I visited this place with very little expectations. All I was looking for was a clean place to eat which served veg food but this place turned out to be a gem. The thali was simple yet a gastronomical delight. Highly recommended

Been here before, and always a treat! Great breakfast, reasonably good variety. Consistent quality. A must visit for breakfast on any visit to Pondicherry!

Surguru's is one of the the most popular restaurants in Pondicherry. The food is tasty and service is prompt. We tried a variety of dishes during two meals which we had and were not disappointed. The restaurant can have a long wait during rush hours which itself highlights its popularity.

If you have a glance at their contents, you'll see they contain all that necessary to try out a variety of dishes and... More

We were told that this Pure Veg restaurant is superb in food in snacks as well as lunch. We tried Rava Dosa, Idli , Medu Vada & Sweet Lassi. All were average in taste & quantity. All the dishes were priced high. e.g. 1 Vada costs 27 Rs. which is way too much in Pondicherry. Even in bangalore Vada does... More
