When in Calcutta, you cannot not eat here! I love the feel of the restaurant. The dim lights, the booths, the vintage feel - you're transported back to the 1960s! The food is simply fantastic. Very tasty and portions are generous. My favourites are the devilled crabs, beef steak with mushroom sauce, angels on horseback and Fish a la Diane.... More

I am no expert in Indian cuisine but the choices in their menu and the taste was just so heavenly. Came twice cause we could not get enough of it. At one point I just didn't care how much the bill would be. It was that good!

I really liked the interior: it felt like stepping back into time. The food was good but nothing really special compared to what you pay for it.

Went to this place after ages and everything seems just the same - décor, menu and I think even most of the waiters. Very limited cocktail menu but endless food options. Ordered devilled crabs, drunken prawns, garlic toast, fish florentine, chicken tetrazzini and a fish steak sizzler...everything was yummy and just as it should be. The only disappointment was baked... More

You can't go to Park Street and not go to Mocambo's for a meal. Again another institution on Calcutta which manages to be consistent. The food always tastes--delicious! Place gets crowded quick. If you are going in for lunch, try and get there by 12noon. Beautiful ambience, lovely service. The beer in still served in silver tankards. Try the Chicken... More

Having been in Kolkata a few nights we decide to check our a tripadvisor recommendation - and couldn't fault it. The ambience was really good - busy with everyone thoroughly enjoying food and busy in conversation. The food was amazing - I would recommend the chicken Bharat and mango soufflé. Perhaps the service was a little slow but there was... More

After roaming around in the busy street of Calcutta, the moment you stepped in, you'll feel that time freezed and you were back in the 50's. The atmosphere and the ambience simply take your breath away. And the food is excellent too. We ordered Stuffed Tandoori Chicken, Fried Prawn and Mango + Chocolate Soufflé for dessert. Amazing. It worths the... More

Never fails to satisfy. The service by the turbaned and tunicked waiters is nothing short of outstanding. Discrete solicitousness is a finely tuned art and goes well with the old world charm of this place. If Bogart had to dine in Kol this is where he would have take his 'baby'. Had there been a piano he would have asked... More

Mocambo is THE place to have lunch or dinner in Kolkata. Located just off Park Street this is one of the heritage restaurants of the City of Joy. With places like this one understands why Calcutta was so named. The food is excellent. Try everything. Only one thing - do turn up early or be prepared to wait for 30... More
