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

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

As other reviewers of this restaurant has already pointed out , the food here is cheap and delicious. You can reach here from Central Metro Station or Lalbazar Police Head Quarters. It is a walking distance from both. My suggestion would be to taste Pork in Hamchoi Sauce but tell them to make it less chilli.
