This is very hunky-funky type themed. Very simple but different. Good food indeed and nice staff. Recommended for European.

This cafe is hidden on the roof-top in a street full of houses, so you may need to ask for directions and then climb up three flights of stairs but I would say it's worth the effort. We went for breakfast soon after their opening time so they weren't completely prepared, the chairs were still being dusted. We didn't really... More

The salads and fruit juices were very good! The menu had different choices of quiches, pies, pasta and etc... but our dishes seemed cooked a while ago and just warmed up, did not taste fresh. If you go, stick with what is fresh.

Really Good atmosphere. Quiet, peaceful restaurant in Pondicherry. Interesting food. Very friendly staff. Quite near all the action of the town, but still peaceful.

I just came from the New Banana Café, I was eager to try it. I had an orange pancake and lime ginger soda. Not many people here so I was served very quickly. The food was great, and I felt very good after having it. Something that I appreciate much is that the staff give their best into providing quality... More

A very welcome break from spicy food. Good service on the roof terrace, French-based cuisine, Spanish music, and the calls of the muezzins from the nearby mosques. A fantastic escape.

This place was close to where we were staying and had good reviews so we decided to have an early dinner here. The place is nice and dimly lit. Lots of lamps and the shed makes it look like a relaxing backyard restaurant. It was manned by two guys who also I believe are the chefs. They were good as... More

Had read many good things about the New Banana Cafe & Restaurant and we decided to make a pit stop for dinner. We were promptly attended and contrary to the reviews about the service, we were served reasonably quickly. We were the only customers around as a group of few girls had checked finished when we stepped in. The options... More
