"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.

It is not a restaurant at all,but basically a takeaway store selling Bengali sweets.

You have to have a sweet tooth and a taste for Bengali sweets-stuff made from chhana (a milk derivative) to like the wares of this place. But if you do,you'd like the place. Try the 'Jolbhora Talsaans' (untranslatable).

They have not maintained their top status for Sandesh for no reason. A must visit when in town. They have the traditional sweets and also have newer (chocolate sandesh) and seasonal versions (mango sandesh). They have not modernised the shop or opened other outlets as other also very old sweet shops such as Balaram Mullick & Radharaman Mullick Sweets have... More

They sell only Sandesh - a bengali traditional sweet made from milk. Every time I visit or someone arrives from Kolkata, Sandesh from this shop is a must. Its around 120 years old shop still consistent in its quality and with improved varieties. All varieties are very good by themselves but the choclate and fresh mango are the best and... More

This sweet Shop was on top of my list during my 3 day Visit to Kolkata, based on reviews of Trip Advisor. Anyhow I and my family were highly disappointed with the Sandesh, specially the Gur Sandesh, which didn't have any melted Gur inside and was overly sweet. At the same time we had bought a Gur Sandesh from Balaram... More

In my opinion best sandesh in town is available here. Its a traditional century old bengali sweet shop. I have been tasting their sweets since last 45 years and can say they have maintained the same quality. I would suggest with time the look of the shop need to change and some renovation is highly needed.

They serve lots of Sandesh ( Sweets ) which i can say are the best of its kind. The city of Kolkata is famous for Sandesh ( sweets ) but the Sandesh of the shop is unique and different....Must Taste Chocolate Sandesh....taste 4-5 variant minimum....u l love it...

This is arguably one of the very best sweet shops in Kolkata. Both my wife and I like their products very much. Actually, my wife does not like sweets but she actually is a connoisseur of one particular variety prepared by Nakur. Since I am from South Kolkata, I was introduced to this shop by my wife, who hails from... More
