A Houston import, this NoMad Indian draws from different regions of the subcontinent for its order-at-the-counter breakfasts and lunches and table-service dinners with wine. Soft lighting, tile floors and a marble bar give it an elegant air.
Ordered the shrimp chutney salad and they got the order wrong. When they finally brought the correct salad the shrimp was raw. I declined to have a fresh salad made. I left the restaurant without lunch after having been there for an hour. I hope I don't get food poisoning from having had eaten half a raw shrimp.

Pondicheri is a lovely place in a great location. It has a very warm and welcoming vibe with a wide assortment of drinks and food. A great place to meet up friends after work or to treat guests.

This place did better when it was new. This time around the octopus kebab was rubbery to taste, the lamb lollipop was more potato and hardly any lamb, and the menu seems to have shrunk significantly. It's too bad because I'd really loved the food on my first visit 3-4 months ago.
