We had our best meal of our Pondicherry trip here. Biryani was just out of the world. We all loved it. Highly recommended. Its just walking distance from rock beach.

We had our best meals here, when in Pondicherry. We are huge fans of South Indian non vegetarian food. So, when we came to know of this place, we knew we'd to come here. & after our first visit, we ended up coming again the following night.
On our first visit, we had Chicken Biryani, Egg Dosai, Fish Kamatchi, & Malli Chicken. We had to force ourselves to stop as it was a case of tummies being full but hearts still craving more. The service was great too. The manager gave special attention to us.
The next night we had Mutton Dosai, Kadai Biryani, & Prawn Kamatchi. Again, some of the best food we've ever eaten. Do note that the place place was full both the times we went. On the first night, a few of the items had also got over. So be in time if you want to try different dishes off the menu.
The second night, too, we had to wait for a table, & finally share one with other patrons. But, anything for good food! We can return to Pondicherry just to have food at Sri Kamatchi.

Small place that serves amazing non veg food and Thali. The prawn biryani is out of the world and the king fish / surmai fry is good too. The prawn kamatchi is an oily dish with egg yolks used as batter that can be tried too.

Kindly note this is a South indian place and do not expect it to have a global/Goan appeal.

Plz don't visit restaurants on just seeing the ratings in Google. Plz avoid this place if u r going with ur family, especially if u have kids.

Sharing my horrible experience here.
Visited this place on 30-12-2018. Around 1.30 p.m very small restaurant. Only 20 can be seated at max. Went with my family which includes my elderly father and my two kids who are 5 years old. They took our name and informed 30 mins waiting time. And we saw only two groups waiting and 3rd is ours. So decided to wait. Since already it's a congested place and no place to sit. Somehow got a single chair for my kids. Half an hour went, many ppl in 2 r 3 batches came in. The ppl who came before us were accommodated. We thought next is us. But to our surprise, the person in charge started sending other men who cam after us. When my father questioned it, the person in charge started raising his voice and said "only we will decide whom to be accommodated" and started shouting at my father how can we question them. The lady who booked our name told us another two groups r still in waiting. My kids are already tired and hungry. With no other option, decided to leave the place.
Never seen such a worse hospitality in my entire life. Looks like they avoided us as our kids may accomodate two chairs and waste time. Never ever visit this place, if u have kids.

Briyani is really good, costs 220. Nonveg meal comes with plain fish,mutton, chicken gravies but not tasty, pot curd is good. We ordered kamatchi fish, taste is good but quantity is very less, they gave 6 small pieces which costs 180, nethilli fry is below average.
Overall there is nothing to say like must try here but If you like jeraga samba briyani then you wont be disappointed.
