Traditionally clad servers and an amazing ambience to boast of. On one of the two times I visited, I was having vegetarian meals (by choice) and was very reluctant to have vegeterian Bengali meals...

Cant pick which of the 3 I liked more. Also, when it comes to food, it would be difficult to pick what I liked the best- the alu dum from the veg selection or the Fish or Prawn...Everything was really good and yet not dripping in oil.
