Delicious Home Cooking

Had been there in previous year. Went there twice this visit. Really good home cooked food. Very reasonable prices. Simple decor. Restaurant clean but toilet could be improved.

These guys serve ORGINAL Authentic Bengali cuisine with homely touch. Food is of top notch quality in terms of taste 5 out of 5 Presentation will give them 3 out of 5, this is because they serve food in small earthen wares-not the right sizes for serving a lunch/dinner--Too small & filled to the top. Place is small & cozy--as... More

Most of the accompaniments alongwith the thali were just not served. Servings were almost invisible. we went with kids and the food was delayed endlessly. Service was the worst ever.

Should be rated no. 1 for Bengali cuisine. Travelling from Delhi , and longing for Typical Bengali led us through references to this quaint , cosy and family run restaurant in a house. Ordered the paturi, and Daab chingri ( shrimps cooked inside a coconut) Dohi Bengan ( brinjals cooked in curd) . These dishes were as original and tasty... More

If you are looking for tropical Bengali food in an environment to match, head for Kewpie's. It's clean and comfortable and the food is delicious. It's a traditional Bengali home converted into a restaurant and the walls are adorned with great local art. The service if friendly.

Our hosts in Calcutta had suggested that we partake authentic Bengali food here. It is quaint little restaurant tucked away in small lane. In fact it was the residence of Mr dasgupta who started this restaurant after his wife Kewpie passed away. She was an expert cook and that is how this restaurant came about. They have Thali which comes... More
