Very expensive and cheats above that. Charging service charges over and above GST. Crooks!! Rotis and parathas ordered came about half an hour later and were the worst ones I ever had during my pondicherry stay. All dishes are expensive and not worth their steep...More

This is a beautiful location, the food is exceptional in terms of flavour, presentation and the options available. There was good wine on offer. Sadly the staff do not seem happy. There is clearly some serious management failure that prevents the waiters raising a smile.

Located on Suffren st, this hotel/restaurant is beautifully maintained. We went for lunch but the place missed the wow factor. They have a full service bar and prompt service. Worth visiting for a quiet meal. Overall 3.5 stars.

We tried the fish with spaghetti and "Mr and Mrs Smith", which is vegetarian pasta. Both were average, nothing to rage about. Portion size was adequate. The vegetarian menu is mostly Indian and standard. The prices are on a higher side. A/C sitting is in...More

This place apparently has very good Indian food, but not much other options for vegetarians. We had a pasta which was good. Perfect place to have drinks and lounge. Be sure to make prior appointments else you might be disappointed.
