Terrrible service

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... read 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.

The place did not look clean, there were fies everywhere and food was quite terrible!! My "French" crepe came loaded with spinach, whipped cream and cheese! Even the Indian dishes were quite distasty- with all the other great eating places in Pondy - this place should definitely not be on your agenda!

We literally have to call out the waiters for attending and they seem to be inetrested to serve only alcoholic beverages. Everyone in the restaurant were made... More

we headed for Satsanga for a quiet dinner. From outside it looked very romantic, but once we were seated. No one showed any interest at all. We were eight of us and ordered some chicken and pasta. The service was slow and waiters disinterested. My pasta did come after half hour of waiting it had a metal bolt in it.... More
