This A2B is good to have some hot bites in the evening. They serve well prepared tasty hot chat items and nice sweets. But the cleanliness is below the mark as in their other branches.

I had visited this place around lunch time, the staff spoke like as though they were serving free lunch, supervisor and the manager was so rude and impolite. They are so arrogant and take their guests for granted. AVOID the place

Good food, not very costly. Only problem is at times, it takes 45 to 50 minutes to get food. Decent place for budget food.

The weather in Pondicherry was hot... More

The hygiene standards are maintained same as other Adyar Anand Bhavans, but the taste of food is not as good. Ambience is OK and is crowded almost all the day.
