Been there recently, wasn't disappointed.

I tried the beef biryani this time, ordered two plates of it and ate one and a half plates with chicken butter masala. Before that I started with a beef roll, it was nothing out of the ordinary. The place is cheap and good for people who want the Biryani and mughal cuisine at cheap prices. Ended it... read more

This is a very friendly restaurant in the New Market area of Kolkata. It is very spartan inside but is renowned for their Katie Rolls. I had an egg/chicken ( there are loads to choose from) and at 50 rupees was good and satisfying. Will certainly visit again if I am in the area.. Tandoori roti's are lovely at 10... More

Kolkata Street Food hopping isn’t complete without visiting the chain of restaurants in New Market area. The famous Kathi Rolls, the delicious stuffing wrapped in Roti that is now found in every city is said to have got its life in Nizam’s Restaurant on Hogg Street in New Market, Kolkata. Though there have been many variations in the Kathi Rolls... More

Went back to Nizam's after almost 29 years with memories of great food. I was disappointed. The food was oily and heavy and has lost its original flavours. A great pity as this was one of the highlights of good ole Calcutta.

I guess I really was on a food quest in Kolkata and certainly couldn't have left without a visit to Nizam's and savoring their famous kathi rolls. Tucked away in busy New Market area, getting here is a challenge, but certainly to be undertaken. The service is swift and the rolls are delicious. A must visit and worth the visit.

Biryani and Kabab was really good, but the place is quite average. Cleanliness is average, not a place to visit with family.

When a restaurant says they invented kathi rolls, you dont take that litely. Great food. Really cheaply priced. Worth a visit!

I am going to place for since 1995. I have lost count for how many times I have been there. I have been there when it used to be a restaurant.

Went here twice in our three day visit to Kolkata, purely for the Kathi roll. Amazingly delicious. Must try when in Kolkata! The paneer biryani was also sublime.

Have been enjoying Nizam's kathi rolls for ages & they've been consistent-a tasty filling & cheap eat; this time was an utter let down! The parathas were oily, the 'kebab' was just dry chicken tikka bits, no flavour, fat pieces of green chilli, very little lime; have had better 'rolls' in Delhi/Mumbai; will think twice before going back there!
