Simply delicious

Many of the old but famous restaurants in Kolkata are tiny and still maintaining the old style. Mitra Cafe is one of those. Situated close to Sovabazar Metro Station of North Kolkata (Calcutta), on the main road, it is easily accessible. However, due to the tiny size of the restaurant , one may... read more

We visited this restaurant as a part of our "Heritage tour of Kolkata (Sutanuti)". We started from Shovabazar (Sutanuti Metro Station) and hence visited this place for snacks. It is a small place with unattractive look and furnishing. But the food/snacks they serve are very good and prices are very reasonable.We liked the french toast, which looked like Kabiraji. This...

One of the old time favourites, that has been there for ages, hundred years atleast. Though heard that it was renovated and changed recently. My favourite of this place is Prawn Kabiraji, which is just mind blowing, and fish diamond. All their other items are quite good as well, but these two are top of the mind recall. One of... More

This is one of those Legendary cafes we have got in Kolkata. I am sure every Kolkatan already acknowledges about this cafe and if you are a foodie then you must have visited the cafe. Running an eatery over a 100 years is not a matter of joke. So last month I was fortunate enough to visit the eminent "Mitra... More

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!
