Kasha Ki Aasha was a welcome relaxation spot for us. The coffee brought to mind delicious cups I had in New Orleans – asked, and learned that it was organic, and raised by tribals in the mountains – both of.which I appreciate, in addition to the flavor. The fresh fruit was rejuvenating and tasty, and my daughter very much enjoyed... More

Having visited Pondicherry 3 times in the past 3 years, this remains my favourite place to eat and drink (and shop!). It serves fresh, home cooked authentic food on a beautiful roof terrace. The pancakes (real american pancakes) are delicious, as are the lunches including soup, 'European thali' and chapati and dhal.

I would not recommend trusting the excellent reviews you see on Tripadvisor as this place is not just slow but badly managed and the food is definitely below average. We asked for Traditional pancakes with honey, home made jam and butter; the first and most popular item on the Breakfast menu. After waiting for 30 minutes, we were served pancakes,... More

Kasha and her all lady staff offer a nice choice of indian food with a bit if an international touch. I had the Indian Enchillada with dal which was great and my son who is not really a fan of indian cuisine had a chocolate croissant. The ambiance on the rooftop terrace is great and very relaxing. A must go... More

With all the hype about this place, I'm quite disappointed. The food is ridiculously overpriced, especially the indian food. Portions are also quite small. The place does look nice and all, but you can eat twice that good (and twice as much) at half the cost almost anywhere in pondi.

An excelent place to relax and have wonderful breakfast, lunches (never tried diners, but must be equivalent standard). Cosy, comfortable bamboo rooftop, very helpful and professional staff, you may just forget time if you start cooling down with a fresh lime juice and chat about Art and photos with the owner! ;-) . Located right in the center of everything... More

As a long-term resident of Pondy, I've relished KKA since the resto/shop opened its doors about ten years ago. Here's why: * Good menu (I've tried everything often; the choice is manageable - some Indian, some not - and vegetarian in a way even a carnivore guy like me appreciates). . * Serves good (and hearty, if that's what you...

The rooftop space in Kasha Ki Asha is absolutely gorgeous. It's such a lovely place to sit, with comfortable chairs, a very kind and accommodating staff and excellent coffee. It's a wonderful place to have a meal, meat friends in a quiet, serene setting, and the boutique downstairs always has hidden treasures. Not to miss if you are passing through... More

kasha Ki Asha was one of my favorite eating experiences in India. After four months in Tamil Nadu, I didn't think I would find something with this amount of charm. The woman who runs the establishment is a French expat, and she'll be more than happy to explain to you her concept for the place, which includes hiring local women... More
