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

We had a marvellous meal here, a varied menu with many unusual dishes, the food was excellent throughout as was the wine list which is well priced and very funny descriptions of the wine. The service was superb, we always like a break between courses and that was no problem, with the dishes being cooked to order. This was our... More

Have been coming here for the lovely food for some years as we live locally but in the past we have had some occasional problems with the slow service with long waits between courses-but to their credit they have turned this around and in our experience the service is now excellent The front of house staff are very welcoming and...

We had a gorgeous meal. Could tell as soon as we walked through the door it was going to be Fantastic! Really friendly staff and impeccably clean! As well as classic dishes they had chef specialty dishes which we haven't seen elsewhere and were certainly worth tying. This was our first visit but won't be our last!!!

Me and some friends had a gorgeous meal here. When we arrived it was fairly quiet and we got a table easily. The waiter was prompt to take our order for drinks and then later food which arrived very quickly as well. It was amazing, everything was full of flavour and piping hot. However, after we had finished our main... More

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
