Anantha Heritage


Breakfast is fresh, tasty and included in the room rate. Western or south Indian is the choice and we went for the idli and dosa which hit the spot!

There is no fully-fledged restaurant at Anantha but lunch and dinner can be prepared with some advance notice and again leans towards south Indian (which is no bad thing). Unlike many hotels, it’s fine if you want to order in food from outside and the staff will serve you in the first floor dining area.

Despite there being no bar, alcohol can be brought in from outside and the staff, who are always happy to help, will keep it in the house refrigerator for you.

All in all we thought the food was great value for money, and not having to cater to many guests meant it was evidently prepared with real thought and care.

Food has a largely south Indian influence with some good options; this vegetarian, for one, was more than happy!

Dining nearby

The best options for eating out in Pondicherry are mostly in the nearby French quarter.

Check out Surguru on Mission Street which is a busy, buzzing vegetarian joint, a hit with the locals who come for the super cheap, quick and delicious south Indian thali. No alcohol.

Madam Shante’s (on Romain Rolland Street), where a meal for 2 should set you back around Rs 900, is well worth a visit. This laidback, rooftop restaurant is good for a cozy dinner or group meal, and despite shortcomings in refinement and detail the food is fresh and well-prepared. Dishes include garlic squid, prawns in plumb sauce and grilled pork. Note that no alcohol is served.

Satsanga (Labourdonnais Street) is typically recommended in Pondicherry and priced with an eye on the tourist trade (approx Rs 2000 for a meal for 2 with drinks). Though we found it lacking in some respects, the food mostly hit the right spot and the garden setting is a plus. Difficult to find so take an auto.

Avoid Le Cafe, the only sea-facing restaurant on the promenade (now Goubert Avenue). Run by Pondicherry’s ministry of tourism and with a 24 hour licence and the best location possible, this place should be excellent but instead falls down on every count. Coffee in a plastic glass? No thanks.
