The choice of restaurant for dinner was made by our very well informed friend cum host for the evening. He had considered the type and quality of cuisine apart from the logistics of time and distance. The name 'Kaafila' brought forth visions of a convoy of camels trudging through a desert. As the five of us entered the restaurant on... More

There is just one item here that will sweep you off your feet, The Kandahari Laham. It is a whole rear portion of a lamb, cooked with awesome spices and served in style with flames rising from the meat. Simply awesome.

Well it was suggested by a friend and I had taken my grandmothers with me to treat them. I was skeptic whether they will like it or not. But believe me no one could keep their praises. It's basically a Arab theme restaurant and the restaurant has gone all the length to say so in each aspects, whether it be... More

A chance meeting with a dear cousin from Silicon Valley in Kolkata was reason enough for the celebration. Though visiting Kolkata from far out end of the world to spend quality time with his elderly parents, I found my cousin quite well versed with the local culinary scenario. Going by the host's choice based on his research, five of us... More

Mostly northern / northwestern Indian cuisine. Great use of Indian seasoning and properly cooked and tender lamb dishes, among many others. Recommended.

I keep visiting Kaafila whenever I am in Kolkata and I must say that they haven't disappointed me yet. The title of the review probably would tell you what to order when you are there, yes it is the Kandahar-i La-ham. I visited a week back and I must say the quality was excellent. I can keep going back for... More

Kaafila, located in the City Centre Mall in the Salt Lake area of Calcutta, is probably most remarkable for its decor which, while a little kitschy, does have some retro charm. The place is advertised as North West Frontier Province, but is fairly commonplace Indian "Mughlai" style of food with flat breads aplenty (naans, kulchas, tandooris, roomalis), rice in different...
