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

Living in Essex, we have Indian restaurants every 100 yards or so, but this one is really quite special, the attention to detail is fantastic, sorry to say, we ate here twice it really was that good.

Great food and excellent ambience with a great price. Out of the 3 hotel restaurants that we tried this one had, by far the best price and the best food. We will go again if we have a chance.

Once upon a time Zaranj used to be our favorite family dine out....we went there again and again just to have the Amritsari fish kababs, which used to be wholesome pieces of fresh Bhekti fish. Sadly, the portions and taste, of everything that we ordered, have changed. The charm is not there anymore. We feel sad and wish the management... More

This is one of the best places in Kolkata for Kebabs & Tandoori food. Even though a bit pricey, the quality is excellent and the portions are a nice size. The place is walking distance from Esplanade !!!! A must visit if u happen to be in Kolkata, and want a taste of authentic kebabs !!!

What we witnessed was something to leave sour taste for long time. There was a cockroach in the dish fried along with Paneer tikka. One of our kid puked when he came to know that there is... More
