“Good place for sunset drinks”
Review of Sunset Restaurant

Sunset Restaurant
Ranked #47 of 87 Restaurants in Varkala
Cuisines: Indian
Description: Sunset did the best prawns in Varkala, be warned food is cooked fresh to order so service can be a little on the slow side we saw grumpy guests complaining they hadn’t had their food which we thought was unreasonable given they were getting exceptionally fresh food cooked to their requirements in a packed restaurant. We ate here a couple of times thoroughly enjoyed the food and thought the price very reasonable.

Reviewed 7 January 2014

We went here to watch the sunset, as the name of the bar suggests, and had nice cold beers and cocktails.

“Served me cold food”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

This was a very unfortunate experience. We arrived and ordered some drinks and a chicken tikka . The mango lassi was fab. it seemed as though 3 separate tables were complaining: Table 1 had there orders completely screwed up. Table 2 got charged for another tables food. Table 3 got served ice cream even though she hadnt ordered any. I eventually got my chicken tikka which was completely cold and it dawned on me that this was the chicken tikka that had been given to Table 1 about 20 minutes prior. I think if the food would have been hot at least it would have been a better experience. They also play trance music which is aggravating when you are eating.

Another nice spot. Great staff and service. Good selection of seafood - but do haggle.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 17 November 2011

Had a drink here in the afternoon and liked it so much we came back in the evening for dinner. The fresh fish was outstanding particularly my wife's which was cooked in a banana leaf with a coconut masala. Service was efficient and friendly and the meal was reasonably priced. While we were eating there was a thunderstorm and it started to rain very heavily. As we had a 25 minute walk to our hotel we had to wait but after a while one of the waiters offered to get a tuktuk wich were parked about 10 minutes away and ran all the way there in the pouring rain to get one for us. Great service!!
