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

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.

Better to visit in evening, as its empty in the morning.. Very authentic Continental food, worth trying out new dishes Little over priced compared to quantity.

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

I have eaten at Satsanga in the past and been satisfied but this time I felt everything had deteriorated. I was by myself and I felt invisible. The service was very poor. It took ages for anyone to come and take my order and then the food also took ages to arrive. It was very ordinary food. OK, it wasn't... More

Very terrible service from the staff. Staffs are not pretty sure what order they have taken on a table. Every now and then, they keep coming back to us asking whether they have ordered the dish and the service was the worst part. It took almost half an hour to bring a salad and an hour or so to bring... More

Nice atmosphere, nice food, friendly staff BUT, god how slow. Waited over an hour to be served, forgot to bring a salad, but initially put it on the bill anyway. Only go if you are in no rush whatsoever and of a very patient disposition. They so obviously need more staff it's comical.

Avoidable…………….service is bad as the place seems to be severely understaffed. Food is nothing to rave about as well and dishes are not always as described on the menu.
