We went there searching for some great music and good pub food. And as this was the most hyped and talked about place in the vicinity for such music and food; we decided to go there. However, all we got was disappointment. First of all, live music was not playing and staff quoted local elections as a reason. And then;... More

If you are a sane woman or have one in your company whilst at Pondi, and looking at spending the weekend night at a discotheque like Asian House then you might wanna think again. Unless you enjoy getting smacked on your backside (we actually saw that happen to a girl walking across the floor) , have guys follow you after... More

We asked to be made into a starter and the wait staff was very accommodating. We were there during the happy hour. Good prices and Chinese fare... More
