Description: "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.

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.

since it is indeed heavenly, this place is one I swear by when I talk about sweet shops of Kolkata. they are the best in terms of quality of chhena they use in the mishti. you need to visit them in a gang and then taste all the sweets in small portions.
