We decided to try a few restaurants in kovalam whilst staying at Niraamaya based on tripadvisor! Sanjeevini was well worth the rickshaw ride as I had the best fish in banana leaf of my trip! Amazing flavours with a different fish used that was really lovely - butter fish? and really lovely subtle flavours in the sauce different to the... More

We came off season so the restaurant was quiet and after a long windy walk down a quiet lane we found this restaurant. A friendly waiter greeted us half way and showed us the fresh daily catch and recommend a good variety of dishes from mild to spicy. Fresh tandoori naans and coconut rice accompanied the dishes. I especially enjoyed... More

A short walk from the main resort but well worth it. The owner was very helpful when we were considering what to have and how much to order. Visited on two occasions and each time the fish dishes we ordered were excellent. Very reasonably priced compared to others in the area.

Having read all the good reviews of Sanjeevini, we decided we should pay a visit and we weren't disappointed. The owner showed us the menu but seeing us struggling to choose after several minutes, asked us what we like and made suggestions. My fish cooked in a banana leaf was excellent and the mixed chicken kebab was fantastic too. He... More

A short walk away from the main road however well-known enough that any local will be able to guide you to it. Once you arrive, you are blessed with a lovely view of the beach and ocean. Staff and manager are great. Food is great, one of the best curries in kovalam made on request to your preferred spiciness.

We struggled to find this restaurant as our tuk tuk driver brought us to the back entrance. We eventually found it after walking through a few residences. Delicious food that hits the mark. Reasonably priced. Will definitely return.

Given the prospect of a mediocre and expensive meal in the hotel, we decided to venture outside and are glad that we did. A really warm welcome greeted us and a huge meal followed for around 1000 Rupees. Best curry we had during the whole of our tour of Kerala.

Visited just the once during our stay in Kovalam, purely upon recommendation by other contributors, really a delight well worth the tuck tuk journey along very narrow streets & bumpy terrain, Shivan made recommendations for us & it was fantastic food, even the rice& nans were noteworthy,if we had more time we would have visited again.
