“Nice and pleasant”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

This place offers a good vareity of French and Indian cuisine at a reasonable price.

The restaurant itself has a typical village look with a few people hanging out there.

The staff was extremely courteous and pleasant.

The food was decent and filling.

All in all a very mid scale restaurant for a nice lunch.

“Relishing dinner”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Searched a lot to find this restaurant but it was totally worth it. The rooftop restaurant has a wonderful ambience and the food is really good. Lemon chicken with rice was yummmmmmmy.

“When it's good it's really Excellent”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

I was interested to read other people's comments on Satsanga restaurant, having visited several times during the past year.
I suppose I could echo a little bit of everything I have read - both good and bad. However, I am still going to give this restaurant 5 stars***** - because I feel that Satsanga got it wonderfully right on the things that really matter.
Firstly: food. I recommend the salade compagnard starter (chicken liver salad) followed by crevettes provencales (or maybe boeuf maitre d'hotel...or maybe steak au poivre...or maybe....), with mousse au chocolat for dessert, and coffee. .....Drinks? - I didn't try the wine, so I can only recommend the Fosters.
Secondly: ambience - spacious, airy, comfortable garden setting (also a rooftop perch) with evening cabaret. Relaxed, easy-going atmosphere.
Thirdly: service - Well, they were not always very fast (but they did get the drinks served up pretty quick) - and they were once (one time out of five visits) a bit confused about dishes and the bill. But I would put that down to the fact that the place is popular and therefore busy, and that the staff have a fair distance to run between tables and kitchen (it is a very spacious setting). I didn't find this disturbing - because the staff were always helpful and friendly, and when they made a mistake they were apologetic.
Satsanga was one of the highlights of my trip to Pondicherry, and I would gladly go back again for further gourmandizing.....

“open air, relaxed environment”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

First of all this place is on Rue La Bourdonnais and not on Rue Bussy anymore. At this new location, it has ground floor open shade seating and roof top, shack seating. We lunched and dined at the respective places on two different days. Food's ok. Nothing extraordinary. Drinks are cheap. But what we liked the best was the ambiance and the environment. Great place to spend a couple of lazy hours.The waiters could do a little better in terms of promptness and politeness. But like I said, worth a visit.
