We have travelled South India for 2 weeks&found our choice of foods excellent here.The service was a little slow but when you understand that the waiter's grasp of the English language was not the best & insist on what you require ,it happened.The price matched the food.

The waiters seemed very angry to sit us down to eat. Then we had to wait a very long time to be seen to. Angrily seen to. Then we got our rice to sit and look at maybe 15 minutes before the rest of our food. There was a young member of staff who seemed nice, but shy and made... More

Been at this restaurant for lunch with my family and my friend's family and kids. The restaurant has open outdoor seating and the tables are placed inside small huts and the place is with bamboo plants providing privacy.. Unfortunately, I felt that is the only good thing about this restaurant. We opted for a 10 seat table and found that... More

The sort of place that looks better at night time, hides the dirt. The service was non existent and the tablecloth was covered in food stains. Much better options in Pondicherry.

The service was too slow. Most of them actually requested the bill for what they got and left. The food was cold by the time it reached the table.

Nice place to have some quiet time away from hustle bustle. Ambience is quiet and close to nature. Satff is decent too. Must try fish tikka. Yes, Rotis are genuinely wheat rotis and not the maida ones :)

Two things worth a visit to this restaurant: the outdoor setting (the tables are scattered in a jungle of tropical plants) and the big aquarium at the entrance.
