A Dump that Fills-in when Everything else Fails.

Unfortunately a shoddy place, too uncomfortably unclean, yet somehow popular with visitors for its jilebies. Holding our breath we decided to check it out. Surprisingly, some of the much talked-about dishes were indeed good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, yes you can satisfy your gastronomic cravings at... read more

The place is not that clean but the jilebis are awesome and quite busy and famous for the chat items.

Had been to this place for breakfast. Though they have so many items listed in their menu, it seems that they would only provide some items as per their time convenience. The staffs are not very hospitable and would just instruct you! And then their items are very very costly unnecessarily. The place looks shabby and dingy and did not... More

All that left was to slap the owner. Their behavior is beyond anyone can bear. Plus they don't always have all the dishes in the menu (and they also gonna give you an earful about it). If you manage to go pass these manner-less people, you would like a few special dishes like 'Jumbo Kasuri'. But frankly, their attitude would... More

We went to this place because of recommendations on various tourist sites. As mentioned elsewhere, the hygiene is poor. We decided to just sample the jalebis since it was supposed to be their special dish. When we entered, we saw the jalebis being made near the entrance area. When we stepped in, the place was too crowded. The tables were... More

We ended up in this restaurant per chance when we were looking for a place for breakfast. They have good samosas and pooris. I did not care much for the dhokla and tea though. Yes, they can improve on the hygiene front but then, you will remove a pretty big selection of restaurants in India. They have great Bengali sweets.... More

Average place but that rasmalai was fantastic .. Rs. 40 for one plate rasmalai (2 pieces) .. staff not so good .. you have to pay first and then wait for the waiter to get your food .. I just visited the ground floor section of the restaurant ..

Must visit for its Jalebi, Papri Chat and tea. They also have delicious sweets. Century old ambience and furniture. Also, I think the utensils are not cleaned properly but then, I really don't care about it. I am immune to such things. Its the place to visit when you cannot decide where to eat.
