We had breakfast all ten mornings at Tibet Kitchen. Good food, and drinks. We ordered black tea, for two, in a teapot, and cold milk. Papaya fruit salad with yoghurt (curd, they call it) is great! And the best view over the beach, together with a nice breeze. Friendly staff!

Great and very tasty food. Cooking slow and sometimes you need to wait more then in another places, but the food worth it.

We had a delicious meal here. Momos with veg and cheese to start and chapatti wrap filled with spinach and mushroom. Delicious

The service at the restaurant was quick & efficient. The food was really fresh & very tasty. Their Thukpa & Momo's in particular were sublime. I love to eat meat/fish & my wife is a vegetarian... but the menu has something to please everyone! I would definitely recommend :)

This was our first evening out at Varkala. And choose to eat at the Tibetan kitchen. I had the local dish fish in banana leaf too spicey for my taste. My husband had the deep fried calamari. Which he really enjoyed. We had Greek salad humos and pitta bread cheese garlic nan. Everything else was nice.

We chose this place because of the amazing view and the food didn't let us down either. We had vegetarian options and they were both delicious. Fast and friendly service.

Yes, they CAN prepare seafood and fish! You can choose whatever you like and hustle a good price if you try:) Especially good for sharing with friends/family but make sure to choose a big table. The serving was a bit clumsy (a lot of plates and no space). Kerala style or garlic-butter, choose anything you like and won't be disappointed.... More

The food is nice but the place is quite dirty and in need of a big facelift. Decoration is really quite bad. The staff are friendly though.
