This was my second visit to Surguru and I had a detour of 20kms towards pondy just to have luch at this place, like my earlier visit didn't disappoint. South Indian Thali (Unlimited meals) is very good served in Silver plate (not sure how they manage to !!). Quick service adds points and staff were very courteous. Food is not... 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

Though I am not a south indian food aficionado or expert , but this ranks definitely one on the higher side when it comes to south indian thali. Samber rasam and the other currys (I dont know the names); service was literally in two mins; 120 rs per thali; Absolute value for money

It is simple and no frill restaurants with good South Indian food in Pondicherry. Order any variety of South Indian items you can enjoy them. But if you are from other parts of India then give...
