We had pre-booked the party menu to be served in one of their individual rooms for a group. The service was great and they definitely came across as wanting us to enjoy our meal and the atmosphere. The food was served quickly and was good. All in all, a very pleasant meal and experience.

The restaurant gave a very good first impression. The service was good (apart from circumstances noted below) and the atmosphere and decor pleasant in an interesting, well-converted old building. The food was also tasty. The problem was that my friend and I both ordered king prawn dishes, and the advertised prawns were not actually prawns! The dishes both contained a... More

My partner had a prawn dish and I had a lamb dish....ARE YOU READY? In all our years of eating Indian cuisine we have never had better food then this? The service... More

We arrived at Pondicherry expecting to have a pleasant meal and a good meal. The signs were promising, with the restaurant having relatively good ambiance. The food however is dismal which tainted the whole experience....where to start.... - Diet Coke that was served in a glass, no doubt decanted from a large bottle - which was served flat. - All...

This restaurant was recommended to us and I must say its one of the nicest indian restaurants I have visited, the actual building is the old police station/court house from the late 1800's - early 1900's. The decor was very nice and the service was excellent. Overall it was a bit more pricey than what we would usually pay but... More

What a setting converted court and police station, with the cells made into a feature. Service was excellent, without being over the top. We were bought a complimentary drink, food was excellent great value well worth a little extra. Busy Saturday night but not too noisy and we were not hurried. Good portions of very tasty food well recommended

We have wanted to visit here for a long time and finally made it. Booking is essential I would say but you never know you might get lucky if you drop in. The restaurant is set in the old police station and retains many of the original features. The service is good but it's the food that excels. We ordered... More

We visited on 1/4/17 with friends and had an excellent evening. We were the first to arrive so we were seated in the lounge to wait for our friends, and was served drinks which we took to our table. The menu was varied and with plenty of chefs specials as well as the traditional Indian restaurant dishes. I ordered the... More
