Good biryanis

This place has developed a cult of its own since the last few years. It offers rich biryanis and mughals eats. They have non AC seating for regular Irani fare as well as an AC sit down venue. Worth the money. The food is good, the gravies are a bit rich and spicy. Best with family or friends.

Arsalan has to be one of the finest biriyani centers in Kolkata. Open up till midnight, this pocket friendly restaurant is a perfect foil for an evening of dine-out! The Chicken Biriyani and the Mixed raita combination is awesome but there are other attractions as well. Chicken Hariyali Kabab, Mutton Kassa, Chicken Chap and the sweet dessert Phirni all add...

Though the ambience is ordinary and space is limited but the prime location, reasonable rates and mouth watering biryani compensates for it. You would love all their dishes.

Loved all the dishes I had here. The kebabs were more than awesome. They have special flavors which you won't find elsewhere in Kolkata. Biriyani is above average, though not awesome. There were three of us and we ordered an average quantity of food but found that it was a lot of food. We had to pack some stuff and... More

My wife and I visited for lunch. The restaurant was packed with locals who obviously know the quality of their food. Staff were friendly and guided us Aussies on the best dishes. I would recommend this restaurant to tourists and locals alike.

I went to Arsenal at Park Street so many times. Their food quality is very good and the prices are also reasonable. I suggest this restaurant.

Certainly not A meal dined in style. But forget the calories, the health quotient, embrace the crowds and the confusion, and tuck into a meal that will leave you satiated and wanting for more!

Biryani is the first word when I go to arsalan. And then some kabab and chaap. Amazing taste. Too crowded the ambience if I talk about. Otherwise their food has some unforgettable taste.
