"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's a heaven for mishti lovers, their strength is varities of Sandesh and they master in that, they are not into Doi and fried mishti. I always prefer to take from here whenever there is a special occasion in my house.

It is not a restaurant but a sweet shop.Their JALBHARA sandesh is very reputed and tasty. But the taste has gone down over the years. Earlier it was more tasty and the texture/colour was different.

Its a Paradise for sweet lovers, all sweet items are made really good, one has to come on time otherwise things become not available, pricing part is too heavy to handle.

This is a typical "Old Bengal Patisserie", only they don't make any cakes or pastries but Pure Indian sweets mostly made from cottage cheese. These sweets are healthy and light on the stomach. They also have flavored yoghurt. During the very short winter in Calcutta they use Palm jaggery instead of sugar and these sweets are pure bliss. The place... More
