Really sweety.the hot golab jamun and jillapi of the restaurant is too good. I also try the sole-potora and my child like the opera of the restaurant. All are tasty.

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 the risk of your gut health.

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.

We wanted to drop by this restaurant and savor the so called Jalebis for which this is famed for( atleast made out to be). Sure we chanced upon this joint while approaching equally disgusting place called Chowdhury Medical Stores( where in the staff merrily spittoon the red colored pan based saliva with gusto right in the midst of the store...

This used to be the all time fave joint for puris n Indian sweets. I always have memories as a kid asking my father to bring home some of their hot, soft gulab jamuns and their sweet, succulent rossogollas. Their crisp, crunchy, sugar laden hot jalebis are still a favourite. Their chaats are not bad either. Diabetics don't be disheartened,... More
