We ordered the Tom Yum Soup and the sea food platter along with the dim sums...The food was amazing, presentation was fab, ambience and overall decor was good at the Bay of Buddha, lovely atmosphere. But the service standards is something that needs to be looked into... it wasn't bad but wasn't good enough...

Very good food and their pizzas are amazing, they have a decent bar but its highly priced for a city like Pondy. they should work on improving the service levels else its a great place eat with a lovely view as they are on the beach road.

We stayed at The Promenade in March and it was such a beautiful, relaxing experience. The location is fabulous and we could watch the sun rise from our room. The view of the ocean was spectacular.
