Best cutlets and kabiraji place

This is one of the oldest fast food shop in North kolkata. Decoration is not so good but I can tell food quality is really good.ols try fish and chicken kabiraji. Also mutton cutlets are really great. Service is quick but little crowded. Price wise I can say cheap.

Items like fish kabiraji or chicken cutlet are extremely popular across generations of customers. The management of Mitra Cafe has the sagacity to meet the emerging customer requirements. They...

Mitra Cafe is one of the oldest cafeterias in North Kolkata just adjacent to the Shobhabazar Metro station. It is very famous for the Prawn Kabiraji, Brain Chop, Fish Chop & Mutton Chop. Besides this there are hosts of other items to savour. Only disadvantage which i feel is that it is very congested and the ambience does not help... More

Mitra Cafe embodies all that is Bengali, all that we are losing fast and all that is part of Bawarchi / Brit infused Bengali dishes which has withstood the taste of time. Fish Fry, Mutton Cutlet, Braised Cutlet, Mutton Kabiraji, are some fo the items from around 30... More

Bengali are one among the front runners when it comes to fast food. And this heritage restaurant is one among my favorites. What a taste and value for money. People might argue it is not the same taste as few more years back, but still they are the bests. I love the kabirazi, mutton chops, fish cutlets. Really mouth watering.... More

If you love things like Chop & Cutlet, you will definitely love this place. MITRA CAFE located near the shovabazar metro station. I had been there on numerous occasions. My all-time favourite was their Fish Diamond Kabiraji & Fish Diamond Fry. The Diamond Kabiraji had a nice crunch, even though they aren't too hot, and melt in your mouth. Fish... More
