This is the best time to visit this restaurant because of the Hilsa season. Mouthwatering varieties of hilsa cooked in various styles along with hot steamed rice. The very best of Bangla cuisine.

This is an attractive restaurant which pays a great deal of attention to detail and presentation. The food is interesting, rather different from what most Western travellers would think of as 'Indian food': it includes much fish, which is well cooked, and some good side orders of vegetables and rice.

Bengali taste in food they serve is the essence. Try Hilsha fish paturi and sukto. The ambience of the restaurant is really Bengali. It is worth to visit the restaurant in pairs because the quantity per plate is just good for two.

If one like to enjoy Bengali cuisine with more varieties,he must visit Aaheli and taste the Bengali delicacies.Aaheli restaurant belong to a big business house from West Bengal itself and they know how to prepare Bengali food. Ambiance of the Hotel as well as Aaheli restaurant is wonderful.In my opinion Aaheli is the place,where one can enjoy real Bengali food.
