Restaurant, as it is just next to the beach, there is a beautiful view of Seha and beach full of fisher boats. The tablet are not top for hygiene but the seafood is delicious: we ate shrimp prepared with butter, fried potatoes, spicy calamar and...a big fish in the middle with kingfisher Indian beer of 650 ml… As we arrived at 16h on Sunday, it was not crowded. Also as we tried in winter time ( around 20 oC without humidity), the weather was wonderful to eat outside. Finally it was a pleasant day with delicious food with friends. We brought okur doğ bichon frıse with us and had the lunch without difficulty, however we had a back pack special for the small dogs.. You can bring your fork and knife, some cartoon glasses and wet towel if you pay attention a lot for hygiene. You can choose everything you eat inside. If you know how to do , you can negotiate also.More

The restaurant is located right on the shore - which gives you the perfect natural ambience - with the constant rumbling of waves as a light music. Try out the restaurant with a free mind to enjoy the ambience and the food - which of...course is commendable. There are various choices of fish - which you can handpick to be served to you. Don't miss out to see the live lobster tank and choose a fleshy one to end up in your plate.More

I just found this restaurant out of the blue, and after the first shrimp coconut curry from Kerala, I decided it will be my spot for lunch and dinner during my stay. I had the crab curry the deep fried fish and at last the...butter and garlic Trevally fish. Delicious, healthy, tasteful, attentive service, on the beach looking at the fishermen going out at sea.

This place on the beach, right next to Sri Harul's Guest House, is open for lunch and dinner, and has great sea food as well as South Indian curries and rice. They will also pack your food to carry to your hotel room and have...it. The rating of 4, instead of a 5, is because of the over-salty Butter-Garlic Crab they served for dinner on our first night at Mahabalipuram.More

We thought it's a good restaurant given its high ratings on TripAdvisor, but were hopelessly let down by the staff, food, service and ambience. Staff were overworked I felt since it was the lunch time when we went there, but weren't even asked if we...wanted to sit or not. Once we found some table (i dont why they keep tables on the way to service route in the first place!?) which obviously hadn't the best seats in the house, we werent asked about the order for about 10 minutes or so..mind you the waiters weren't busy! They were just looking at others eating. Then we finally ordered! Food came after 30mins! And the food wasn't great too though, it was the same old bland taste which you get in any other normal restaurant..which isn't expected from the place that got the travellers choice awards. All this just coz we werent tamilians! Parking is another hassle. Don't take your cars there! It's a 10ft wide road that's it! And they try to cram in innovas and what not in that poor stretch of a road. And all this in the hot burning sun, will surely get your blood boiling and head exploding. All in all! JUST DONT GO THERE!More

This place good only for its location right next to the sea. Very indifferent treatment for tamilians and non-tamilians. Be ready to wait for a life time before your order comes to your table if your are non-tamilian!. Food is average. It's just an over-hyped...restaurant.More

Would recommend this place for people who want to taste awesome seafood especially lobster, tiger prawns, red snapper fish and many more.. Ambience may not be great but the hospitality of the staff is very good.

Food is really good and that's why I see people flocking towards this hotel. I can see beers are served along with food. When you do that and also in a small place, hygiene and cleanliness takes a back seat. I couldn't enjoy my food...even though it seems to be great.. I don't think I will go againMore

Fresh fish, great service and sea views. Muthu is a great host and made food recommendations that were mouth watering. This is the best seafood restaurant in Mahabs and we will be sure to return.
