Superfast service and very decent food at this South Indian place. We tried both south indian and north indian Thali and they were tasty. This is a part of the Surguru hotel and it always crowded as lot of people dine there - which is the proof of good food!

Surguru is a very authentic south Indian restaurant. The food there is hygienic and well cooked. Since it is air conditioned it suits the Pondicherry climate which is very hot mostly. They also have other dishes like fried rice, veg biryani, pulao and some north Indian preparation, but all with a south Indian touch to them. This is a place... More

we dined here on our last day in Pondi. The place has a great ambiance and has mostly south Indian cuisine to offer. I would recommend you try the kadai mushrrom - a dish worth every penny. It is cooked in a malabar style gravy with the right spices. Yumm

The whole plethora of whatever that is south Indian. Drop in for lunch, breakfast or dinner you are sure to experience a feast for your tastebuds. The restaurant gets crowded at peak times, so have some patience till you get a seat. Rewards are a plenty for the time you wait.

The most wonderful south indian veg thali on special at lunchtime for Rs 177 really cannot be beaten. My wife would have eaten every meal there given the choice.

We stopped here for Breakfast onroute to another town and it was perfect. The idlis soft and fluffy and the Pongal, Vada perfect. the sambar was simple and delicious. Service was adequate. If good food is what you want then I would recommend this highly. The restaurant is in the basement and the ambience and decor very average almost gloomy
