“High on taste, low on ambience and indispensable to vegetarians!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Every time we have gone to Hotel Jayram, it has been with a ravenous appetite and the hotel has never disappointed us. The service is quick, the thali is sumptuous and the snacks are arty. The owner, an elderly gentleman, keeps walking around to check if all is well. There is, almost always, a certain amount of waiting involved, but the turnover is quick. The North Indian Thali takes some time but is a great favourite with children.
If at all I have a bone to pick with the restaurant, it is that it is quite low n both ambience and lighting. This sometimes raises doubts about the cleanliness but a peek into the kitchen can be very reassuring.
Having said that, the fact remains that, Hotel Jayaraman is a life saver which scores very high on taste as well!

“VALUE FOR MONEY”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Hotel Jayaram is situated very close to the main market area of Pondicherry Town. It offers good quality breakfast and lunch/Dinner at very affordable price.Main advantage is good parking area, air-conditioned dining hall and good decent food. The strategic location of this restaurant is the added advantage. This restaurant has attached lodging facility also which is of budget class. Really good for a budget tourist.

“A very good veg dining spot”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is one of the best dining options, a large good restaurant near to Adlabs theatre. The ambience is very good and can be comparable to Surguru hotel. The north Indian Thali in the night is very good and value for money deal.
