If you are in a hurry then do not visit the place. They are not slow but has their own flavour. Ideal place for drinks and food. Very decent.

The food is awesome! Its crafted! The ambience is awesome and you would want to sit here for ages and keep on ordering. Pricing is little on higher side but totally worth it. Must visit when you are in Pondi!
