Awesome Food

Machan offers awesome meal in their restaurant at Mani Square Mall in Kolkata. The grilled starters are yummy. The typical Indian delicacies have authentic spices and traditional taste. The ambience is very nice and lovely.

Visited Machaan for a business lunch on a weekday. Not surprisingly we (four of us) were the only customers there. On entering from the bright sunlight outside, it took a while to get adjusted to the really dark interior of Machaan. The lay-out is quite forest like. We were given a table on the upper level.....sort of like a tree... More

Jungle in a Mall. Well that is what Machan is in Mani Square Mall. The place is advertised as a restaurant with slow cooked north Indian delicacies. Nothing of the sort. Standard north Indian food with ornamental names. Very high on decor. Kids upto age of 10 will be delighted. As robot monkeys jump from tree to tree inside the... More

My kids insisted to visit here as they heard about this restaurant. Sure decoration is good with jungle environment. Ambiance was nice. Kids were happy to see. They serve north Indian and Bengali food. Food quality we found average and price wise expensive.

The restaurant had a jungle theme which not only included the decor and sound but the waiters were dressed accordingly. Food was promptly served . We specially enjoyed the " kadhahi jhinga" which were succulent prawns in a very nice freshly ground coriander flavoured gravy with masala kulcha. The desert was unfortunately not up to the mark. Good place for... More
