Its a lovely little house with a rooftop restaurant and a boutique in the ground floor. There's only one lady who takes and delivers orders. We had pizza dosa (which was not good and we couldnt finish), European thali (which was lovely!), cool thai salad (which was a cold noodle salad and again yummmmy!), cheese omelet (sinfully delicious and wafer...

Kasha ki Aasha is an Indian cafe founded by a lady settled in US. It's a boutique cafe. We went here on a strong recommendation; and were not disappointed. Located in the white town of Pudducherry, the building has a heritage touch and inside, smiling attendants welcome you and show you around a large display of handloom stuff which are... More

We reached this place after checking out its (over)rating on Zomato. Apart from the interesting gift shop and the pleasantness of a rooftop sitting with shade - there's nothing else we enjoyed there. The food was rather average and overpriced for no valid reason. It pinches! The service was lethargic. There was only one lady who would bring in the... More

Nice atmosphere, but that is the only good thing about this restaurant! Service was terrible, we had to keep on asking for drinks and food came in drips and drabs. The jazz singe was totally too loud to make any kind of conversation!

We really enjoyed chilling on the rooftop under the shade- it's a nice getaway to the busy streets below- the food is good although slightly pricey for what they are. The lemon soda was a standout!

We only went in for chai and a break from sightseeing, ended up spending a pleasant hour on the shady roof terrace and eating great chocolate crepes. A lovely team of friendly Tamil ladies looked after us. Interesting gift / craft shop too.

Been to KKA multiple times and love the collection of art and craft. Even for guys - you can buy the different kurta s chappals and other accessories. I love the casual environment and the food on the rooftop restaurant. The place is always buzzing with people, art, discussions, and music. There are multiple live music, dance, discussions, photography session... More
