On a lunch visit, it wasn't that crowded. Restaurant and the property overlooks the Vembanad Lake. Has indoor as well as outdoor seating. Local cuisine - Fish and Chicken preparations were outstanding. Service was quick and warm. It's a well laid out boutique property and...was quite charming to look at. A must visit to the restaurant if nearby.More

Nothing or rather nobody can beat the authentic taste of varied dishes prepared by the most talented young chef Mr.Pradosh at Karma Chakra resort's beautiful Waterfront restaurant. There are so many verities of dishes to choose from, be it North Indian or South Indian, both...Veg and Non-Veg. Generally any restaurant specialises in either one type but at Waterfront, the authentic taste of its original prepration of both types are amazingly well preserved. Since we are pure vegetarian, I had apprehension about the right taste if at all would be maintained for North Indian dishes, but to our delight and surprise, each and every Vegetarian items were just too good, as if prepared by a seasoned experienced chef of a 5 star resort. Mr.Pradosh the chief cook, has this special abilities to reproduce the authentic taste, keeping in mind the right texture, right blend and using the exact ingredients depending on the particular dish. We tried our hands on South Indian verity as well which, of course goes without saying, was lip smacking, finger licking especially the typical Kerala mixed vegetable curry called Alleppey curry where even raw mangoes are used. The entire team at the restaurant, Mr.Joys, Mr.Arun, Mr.Acchu etc are there to serve the guest with such warmth and pleasent gestures coupled with sweet smiles on their face that one would feel the homely atmosphere while being served. In short, by all means and standard the Waterfront restaurant is the best in entire Kumarakom. The quantity served is also not at all miserly measured or rather it's full fledged servings. Karma Chakra resort's greatest gift to Kumarakom is this restaurant one should never miss while visiting Kumarakom even though one might stay else where.More
