We had Bengali cuisine, and the quality of food was excellent as well as authentic. The ambience was very good. Service was not disappointing, either. We ordered sona moog dal(yellow lentil),topse fry, assorted vegetable fry(eggplant, parwal and potato)baked hilsa, mutton. The pan (betel)was equally excellent

The food here is really good! I had the thali and thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful! But the price was a little high and the atmosphere nothing special.

Food taste and portion size just average. The staff is wanting to just sell food without a concern for your taste. Very costly with very average taste.

Had one meal during a business tour to the city. Loved the Bengali food, the staff was in traditional Bengali dresses. Rates are little on the higher side but food is authentic. Fish wrapped in banana leaf & served mustard sauce was excellent. Every body relished the food & fish in particular.

Had food here with colleagues and though the ambience was authentic the food was highly priced but nothing of an extraordinary taste. Was a little disappointed.

Having visited India many times disappointed by a restaurant that was recommended but it did not live up to expectations. The thali was overpriced and under spiced, in fact just bland. Not worried but advertised as licensed, this wasn't the case and some very odd choice of juices offered.

food is ok but over priced. It may be authentic alright but it too but the thali was too much for a single person and they would not let you share it.
