Outstation Restaurant Reviews/ Puducherry

Hotel Sri Kamatchi Biriyani Veedu, White Town, Puducherry

A very satisfying lunch on a Sunday afternoon!  We already decided that it had to be a proper South-Indian non-vegetarian food, and obviously Sri Kamatchi was one of the first names to come to my mind.  I have visited Hotel Sri Kamatchi on 100 Feet road earlier, and didn’t have a very great experience while my visit to their branch in Ashok Nagar, Chennai was very memorable.

I’ve had a couple of friends tell me that their branch in White Town is much better, in Puducherry.  Decided to check it out on Day 2 of our trip.

Needless to say, we entered into quite a packed house at 2:15 PM on a Sunday.  After giving our names, waited for about 10 minutes before we got a table.  Thanks to the few folks who didn’t show up after their names were called out a couple of times.  We managed to get a table sooner than expected.

Quick glance at the menu, we placed our order – 1 Mutton Biryani, 1 Prawns Biryani, 1 Egg Biryani, 1 Chicken 65, 1 Kamatchi Chicken and 1 Karandi Omelette.

Mutton Biryani was flavorsome, I was told.  Soft pieces, tasty seeragasamba biryani.

Prawns Biryani was good too.  Like most places, it is tawa sautéed prawns mixed with Biryani I think, else you wouldn’t see curry leaves in Biryani.  🙂  I was told it was tasty too.

Egg Biryani was tasty.  I had this along with two chicken sides and Karandi Omelette.  Loved it.  Accompaniments were tasty too.  Raita and the gravy.

Chicken 65 was like home-made, sans the color, just rightly fried.  Crispy, but soft, It was wonderful.

Kamatchi Chicken, a dry chicken dish tasted good.  It was a good accompaniment to the Biryani. 

Karandi Omelette, a nice fluffy egg omelette.  Loved it!

Goli soda was available in fancy plastic bottles, ordered one each – Two Paneer and two blueberry flavor.  Perhaps they meant blue curacao flavor.  Both of them tasted good.

As we finished the biryani, the very polite waiter insisted that I try a bit of white rice with their rasam, and that was complimentary.  Normally I finish with biryani, but decided to give it a shot.  It was tasty indeed!  Thanked him for the recommendation.

Overall, a very satisfying meal on the second day of our Pondicherry trip!  I think we paid a little less than 1.5K in all, I’ll certainly come back again and recommend this place for good food!
