Oldest branch is in Shyambazar which is more than 100 years old.. Food quality is very good.. I ordered Fish Kobiraji and brain chop... Though the later one is more popular but I didn't like it so much... Fish Kobiraji was excellent.. Ambiance of the restaurant need much improvement...

We were recommended this place as a value for money eatery. The first impression is that it is so. Basic furniture and decor, no frills. Menu has a wide variety but would advise that one should stick to Indian which is definitely better in this place provided you can enjoy the spicy food. Food is good but nothing to write... More

Too much crowded always. But best for takeaway snacks. We ordered Brain Chop, Mutton Afghani and Fish Diamond Kabiraji and all the items were mouth watering!

Last Saturday, we went to Mitra cafe and ordered braised mutton cutlet, but it was late evening and all the mutton items were finished at that time. So we ordered chicken kabiraji and it was awesome. It comes with Kasundi (authentic Bengali pungent mustard sauce). The quantity was also great. The cafe is both clean and tidy—despite having limited space... More

Its just 100 meters walk from my home and I purchased lot of time. Their chicken cutlet and Do payza is awasome. Do not go by ambiance. Taste does not require any ambiance.

It is a dingy hole-in-the-wall on Jatindra Mohan Avenue (extension of Chittaranjan Avenue) on the western side, just south of its crossing with Grey Street (Arabinda Sarani). If you are from...

The quality of food available at Mitra Cafe is very good,but ain't outstanding as projected all the time. The cooking medium is decent,so you don't land up in trouble the next day. The taste of snacks are really very good and they are varied as well. The speciality of this eatery are its famous Brain Chops and various Kabirajis (... More
