The juice shack/New kerala cafè is a good restaurant, aiming at catering more the healthy-veg community (which I hate), specializing itself in the juices. Yes they're good and 80 rupees is fine once, but it is quite the touristic spot and asking for that price in India, it's too much.

Had evening meal here and though there is nothing wrong with the place there is a lot better right on their doorstep . Food is ok and they serve beer , even if they insist on serving them in those awful stein type plastic vessels .

I remember this place for the dessert " Hello to the Queen ". But now, it's not a good place for this ! You can enjoy this place, for the serious waiters. The Indian food is good ( Tandoori ), same for the veg-burger ! They made a good drink also !

Had great meal again at the Kerala cafe. The problem we had was that we both over ate! The coconut rice is the best I've ever had (although a half portion is plenty unless you're sharing!), and the garlic nan was stupendous

We returned over and over again for the great food and the excellent service. After climbing the stairs from the beach, the staff greeted you with cold towels to cool down.

We ordered four vegetarian dishes and all were pathetic. It seemed that they have used some left over oil after cooking sea food.

Kerala cafe had been one of my favorite spots in the cliff for the past 3+ years. Last season, something happened to their food where it's not as good as before. But when they re-opened this year, the food quality is back to the level off what it was before, and perhaps even better. Their cheese nans are still the... More
