We've been to the Pondi several times - its a great place, lots of atmosphere and very contemporary. It can get quite noisy when the restaurant is full which does put me off going when I think it might be busy as its hard to have a conversation then. However - its still the best indian restaurant around and would... More

We were recommended this restaurant, and as we love indian food decided to give it a try. The building is lovely, and has been well renovated. The service was very good also, unfortunately the food was not. On a good note, my husbands salmon starter was lovely and he enjoyed his main course. My starter arrived, and the look was... More

Place is unique and very well done out and has a great atmosphere and service is excellent and food superb. We had a group of six and were in a lovely cell downstairs which gave us privacy but still great service. They have some different and very enjoyable things on the menu which is unique to this Restuarant and worth... More

My partner and I after reading so many positive reviews on here, decided to give Pondicherry a try this evening, sitting here a few hours later, I'm still undecided on my real thoughts, I really wanted to love it, but in all honesty I'm a little under whelmed! It's a fantastic setting in a old police station with the main... More

Absolute fantastic. Went here for the 1st time for my 3 year anniversary to be treated by a very polite gentleman who led us upstairs to the restaurant and placed us in an alcove. The place looked absolute stunning. Very posh and is amazing how they have converted a police station. We had poppadoms for starters with some beautiful sauces.... More

We were staying at the library house and Tim and Sarah recommended Pondicherry. They rang and booked a table for us later that evening. We were greeted and shown to our table by a very friendly manager and he mentioned Tim and Sarah. The food was delicious, not the average Indian fare at all. Would certainly visit again. Service and... More

Fantastic food and service, and for a group of 10+ women on a girly night out, having the facility to put us in the 'cells' downstairs with bottles of wine and music was just brilliant! Definitely visiting again!
