They serve really good biryani. An aroma which reaches upto your soul. Tried few other dishes too. They are ok kinda. But I didn't like the ambience as it is too too too crowded. And staff has an arrogance which reflects in every action of theirs. For food they deserve 4 star. For rest of things not even 2 stars.

One of the worst places in Kolkata. Just what popularity does to these people. They become arrogant and think that the customers will take whatever they are serving as well as pay double the standard charges.

It was an evening with family members. The Ambiance was excellent . The food and service just perfect. The suggestions made by the staff was good. Overall a very enjoyable experience and even though the place is a little expensive but felt that the overall experience was worth it for every special occasion.The biriyani is awesome and definitely one should...

If you are in Kolkata - make sure you find time for a meal at http://www.arsalanrestaurant.in/. The Arsalan Chicken Kabab is an absolute MUST. If you like mutton, the mutton tikka masala is fantastic. You can't go wrong having at least one meal here.

Brilliant place to satisfy your hunger if you are tired of roaming around the streets and shopping throughout the day. The biriyani is awesome and definitely one should try out this place.

Too much oil was all I can say after I ordered the Special Chicken Biryani. The taste was not also as gud as earlier. Probably the chef had used too much of kewda and oil.

The Bengali style biriyani is quite different intact every city has a different biriyani in India. The Calcutta style... is one of the major contenders. And Arsalan does a good job.

The food is good - though not really consistent - there have been days when they OD on the oil and grease. The good thing is there's a variety of biryanis to choose from and even their veg & egg biryani is pretty decent. They pack for travel and its a favourite for people living outside the city.
