“MOUTH-WATERING!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We came here after it was recommended by David the owner of The Old Rectory B&B we were staying at and we were not disappointed, extremely friendly staff, very modern interior and most importantly delicious food.

If we were in the area again would love to pay another visit and will certainly recommend to friends.

“Pondicherry makes me merry!!! A Telford treat x”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend.....WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG TO TRY IT??? It was amazing! I cannot rate this place enough.

We booked a table over the phone, the young man had a very friendly and helpful manner and booked us in without hesitation.

The food=Gorgeous!!! Delicious,soft chicken and the garlic bread was THE BEST I HAVE EVER TASTED!! Definitely recommending!

Value for money and worth every penny! Costs a little more than some of the other places in Telford, but im not going to go anywhere else from now on!

The atmosphere was AMAZING!!! We ate and then asked if we could take a peek at the police cells downstairs. We ended the night a few hours later after a few drinks and after soaking up the EXCELLENT SERVICE and the spooooooky environment.

The perfect evening!
The perfect staff!
I cannot thank the staff enough for making the evening a BRILLIANT one.
A TELFORD TREAT THAT WILL BE SEEING ALOT MORE OF ME AND MY FRIENDS!!

“Beautiful food, brilliant service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We've eaten here a number of times and had takeaways from here as well. We never have cause for complaint. I had a surprise party here for my partner in august and the staff couldn't have been better. A fab time had by all!

“The great escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

The modern Indian cuisine here was stylish and delicious. The building is fascinating, a former police station and court, and you can eat in the stylish court room or book a private room in one of the recently redecorated cells downstairs. The staff were helpful and friendly, and when we asked about the building one of the waiters very proudly gave us a full tour before we left. He took us down to the cells and was even kind enough to let us out again.
