Most of the restaurants in Kanyakumari cater for South Indian vegetarian menus; you don’t have to go far to find one in this small seaside town.

Kanyakumari is a small seaside town where everything is only metres from each other. You don’t have to go far to find a restaurant in this place. However, being a pilgrimage town in South India, most of the restaurants in Kanyakumari cater for South Indian vegetarian meals. They also tend to be more suitable for the budget traveller as the meals are good value and decent while the ambiance and customer service is non-existent.

A large number of Kanyakumari restaurants are located on Main Road which is the commercial centre of town. Here you can find some decent Indian restaurants such as Hotel Triveni that specialise in good value South Indian vegetarian thalis, and Sangam Restaurant which caters for both North and South Indian cuisines. If you’re in this area, don’t miss British Bakery that cooks up some real sweet treats that will leave you wanting more.

If you have a craving for non-vegetarian, along with Sangam Restaurant mentioned above, try Hotel Seaview. Both have good non-vegetarian dishes including seafood delicacies.

If you’re looking for somewhere posh to dine, Hotel Seaview will be your best bet as they have an upmarket air-con restaurant with a multi-cuisine menu and smart waiters.
