We visited this restaurant daily during our 4 day stay in Varkala and found the staff very efficient, helpful and friendly, especially Lakpa and Jiten, who ran back and forward to and from the kitchen continuously to provide fast service. Even though it is low season, these guys always seem to have lots of customers. The restaurant is clean and... More

We returned to Varkala and Abba after a two year absence, and really loved their food and drink again. There are a fair number of non-Indian options which can make a nice change, and as before, we really enjoyed their fresh and colourful salads. We also discovered their strawberry lassi, which we had to return and have again several times!... More

Quick service speaking excellent English, good cocktails, also serve beer. We had palak paneer, daal and prawn biryani - all excellent. Sea view, beautiful restaurant with lights and covered/uncovered. Good atmosphere, one of most full on the cliffs. Really recommend.

We have eaten here quite a few times and always been very happy. Really nice atmosphere overlooking the water. Food really great. Homemade bread for breakfast was yummy and the paneer tandori for dinner was equally lovely. Filled up our water bottles for free.

We tried this restaurant because of all the good reviews on TripAdvisor but were a bit disappointed.. The location is great, with some tables facing the sea. The staff is nice and really professional, and their cocktails seem great. Unfortunately, the food was not so good. The chicken kebab was dry although the homemade chips were great. The fried eggplants... More

The restaurant has a very nice view of the sea, perfect in all terms but the food served there was average. It can be better. I have tried three items to which all of them had an ordinary taste, nothing new or wow.
