakfast - amazing ! They also have great thalis in season, and the owner is so nice. Try their rooms too (Jicky rooms) which are in a very quiet location and very close to helipad.
The service is a little slow, but it is worth waiting. It is a must !

It's not the first time I've eaten at this unpretensious Varkala restaurant, and it won't be the last. According to one reviewer the service is a little slow, but this is a beach area and what's the hurry? What you get is well prepared food that's fresh and tasty. Another reviewer mentioned that though vegetarian it's not vegan. They must have missed the part of the menu that clearly states that if you are vegan to let them know.

If you are looking for well prepared Kerala dishes with an authentic flavour you can't go wrong. If your budget is tight, this is also the place to eat as nothing on the menu is in the least overpriced. Best of all, you can watch the local rickshaw drivers overcharging tourists from the comfort of your shady seat. Be advised though that if you want a fresh tasty masala dosa, arrive early. Once they're gone they are gone until the next morning,

Went here for lunch once. Food is mainly Indian and all vegetarian (not vegan). We tried 2 not very spicy dishes; malai kofta and paneer in cashewnut sauce. After a looong waiting we finally got our food; not the worst we have had during our 3 months in India but not the best either. Its pretty cheap though (compared with other Varkala restaurants that are more western)

Being a non veggie I didn’t expect to be very excited by the menu here but I was very surprised that the menu was as large as it was. Even more pleasantly surprised by the fact that the dishes we ordered all looked different and tasted very different. Despite an exceptionally long power cut whilst we were there the kitchen kept going and served an entire restaurant by candle light.
