This place is nice and has some good vegetarian dishes, momos no doubt were good except the potato cheese momos, overall vegetarians can go and have a descent food at this place.

I had a delicious meal here during my stay in Varkala, I liked it so much that I ordered far too much and felt uncomfortably full until the next day but it was really good! I recommend the vegetable or spinach momos which are the best momos I have ever had and the eggplant masala which was perfectly cooked.

Had dinner. The service was late, maybe manpower shortage. Momos were good. Tandoori items okay. But the noodles weren't good. Queen desert was good.

Momos and clear soup was great, so were the grilled prawns. Service is great with extremely friendly and amenable staff. Walked downstairs to wash hands and caught a glimpse of the kitchen, might not have eaten there if I had seen the state of affairs below.

For best momo or Tibetan cuisines on the cliff a visit to Tibetan Kitchen is must. Service is slow but with their innocent smiles the servers will win over your heart.

Momos are highly recommended and staff was really friendly! The patty for the veggie burgers were yummy but the bun was a little stale. All in all, we will definitely return for future meals.
