Kovala, Kerala, India

Outdoor vegetarian restaurant. Waiters speak English and will assist vegans as most of the menu has dairy. Thalis are served for lunch. Ask for 'special tea' for beer served in a teapot. 200Rs will get you well fed. Directions: Located in the coconut grove behind the shops, on Lighthouse Beach. Look for signs. Also sell vegetarian recipes book for 300Rps.

Simple Indian - Edit

I ordered a vegetarian dish from here and asked the staff to make it vegan. He was happy to make some adjustments and made a beautiful cashew curry.

This is certainly not the place worth visiting. It is too expensive for a vegetarian dish and it is not a vegetarian restaurant.
Kovalam is not a place for vegetarians in Trivandrum. One has to go to proper Trivandrum and you can find many vegetarian only restaurants. A decent vegetarian meal (Tali) would cost just less than a quarter of the price quoted by this hotel ( Rs.50 to 100 means less than $2). One can try Aruna (near VJT hall, Palayam, MG Road), Anand Bhavan in front of the secretariat ( please dont go there between 10 AM to 1 PM because you may get hurt by hooligans coming there for strikes and throwing stones recklessly at everyone around and police using teargas cannons). After 1 PM the rowdies will go home for lunch and you may try this hotel. There is one Ashok Bhavan opposite to Ayurveda college on M.G. Road. There is another one (Arulakam) at overbridge. All these hotels serve only vegetarian dishes.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Too expensive, Bad place for vegetarians, Serves non vegetarian items

Going from strength to strength - Edit

Menu is still huge, many pages long, consisting of very interesting local specialities as well as a few continental dishes. They are even more adept at catering for vegans as they will cook with oil instead of ghee upon request. They will also make your dishes properly spicy hot upon request. Great breakfasts, too.

Pros: Huge menu, vegan friendly, Relaxed

Cons: Hidden down alley
