We ate hear at the recommendation of Tim, the owner of the Library House b&b who booked the table for us. The restaurant is in the old Police Station in the town centre. The menu was varied with some very nice sounding chef's specials. The décor is very modern and it is great that they have kept most of the... More

We were recommended this restaurant by one of the staff at the Premier Inn we were staying in at nearby Telford. The whole experience was superb. Very attentive staff, unusual venue and wonderful food. So different to your usual Indian restaurant.

Been a couple of times now and had a great meal. The food is fresh, good service and a reasonable price. Worth visiting.

In a converted Police Station in Waterloo St it oozes charm and provides something different in Ironbridge . Service excellent , well mannered staff and very good food. The menu was vast and price wise quite good value. Some choices could leave someone not used to hot curries feeling peaky but advice is on hand. Well behaved clientele made a... More

This was a real find. It's an Indian restaurant in the old police station in Ironbridge. Surprisingly few people in on our first evening there but what an experience. It was the first time my son had eaten in an Indian restaurant. Amazing experience, not only was the food fantastic but we were shown the rest of the police station,... More

The food at the Pondicherry was excellent. We would recommend the lamb shank! We would definitely become regular patrons if we lived nearby.

Here on Bank Holiday Saturday, had already booked the table for 2 of us. Have been to this restaurant many times, this was the worst, they had lots of big parties booked there, had to wait for a table. Very noisy, the service was not as good if you were there just as a couple, they were just not interested.... More

We had an excellent meal at the Pondicherry. We had not booked but were made very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The waiter explained what the dishes were and the ones we chose were freshly cooked and delicious. We would certainly revisit when next in the area and would recommend to anyone who enjoys Indian food.

Ate at the Pondicherry whilst staying in the area and we had the most wonderful experience from start to finish! The restaurant itself is a converted police station and we booked a private cell downstairs which was lovely. Each of the cells have been made into modern, sophisticated areas. The staff were very friendly and the service was exceptional. The... More

To start, I would like to say a huge thank you to the staff and manager at Pondicherry - we had a fab night!! We went on a Friday night as a party of 8. When we arrived we were taken down to the cells and ordered drinks, our table was ready quickly and we soon found ourselves up in... More
