Out-of-this-world flavours! While traveling in Kerala one definitely gets plenty of chance to eat some awesomely yummy South Indian food, but this is a nice change with some excellent North Indian veg. We had chana masala, paneer jafrani/zafrani, raita, and pakoda to start. All was...awesome, as was the service!More

On 13th Feb'19, myself with my hubby got to have lunch at this restaurant. We have ordered for Jeera rice with Dhal fry and Aloo Sabji. Taste was really good, but Quantity seems to be very less and prices were also a bit exorbitant. Average...restaurant to have veg food..More

This was a refreshing change from the high priced, very busy places on the sea wall by the beach. Pure veggie. What a treat! Simple , tasty food cooked to order. It's not smart but this is India and a little oasis. The restaurant is...on the first floor with side views to the sea and open to the air. Unpretentious and extremely good value. Just about 50 metres from the beach. Very pleasant staff too. If you're fed up with the hard sell by the beach, come here for simple, good food.More

The restaurant is spacious. Jain options are available and this is one of the very few Pure Veg restaurants in Kovalam. So we had no other options. The service here is very poor. Once you place your order then it takes eternity to reach your...table. Sometimes the waiters just forget about your order. Food taste is also not that good.More

After several days of touts trying to tempt us in to restaurants specializing in fish, along the beach, this was a happy find, and only a couple of minutes walk from the Samudra. We ate here twice and were pleased with everything.

Not a pleasant experience at this restaurant we visited. It looks a clean, newly refurbished and attractive from the outside. Unfortunately everything else that followed was disappointing. Following reviews read we tried this. It seems fine for locals mainly. The staff seemed very disorganised and...debating between them which table to serve next!! Service was poor. Food was all vegetarian South Indian and average.More

First thing it's a very good vegetarian hotel But the price compare to any other hotel in Kerala it's very high especially it is not even air condition they don't even accept any card payment Only cash payment ( practice to avoid paying GST) No...drinking water provider You are forced to buy packed bottles Please note it's illegal not to give free clean water in India Every restaurant in India are required to give free water no matter what class or standard they belong Hope you change or someone is going to complaint to the authorityMore

Dropby this restaurant to enjoy the Punjabi styled meal, if you are really bored eating sourthern food of India; This one could be a break through. Expecting authentic food here would be mistake but yes in deed is stomach feeling. The service standards needs to...be improved. The ambience and furniture also needs a little revamp. (Not recommeded for tourist with kids, lots of table has damaged glass top results in injury; Beware)More
