A classy ambience, good location and service. Not for solo eating. Specifically must ask for less salt in food as I found the salt to be on higher side for my taste and it kills the taste of the food.

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

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
