Absolutely gorgeous cuisine, view and staff.
It's my favourite place for dinner during 3 weeks of my vacation in Varkala.
Try one of "main course", traditional indian gravy or just naan and tea or lassi. Every food was significally better, than from other restaurants there. At last we choose SunRise as our "approoved for best dinner" place.

Located next to Kerala Bamboo House, Sunrise has a great view over the Arabian Sea (or maybe Lakshadweep Sea). In the evening you can see hundreds of fishing boats in the distance. So many in fact, it looks like land. We had breakfast, lunch and a dinner at Sunrise. The menu has an excellent variety of Indian and western items to satisfy every palate. Most of the waiters speak only a modest amount of English, so make sure they repeat your order. Sunrise has a very relaxing atmosphere, and the wifi worked consistently.
Sunrise will also deliver to your cottage at Kerala Bamboo House (or you can carry your own food if you'd like to dine on your own porch).

We tried a range of restaurants along the cliff in Varkala and always ended up coming back to sunrise. The food is by far the best.

We had som amazing fish, tandoori butter fish and fish wrapped in a banana leaf and each time was cooked beautifully with great flavours. The vegetarian Kerlan spicy curry was delicious along with their naan bread which at places was extremely floury but here it was perfect.

Staff were very accommodating and changed anything we asked on the menu to suit. Omelettes, banana curd and of course beautiful masala tea not filled with sugar as some places like to make it.

A definite must try!

We had done the booking over the phone. The fellow who took the booking was very polite gentle and co operative. He also tried to help us in getting a return cab early morning. Breakfast was not that good also the toast was cold and soft. Overall experience was very good.
