Do not be misled by the name. They could just as well have called it the Tuscan Café or the Kurla Café for all the connection the food has with Pondicherry. This your standard hotel coffee-shop, executed with a high degree of expertise and competence. There are À la carte and buffet sections but the restaurant, which does very well at lunch, is usually full of executives from the offices in the Bandra-Kurla complex looking for a quick lunch at a multicuisine buffet. That said, the buffet spread is lavish and nobody goes back to work hungry.
