Aristo is a no nonsense restaurant set in a old building set in Nehru Road in White Town of Pondicherry. It was difficult to spot even when we knew ball park area of its location. I have reduced a star rating because the hotel watchman was useless and caused trouble while parking our car instead of helping us. He was... More

Recommended by my local friend. Initially unsure about the quality and food as it looked cramped and small from outside, But food is really awesome. Now I make a point to visit this restaurant every time I come to pondy.
