Such a nice break from the indentikit menus in the restaurants on the clifftop. Service was very friendly and the food was really good. All this was very good value too (especially in the context of other nearby restaurant's prices). My only regret is that...More

Ate here regularly during our week in varkala, breakfasts are incredible, with a wide range of freshly cooked Indian dishes. Also had dinner here which was just as good, dishes are cooked while you wait and are piping hot when they arrive.
