Best Chinese joint

There foods are simply super. The best Chinese in Kolkata probably. Though the hotel location is not so good but the food are real authentic Chinese. Their dumpling soup and chilli pork are just awesome. If you are fan of Chinese food don't miss this joint.

Went to this place with a friend for lunch one day last week. Very good Cantonese food is what you get and that too at quite cheap price.Run by a family. Interiors are nothing to write about but quality and quantity are very good. Go there once and enjoy,if you like Cantonese food

This place is a such a hidden treasure which many of us will never notice or even know about. Definitely not most of the people who live in Calcutta will ever opt for this place when it comes to Chinese cuisine. You enter into the place through a narrow alley, not very glamorous looking entrance or decoration. Things seems to... More

This is a hidden gem located in clumsy old chinatown of kolkata, very close to central metro. If you don't give a careful look, you will not find it. With an old chinese interior with red tables, plastic plates and chopsticks. Their pork items are awesome. Rice Noodles and fried rice are also good. More over it is very tasty... More

This a small restaurant located in the Old Chinatown area. The interiors are very modest. The food is decent, but nothing extraordinary. The portions are large though and the prices modest.

Round Tables to eat on , Round stools to sit on. Paint peeling of the walls.Small windows with bars. And in a building which is over a hundred year old. Tung Nam is an authentic Chinese Eating House. In other words, Kolkata's only Chinese Dhaba. The atmosphere is surreal as the food is mind blowing. Wanton Soup, chilli garlic fish... More

Technically Tung is east and Naam is south- tung naam means south-east chinese or popularly known as cantonese cuisine. Probably the only authentic cantonese restaurant in Kolkata. Its located just beyond the blue colored KIT building, near poddar court. If you step in this joint, you may find it as not a restaurant, but somebody's house. The food is prepared... More
