Pondicheri isn’t a restaurant I’d recommend to anyone. NYC has plenty of much better contemporary / urban / creative Indian restaurants. Here’s the rest of my order that came in before the disastrous thali.
khandvi: chickpea pinwheels rolled with cashew spread, cilantro, coconut & radish $12
Not something I’d reorder. Then again, not a restaurant I’d go back or recommend.
Scallion cheese naan
Delicious. Every. Bite.
bournvita ice cream sandwich: malted chocolate ice cream layered between India’s beloved Parle-G cookies $4
