The best part about Chateau de Pondicherry is that even though it is located smack in the middle of south Delhi, once you enter the restaurant all you can hear are birds chirping and the rustling of trees. The blue and white interiors are serene albeit a tad rustic, which is perfect for those who do not really like a very formal atmosphere. The cuisine is an interesting mix of dishes you get down south – from 'Coconut Rasam' to 'Mini Visiri Dosai' to 'Athu Kary Dalcha' – there are dishes almost unheard of in the north. While the French influences are clear – what with a delicious repertoire of crepes and sole Meunier, a classic lemon butterfish, it is unusual to see how nicely it has been executed. A tiny menu, which helps you make a quick choice, do not forget to try the 'Koji Kary Vindail' – a chicken curry and parotta dish and the 'Puducherry Sambar Rice' – with a touch of sweetness from the jaggery.
A very warm and cosy restaurant. Very welcoming staff. Lovely ambience. Would request a better menu for vegetarians. Add wine by the glass to the bar menu. Great desserts.
I am writing this 5 months after I visited the place. My girlfriend and I were there in April for my birthday and we were the only people there. The owners were also there and made the day extra special. An unforgettable experience, almost felt like our own personal space. The sangria was just perfect.
Delicious food, unique (in Delhi) southern coastal cuisine with french colonial influence. I love the egg/shrimp mimosa, the Keema with peas and toast (Pondicherry take on keema pav), Prawn varuval (also served with pav). Chicken chettinad I could go on. Restaurant is small nicely decorated with friendly staff and owners. Why are you still reading this when you could be one your way!
The Chateau de Pondicherry is a real surprise. It serves extremely tasty Tamil French food. The hosts personally supervise everything and the staff is extremely courteous.It is located on Aurobindo road very near the Adhchini junction. The place has a calming effect. It is spacious. They serve a variety of cold drinks. There is such an assortment of delicious puddings and desserts.
This restaurant is located on the busy Aurobindo road just south of Adhchini village. Since it is off the main road on a little cul-de-sac with some parking, it is easy to get to even for older and mobility-restricted diners. The restaurant is spacious and roomy, and the decor is very tasteful. (I liked their cutlery and crockery). We were interested in coming here after eating some spectacular Franco-Tamil food in Pondicherry. The food here is good non-vegetarian Tamil food with some innovation. Drinks: I tried the Medusa Devi cocktail (vodka, mint, cucumber, apple juice and apples). Very refreshing and well made -- the mint leaves are very flavourful, but come on a bit stronger than the cucumber (which goes extremely well with vodka. Feedback to the owners, please use "Hilton" or german cukes -- the seeds of the desi cheer were a bit annoying) . The Pina colada was a bit sweet and the ice cubes should have been crushed. Could also have done with a pineapple garnish. Starters: Mimosa Motthai -- devilled eggs with prawns; absolutely superb. coconut milk rasam -- very tasty and substantial. Would have loved it more if it had seafood (shrimps) in it. Shrimps with pao -- I forget what it's called on the menu. Very tasty, though it would be nicer if they used toasted baguettes. Main dishes: A mutton in a sambar-like stew with rice,papad and chutney was very good (or so my family said -- since it was very very hot, I didn't try). As I can't take chillies, I asked the owner if the chicken can be done with black pepper, and instead of rice, I got a stack of set dosais/flapjack style. Excellent combination .. Not exactly on the menu, but should be, and nice of them to oblige us. We were too full to try the crepes, which they say is their speciality. The service was personal but a little scatty. Even though we were about the only folks there when we got in, they forgot the Salad Nicoise (but then we were too full to remind them), and had to remind them about the Pina Colada. They also need to refill the water glasses more often. Nice fresh tastes, different from the usual fare. Would like to wish them success, but they may need to up their game a bit -- a bit more inventiveness with the French aspect, and indicators of how "chilli hot" a dish is going to be would be nice.
