Had a disappointing dinner. Dishes weren't flavorful enough. The mutton was nearly inedible, all gristle and fat and no meat. Restaurant was empty. No beer/wine license. Mandatory 10% service charge. All in all, not a good experience.

This restaurant was recommend to us by several different guides and drivers. Since we were staying at the Peerless Inn we decided to try it. Incredible. We sampled a variety of items from the menu. The flavors were layered and complex. The spicy dishes were full of flavor and not so spicy that you couldn’t taste anything else. There was... More

I had dinner here with a colleague last week. Aaheli has a great ambience and good service. It is a quiet place, nice for a family or business dinner. The food is truly superb. This place serves delicately flavored traditional Bengali cuisine. The fish and lamb were particularly good. This restaurant has a bar as well. It is a little... More

The food is good, the portions are decent and the service is ok. The price is ok for a hotel restaurant but there are better deals outside. It a Bengali restaurant so fish and mutton reign supreme on the menu with some vegetarian plate and only one chicken plate.

Located in Peerless Inn, Esplanade, Kolkata. Fantastic experience high quality Bengali cuisine with varieties of Veg & Non-Veg. delicacies will definitely make you so full that you'll have no room to walk even. Even the decor, the design and the waiters are also wear Bengali costumes. I opted for Special Bengali Non-Veg Thali with few Ala-cart dishes. But when food... More

Aaheli is famous as it is a part of the prestigious Peerless Inn. The ambiance and the look of it is surely impressive and the posh feeling doesn't take too long to sink in.
