Not worth a visit

Its a beautiful outdoor seated place with good music and ambiance. Remains pretty crowded during night time. But i would not advice people to visit this place if food is the main priority for them. The service is slow and the food is bad. We had ordered Spaghetti Bolognese and it was awful tasting... read more

In the French Quarter and just around the corner from French Quarter hotels is Satsanga French and Italian Restaurant ( also with plenty of Indian dishes on the menu). It has a lovely garden setting, reasonable prices and friendly staff. The food is good, though not exceptional. A large Kingfisher beer 750 ml is 175Rs + 15% tax. The menu... More

tasteful, a bit touristy because now every one knows it's good :) The food is not too spicy. I like the terrace, it is very comfortable. I did not really enjoy the staff though, not always very friendly. I recommend it for people who just arrive and want to have a taste of India

Went there with my family for a evening meal. The seating is outdoors which though humid was bearable. What was a disappointment was the food - very badly cooked and highly priced. To make matters worse, too many cats and mosquitoes keep you company !! - Not recommended.

There's a reason for my review title : one of the objectives on our trip to Pondy was to make each lunch & dinner count :) - and Satsanga which was 'highly recommended' turned out to be a total waste of one lunch. The food was just ok and the service pathetic. It was pretty much empty and we were... More

I visited this place on the recommendation of my hotel's reception. There was some musician set to perform the night i visited. It was jam packed with locals and foreigners alike. I expected a great night. When I saw the menu, i was displeased at the lack of choice. I guess if you re not very picky with your food... More
