We might have visited this A2B branch at a bad time. But it (first floor hall) was crowded, noisy, and the service was average. We had the South Indian meals which was decent.

The service staff is really pathetic! discourteous. If you have good patience, go there. Variety of food is good.

If you want to have South Indian food in Pondi, you either go to Surguru or A2B or Kamatchi Restaurant. All 3 serve authentic south indian (though kamatchi is the best for non vegetarian south indian food). Choose any of the 3 and you'll love your meal.

One can always rely on this place. Well maintained and tasty food. A wide variety of sweets are available too. The a/c facility in the first floor is really helpful especially on a hot day.

This is a fast food restaurant with sweets and savories available. Its completely vegetarian. You can stop here for a quick meal or snack. All are decently priced and the place is neat too. We stopped here for breakfast and enjoyed it. Try their mini tiffin for tasting varieties or their pongal, it was yummm.

Cheap and delicious south Indian food. Good service too. But the place wasn't clean. The floor was wet and filthy, perhaps because it was rush hour. If you can ignore that, do visit for the food.

if you want to eat where the locals eat and taste authentic south indian- this is your culinary one stop shop. Enjoy the classics and shop some savoury or sweet to take with you.
