Over-rated !!! Famous for Wrong Reasons !!!

Unfortunately, despite being a proud Bengali, I am constrained to say that this is an over-rated 'mishty' shop.

I love sweets especially Bengali. During my recent visit to Kolkata, I searched hard to find this place and must say that it was worth all the effort. Quite an unassuming shop in the bylanes, ask for directions. Excellent taste and the best varieties of Bengali sweets I ever seen and eaten in my life including Parijat. Beats all competition...

The sweets are made to suit the sweet tooth of 19th century Bangali babu. Same taste, same flavour and definitely not too syrupy. The jalbhoras and the naram paks and the rasogollas and Khajas made on special occasions are too good and mouth licking in nature.

If you have not tasted Parijat then you have not tasted the one of the best sweet in this world. There are two type of persons in Kolkata one who tasted Parijat and one who have not!

I love this place.I visit almost very month. The food is very good so is the staff. I personally think the food is actually better than some other Barbecue Nation in other cities. The only down side of this restaurant is the place is always a bit noisy as its always full of customers and if you turn up during... More

The Bengali sweet shop which is situated near the College Square , adjacent to Bethune College offers a real good variety of sweets. The food was sumptuous and the quality is adorable. The price is on a higher side but still the food is undoubtedly good.

I am a frequent customer of GirishNakurs' Sandesh. Each variety is different and exscellent. I dont understand why the Bengalis' are leaning towards Ice Cream and Pastry as desserts leaving behind such mouth watering deserts of Bengalis' own. Pastries are nothing but a heap of flours and sugars. Most of the Kolkatans, specially the South Kolkatans ahve never tasted these... More

I have been visiting this place ever since I can remember - nothing has changed over the past half a century. The Kacha Golla, Jolbhora, Nolen gur, kesar sandesh, chocolate sandesh - all incomparable. The chocolate sandesh the first ever fusion of Indian (more specifically Bengali) with a foreign flavour. The recent innovations though don't impress, I guess I am... More

This is one of "The best bengali sweet shop" in kolkata. If you are looking for kacha golla, no one can beat them to it. I regularly buy sweets for special occasions and the sweets are delicious.
