A real Bohemian experience!

I went with my friend to this restaurant in Kolkata.......after being in India for 6 months, curry starts to lose it's appeal! What a nice place: small, intimate with the most interesting fusion Indo/Mediterranean menu. I had the steam fish with a Bengal Berry jus, basmati rice and julienne... read more

A highly exaggerated place, pricey and with a clustered menu. Decor is very nice but the food isn't worth a revisit.

Chef Joy is my favorite !! His versatility in the kitchen is unparalleled !! The fish and prawn concoctions in sauces one has never had before are simply divine. Even his pork and pizza preparations are enjoyably different Located in Ballygunge and with additional seating in the newly expanded property makes it very convenient to visit A must visit restaurant...

The new menu in Bohemian is absolutely cutting edge bengali cuisine . Using local and sustainable products chef joy has designed a remarkable menu which involves the esential bengali ingredients with an awesome touch on presentation . The cumin smoked fish with cumin smoke wafting around was delectable and so was the cauliflower dhoka which reminded me of fresh homemade... More

There is so much advance publicity (mainly word of mouth) that we just had to visit this restaurant. We have been there three times, and each time the food has become less tasty. The portions have also become smaller, especially the mutton dishes. The service staff are not particularly well-trained and are not really attentive.

Marrying cuisines, if done write can be an experience worthy of heaven. While not quite that, Bohemian makes a decent attempt. It marries Bengali food with experiments from around the world. So you'd have a steak in Bangla sauces and panna cottas with tobacco infusion. But they pull them off, as other worldly as they sound. I for example tried... More

During the last few years whenever I visited Kolkata, my friends there had asked me to try out this place which according to them was refreshingly different. I was told that the menu has imaginative experimentation of fusion with specifically traditional Bengali cuisine. Though the concept looked extremely interesting, I could finally visit this restaurant only during my trip in... More

Food here is very out of the box.It is hard to imagine the menu.Its a fusion of Benali and Continental cuisine.All the items we had were just too good.The crab item was simply out of this world.I would recommend everyone to atleast go once there.

Just amazing - they experimented with Bengali food - fusion of Bengali and Continental food, and some amazing outcome. Most of their items are amazing - you need to keep on trying each of them till you arrive at which is the best one. I remember going to this place first time just after it opened, and has been a...
