We spent three days at Varanasi and once we... More

The food at Sunrise is absolutely better than anywhere else on the beach (especially the fresh fish, Indian food, breakfast, etc), but most importantly, the staff is incredibly warm and generous. Everybody was always welcoming and excited to see us, and often would join us for a few minutes if they had time. I can't wait to go back!

If you want to eat exceptional well for a decent price, this is the place to go. We spent X-Mas evening here and had a great time with very good food. We live in Berlin, Germany and have no comparable restaurant in all of Berlin. Enjoy!

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!
