"The green-grilled mishti shop at 56 Ramdulal Street is simply called Nakur, short and (very) sweet. Peering through the iron, glasses perched on his nose, Victor picks up one of their best-selling items, Jol Bhora Norom Pak, gives them a thumbs up, and gulps down the sandesh. From a two-item menu consisting of Kada Pak and Monda back in 1844, to 2010 where Chocolate Sandesh can compete for the number one spot, Nakur has come a long way." -- The Telegraph.

Another mishti institution

Loacted on Ramdulal Sarkar street, you can easily miss it as it lacks any fancy hoardings. But the sweets are divine to taste, too many options makes it hard to pick a favourite. Must visit for Mishtii fans.

If you are in Kolkata and haven't tasted Girish Ch Dey's sandesh (Bengali sweet), your visit to Kolkata is a waste. Truly, this one's a gem! Must visit!

If you are a sandesh lover then you won't get better than this place. It's simply the best and one of the oldest names in Kolkata. Gur sandesh is one of my best and incomparable to others. Strongly recommended for sandesh eating.

I frequently come here to help treat my soul with some lovely sweets and also take some sweets to my home. My mother is a 'die-hard' fan of this sweet shop too. Fine quality, delicious taste.....just relishing for the taste buds. It is indeed one of the best sweet savouries in Kolkata. Worth having a try.

'Nakur' was in my radar for quite some time. And finally I could make it here! Notun gur is the jaggery for the winters and the traditional notun gurer sandesh is available all over Kolkata now, This sandesh is a delight for all with sweet cravings. I have had this sandesh in Delhi (Bikanerwala and Haldiram - both are excellent),... More

Unfortunately, despite being a proud Bengali, I am constrained to say that this is an over-rated 'mishty' shop. This shop has an enormous reputation for 'authentic bengali' sweets , but I don't know, how they are still managing with it. Their products are everything, but 'authentic bengali mishty'. I'm not saying that their sweets are bad or quality is poor,... More
