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

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.

The service is pathethic. Half of the menu dishes are not available. Overall a sad place . Good to have a drink and sit doing nothing.

We went to satsanga for dinner .. it had a nice romantic outdoor seating but the food was not great at all. It is highly overrated and over priced for the quality of the food.
