Being an ovo-vegetarian always leave sme with fewer choices but this place didnt disappoint. The food takes a bit long to be served but is certainly prepared meticulously and my taste-buds had a good time. Special mention to egg-curry and rice. Its a place to go with ample time in hand and try out new things. Outdoor seating does have... More

We ate twice at this place on our last visit to Pondicherry. That itself says a lot about the food at Satsanga because Pondicherry lanes are dotted with good dining places and I wouldn't miss the chance to try something new very easily.

One of the best places for good food in Pondy with open seating and reasonable prices. Good for both family and business groups

Back to pondy after many a years , Satsanga has always been a must visit when ever i visited Pondy . The place has lost its charm and its hartening. Used to be "The place"for dinner is still dwelling on the years gone by .

After traveling around India the last few months, my mate and I were craving some good western food. We we delighted by mouth watering steaks (French style), icy icy cold beer and top notch service. It might not satisfy this looking for 'fine dining' but if you're after a wholesome, mouth watering meal at a decent prices, look no further.... More

During my last visit to Pondicherry my friend suggested satsanga for lunch and he told me it is best French restaurant of Pondicherry and he was right. I enjoyed my lunch there and best thing is if you lucky you, sometime you can share your food with the owner.

We had heard and read about Satsanga, so went for lunch and were a little disappointed at what we got. Maybe they were having an off day. First of all, they seated us outdoors at our request, but didn't clean the table nor spread a tablecloth. We noticed that they did that for others, so it felt a bit odd... More

We went there on various travel guide's recommendations, one esp. praising the food. So expectations were high, reality low! Though a nice place to sit (once inside, because the street outside looked more like a garbage dump) and generally friendly staff, the evening developed into a 'never come back' experience. The menue card presented consisted of largely torn simple A4... More
