Rather “a fascinating place” – this Tardis-like, converted underground Edwardian ballroom near Marble Arch serves “fresh and original, French influenced” Indian cuisine in a “tropical and lush”, foliage-filled interior. At times “service could be sharper” though, and even many fans would concede that eating here costs a “lotta loot”.
“Travel in time and space to Pondicherry” at this exotic venue in a converted subterranean Edwardian ballroom off Marble Arch. “Inside, it’s vast, like a tropical forest”, and with “fine”, rather unusual Franco-Indian cuisine, it adds up to “a real experience”: “expensive, but understandably so”.
“From the outside it appears ordinary”, but inside this “Tardis-like” space near Marble Arch is “vast, exotic and beautiful”, complete with “a waterfall and costumed waiters”; it’s all good “fun”, and “complemented by great food” from an “upmarket” French-colonial Indian menu.
A deceptively large and unexpectedly lavishly-themed basement (“like being in the Tropics”), near Marble Arch; “it’s a bit expensive”, but serves “interesting” French-colonial Indian food that’s “just a little bit different from the norm”.
