This restaurant like most around Varkala cliff offers multiple options for the cuisine. Tried chicken momos which were fresh and served with soupy dip, but the portion was huge for price. 10 momos for 180! View is superb, jus overlooks the Varkala beach!

One of my favourite places to head to along varkala cliff. The location has the most stunning view all along to the south side of the cliff. Staff are warm, welcoming, efficient and provide gentle hospitality. Food is produced to a high standard and delicious too... its a great place to pass the time. I highly recommend it to anyone...

Sunrise was one of my favourite restaurants when I visited Varkala. I specifically recommend to try the fresh fish served for dinner, it was absolutelyu delicious. Also the indian dishes where of very high quality. The staff is very helpful and serviceminded. I strongly recommend everyone to try out Sunrise restaurant.

The best veg Momos in town - Definitely give this place a try! The top floor offers a cool breeze perfect for a long evening after a day on the beach. The music could do with a refresh at times though!
