We had dinner here and the food was one of the best we tasted so far. The only downside is the non-existing Charme - you sit in a large hall with air-conditioning on full blast. Anyway, the food was worth it

Surguru is one of the best veg restaurant in Pondicherry. They provide nice homely food. The place is in the city centre itself, easily accessible. Never miss a chance to visit if you want good veg food in Pondicherry.

Before we walked in, I was warned that the place might be packed. It was, full of locals. There were two tables left and we took one of them. We ordered dhal, aloo paratha and thali.

We stopped twice to have lunch here during our trip to Chidambaram and beyond. The restaurant we went to (they've three In Pondicherry) was nice and clean. The menu is quite expansive. We had variety of food and all were good. Reasonable pricing too.
