The chilli kabab here is the raisin d'être. This place is a landmark in park street. On most holidays there would be a signature line at the gates, with many a happy, foodie group waiting to munch out here. The service is decent and prices are worth it.

This is a beautiful place for eating out. The dishes are good. Interior decoration is beautiful. Chelo kebab is nothing more than kebab with some rice and other toppings. The ambience is great. Due to heavy rush the service occasionally gets delayed. The items are overpriced. If you are a foodie then this place is a must for the sake... More

This has to be one of my favourite places to dine at in Kolkata.The famed 'Chelo Kebab' is nice but do not forget to dig in to the Dum Ki Raan- spiced up tender mutton leg. If you are going there on weekends, be prepared to wait for at least 45 mins. And let me warn you- if you wish... More

Liked the food. Though this used to be great when I had gone there a few years back. It was ok types when I went there last time. The ambiance depends on the time of the day you go there. Not a place to take your kids if as there is a bar which is not exactly separated from the... More

Peter Cat has been a favourite for a long time , however the charm is of it is no more there with increasing eating options day by day and also the change in service. Dishes like Chelo kebab and Chicken Marakesh came cold which was shocking as per Peter Cat standards. With many of the old Service staffs no more... More

Let me share my experience with you at Peter Cat Restaurant situated at 18A, Park Street, Kolkata. • Before you enter you need to enrol your name and number of heads even if you are going on weekdays. Weekends are subject to Luck. • Stewards standing outside the restaurant will then segregate and allot table as per their convenience and... More
