“Very expensive- not so delightful”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Go to Kasha ki Asha for just 1 reason:
1. If you have a lot of money to blow off.

The ambiance of the place is nice and welcoming. The cosy seats on the floor welcome you. The open air restaurant has been enclosed on all sides, so the heat starts getting on to you. But, wait till you reach out for the menu. And you will be blown off by the lack of options on the menu and you will feel as if everything has been priced with an extra "0" - this "0" being the one that makes your pockets light. The food tastes bland and lacks any good local flavours. After you gulp down the last morsel, your experience of blowing off your money on something that you could have got at hundreds of other places in Pondy is complete!

The empty plates say just one thing, Do (not) come again :)

“great place to unwind and chill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Been here about 3 weeks now and we go to have a juice and a snack here about every 2nd day,we live in Ireland,but my wife was actually born in this house and lived here until she was 18 ,we came to have a look at her old house and discovered it had been converted into this lovely cafe and shop , it is run by women and they have been very nice to us each time we visit . The food is excellent and is freshly prepared.the cafe is located on the roof and has always a lovely calming athmosphere ,we still have a week left here ,so we will be visiting again ...well worth a visit and there is never a rush to leave ..

“Delicious Pancakes!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

A delicious break from the streets of Pondicherry, this neatly tucked-away rooftop cafe offers breakfast and lunch that will leave you very satisfied. They really mean it when they welcome you to spend the DAY in the shaded lounge chairs, enjoying the breeze.

“Perfect place to just relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

More than the store, the rooftop eatery was inviting. After a hectic day of travel from Delhi-Chennai-Pondy, we just put up our feet at Kasha and relaxed for a good 2-3 hours. Light breeze flowing in from the sea. Don't go there to shop/eat but just to sit with a book and a drink, or for a short time-out with a bunch of friends. A one-time visit.
