  • They have avocado toast.
  • The menu is always changing which is a great thing if you are a frequent visitor. New surprises all the time!
  • A delicious, yet spicy breakfast. Portions are larger than they sound in the menu. So be prepared to grab a bottle of water from the front
  • Small portions, and dishes can be unexpectedly very spicy. Ask before you order!
  • Everything was delicious! Cheese and egg dosa was a great starter
  • Everything is delicious but their brunch and pastries are best. A paradise for gluten-free and/or vegan desserts!
  • Dope meal. Lentil chaat, lettuce wraps and dosas were awesome. Mango lassi to drink
  • Stopped in here for a drink before the sex museum, they have some very cool Indian inspired cocktails. The golden mule (Moscow mule plus turmeric) is delicious
  • Nice people and place, but overrated. Food is beautifully plated but at the expense of actual taste (e.g. overly spiced wings, saag paneer wasn't cubed). Creative dishes. Good dessert
  • Eat The Pastries
  • It was OK.
  • Hen of the woods mushrooms, mussels, chicken
  • Usually not crowded, but if you are in a hurry for your curry... sit at the bar and go for the chicken or veggie dishes.
  • theres better, and cheaper Indian to be had elsewhere. portions are tiny and flavours are lacking...feels like they are trying too hard to be hip
  • Tasty food. Beautiful, airy space.
  • Their baked goods are really good!
  • Rob Pratt - we would love to hear about your experience at Pondicheri.
  • Curry hill doesn't compare. Well considered dishes in generous portions.
  • Kale pakora chaat. Shrimp & egg dosa.
  • Stay away from this place.
