Classical

Modern restaurant with classical touch of bengali culture. Interiors of the restaurant was great and brace up for a true food delicasy. Taste of the food was good and chit chat with chef also add up to the eexperience.

we went to celebrate our first marriage anniversary but returned totally disappointed. We opted for Mahabhoj tali. Though the presentation was very good, we were dumbstruck to taste the food. Except the dal and the bhaja. it was just tasteless.The Prawn was not fried at all and it was not fresh and even Hilsa curry did not have any taste.... More

Perfect bengali dish. Fish lover should go there. The bengali thali is awesome. I went with the family on weekend and enjoy it.

The attention to detail and the decor is very impressive. Food was very interestingly prepared and presented. It is expensive, more so than I expected but was extremely pleased with the service, quality and presentation. Would strongly recommend if money is not a big issue.

It is a true Bengali food delight, all waiters are dressed in Ethnic Bengali. Lacks variety, Buffet and new offerings as compared to its nearest rivals. I visited AXIS Mall outlet quite a time - I was told on a special day that they will not take guest after 9, though there was a lot of place still vacant -... More

They have served meal called the 'Mahabhoj' I think that is quite an extraordinary experience. However, you need to be really hungry to do justice to it.
