My husband and I loved Nizams rolls.we grew up with the Late Momin Chacha taking cae of us with his personal attention to our pteferances. After him, we continued to patronize it but alas our last visit in September 2014 was so alarmingly poor that we may not venture there again. I ordered for the usual Chicken Kathi kebab and... More

I had to try this place out, it's a very famous snack bar in Calcutta. The kathi rolls are excellent.

What can you say about the inventor of seekh roll? Started visiting this place during college days (late seventies) when budget was low and appetite high. Was extremely lucky and am thankful to my college mate who insisted on visiting here. The old charm remains even though ownership has changed. Started off with what else - the seekh roll. Followed...

They claim to be the inventors of Kathi roll, and if you are in Nizam's, that should be an automatic choice on your platter. The soft chicken/mutton flavours give your taste buds a variation. Also try out their Biryani and Kulfi. Great food at a reasonably low price.

Nizam is situated near new market area. Food quality is good with variety of options. You will find both veg and non veg food.

Their Dal Makhani is different from what we get in North India. Its very thick. Be careful of the quantity. In packing the waiter gave us just half plate for Rs 100 (+5 for container). We had to fight with the cashier to give a decent quantity as per the price charged. Their tandoori rotis & paneer roll were good.

Loved eating at Nizam's. We went here three nights out of the five that we stayed in Kolkata. Food quality was top notch. The best tandoori roti I had in India. Great chicken tikka. Pretty much every dish was spot on. This place is no-frills, but clean. You can watch them cooking the kebabs and making parathas in the kitchen.... More

Placing the order might look tricky but it's quite efficient. Food is very good. Home delivery option is also there and anyone living around Defence Colony knows how many times it has become the only option for ordering food.

Nizam's can still hold its own as far as Kati Kawabs go. Not exactly the cleanest or most hygienic eatery, it has upheld the "to die for" taste of its Katis. And we have had these rolls in places as far as New York but they just do not compare.

Put Nizams on your list of places to visit. I have been eating in restaurants recommended by Rick Stein in the book about his search for the perfect curry. I just had a snack of mutton kathi roll for lunch and it was delicious: true value at 60p (English).
