Last minute decision to pop into Pondicherry for a birthday meal with my dad a couple of weeks ago. Rocked up at gone 8pm to discover they were still serving and could be seated without reservation. Menu isn't overcomplicated, not hundreds of options like most restaurants, so you know they're spending more time focusing on a few good meals and/or... More

This was one of two restaurants that had been suggested to us by a local (we are from out-of-county!) as an interesting building, serving genuine Pakistani food, with service second to none. The building is certainly different being the old Police Station. The main restaurant is upstairs in a large, high ceiling room which was warm and cosy if not... More

My partner and I ate at Pondicherry on Saturday night (15th March) and we had a delightful evening. The restaurant used to be an old Police Station and they've kept a lot of the original fixture and fittings - but with a modern twist. The food is a little pricey - but tasted gorgeous and the staff were very attentive.... More

The exterior and interior of this restaurant is immaculate! So trendy so clean and always striving to be better and evolve their look! The concept of the old police station works amazing! They have created an upstairs and downstairs eating areas with two very different looks both equally breathtaking! The food is incredible. Simple. We are both (myself and my... More

Fabulous Evening! Arrived on spec at a friends recommendation (although you were rather difficult to find on Yell.com, and Google, so if I hadn't known your company name we would have ended up elsewhere!). The friend didn't tell us about the building history. We thought it was fascinating! Loved visiting the downstairs, and thought the service, and the friendliness of... More

We visited this restaurant a few years ago and found it to be cold (it was December) with poor service and not very good food! We were persuaded by our daughter to try again. What a change! Warm and welcoming with a great menu and good quality food to match. Only downside was that the old building echoes, which for... More

Everything about this restaurant is extraordinary. The building is incredible and has been stylised with impeccable taste and devotion. The waiting team are perfectly attentive and conversant. The food is just out of this world, 10 out of 10 on taste and presentation. I had the Tandoori Chicken Tikka which came on a sizzling platter with peppers, mushrooms and onions... More

We have visited a few times this year and the food is excellent as always as is the standard of service and the surroundings. I will still never understand why I get a strawberry with my starter but this place is top notch and so consistent you can guarantee a good experience

We were staying in Ironbridge for the weekend to celebrate my birthday, and after seeing the previous excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, we thought that we would give Pondicherry a try. We didn't book a table, however after a few minutes wait, a polite waiter showed us to a table which was very nice. He took our drinks order which... More
