I went to Surguru restaurant, s.v.patel road, pondy on 11.04.15 with my family for lunch. Ordered lunch. The service was too worst, bad. Bearers are waste not having hospitality in serving the customers. Better to avoid Surguru hotel.

Considering the reputation, the actual food is a let down. Not much better than regular street food. The ice-cream was generous, but at its price, it was not a steal. The location is great and if you don't want to walk far from the ashram it is good enough. The ambience is good - but a couple of plates we... More

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

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.

As a college group of friends we, went to Surguru to get decent but cheap food for lunch. And that's what we got! There are two types of Thali here, the North Indian and the South Indian. 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
