The restaurant was really busy and loud the day we happened to go. More importantly the wait staff was not quick. Food was average even though this is supposed to be one of those iconic Kolkata restaurants.

So lets get this upfront; I didn't order their "beloved and famed" Chelo Kebab dish. It wasn't anything personal except I don't eat egg. Instead a colleague of mine that hails from Kolkata said I should take something from their sizzler menu. I opted instead for the grilled chicken sizzler dish and a side order of nan bread. My drink... More

Long queues outside the restaurant is because of Chelo Kebab. Thats whats this place is know for. Everyone have their own opinion and below is mine.

Great food, ranging from Indian to Mughlai to Chinese dishes. Their favourite is Chello Kebab, a must try if you are in peter cat. This restaurant probably started this dish, which comprises of steamed long grain rice with dollops of unsalted butter on top, an egg poach, one portion each of chicken and mutton kebab and a stuffed capsicum.
