Description: Karavalli an iconic restaurant located at Vivanta Bengaluru Residency Road. Since inception in 1990, Karavalli has grown to be an institution when it comes to South west coast flavours. Modelled on a traditional Mangalorean bungalow, and surrounded by lush tamarind trees, the restaurant is inspired by the architecture of coastal South India. Ingredients from the coast, such as cloves, cinnamon, pepper, home grown chillies and only the freshest vegetables and finest meats make it to the menu. The chef and team have painstakingly preserved India’s most refined culinary traditions from our rich heritage by restoring age old recipes, decades of researching meeting with locals and recreating forgotten flavours of a glorious bygone era.

We had a great experience at Karavalli. Great food and beautiful ambience. Even our servers Kiron Bhoopati and Vinita Uday were perfectly polite and helped maintain the proper hygiene and social distancing standards. Overall a great experience would recommend to all!

Had an amazing outdoor lunch at Karavalli during COVID, it felt very safe - the food was delicious and ambience was amazing. Do ask for Vinoth, Uday and Kiran when you visit to get the best service! We had the fish in banana leaf, kori gassi and vegetable stew - really enjoyed all of them :)

It's amazing! The services are awesome. It was my b'day and Vinoth, Uday and Boopathi really made it worth through their amazing sea food recommendation and a little celebration at the end. I am definitely coming here again :)
