I visited the place with my wife last Sunday and we were really impressed. The jungle atmosphere was as expected, interesting; but the food was really awesome too. We were half full, so we ordered only Basamati Rice and Raan with Chicken Shorba and Jaljeera. The Raan was just awesome! Shorba and Jaljeera was also good. The time to prepare... More

We had food here with our family. We had come in earlier on and spoken to the team and they ensured that all services were in order and everything was smoothly executed, They also ensured that one of my uncle who is a strict vegetarian had food made especially for his palate.

Machan is located in the Mani Square mall and is undoubtedly a "Must Visit" restaurant. The entire decor is that of a Jungle theme with some dummy animals thrown in for good measure. Prices are in line with any fine dining outlet and the starters plus entrees are all very tasty and scrumptuous.

Went there for a lunch one fine afternoon. Loved the ambiance (lighting could be a little brighter). Waiters and stewards dressed in a animal skin costumes. Good food, quick service, helpful staff, good recommendations for dinner. Good portions as well. Will visit again, once I'm back in Kolkata.

Well the specialty group restaurants are know to offer some of the best dining experience in Kolkata but Machan was something I stayed away till recently. Probably due to the creepy (I later found it actually enjoyable) environment. It is good for something after all. Contrary to many would believe I feel this place server some best Biryani (Mutton) you... More
