Food was amazing, our server patiently explained everything about the food options and recommendations to us, and we could not have enjoyed our evening more.

One bottle of Kingfisher Ultra arrived flat and was u drinkable but they insisted on it being paid for or they would have got a 5* review. The food is expensive, over 4,000 Rs for 2. Chicken Nawabi starter (think Tikka but more moist with yoghurt drizzling from the chicken) was delicious. Lamb Rogan Josh was on the bone and... More

The building is very old and of British era. The restaurant is having two sections - one is the Indian section and the other is Chinese and Thai. I... More

A must visit place in Calcutta to get that fine dine experience for Indian food. It has the charm of the classic mid work day meal and a sorted dinner. Tried few things off the menu, Kali Dal and Mushroom sabzi were good. But the breads are phenomenal. Laccha Paratha and Mirchi Ka Paratha being my favorite picks for this... More

We planned for a business meeting with team @ Zaranj as I could recall it being a nice place 3 years back. To my surprise, the place looks dead with almost dead staff. We were the only people in the restaurant (last time there was a que outside). The food tasted nice if you like some tiny pebbles in your... More

This is a restaurant that has been a part of Kolkata for ages and still remains one of the best for North Indian cuisine. I have been on a catch-up trip in Kolkata and visiting restaurants that are close to my heart but did not get a chance to visit in recent years. I will start with the decor, it... More
