“Good food and prices for prime location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

I ate here a few times. The food was good (but not brilliant), the service quick and efficient (but not particularly friendly or helpful) and the prices reasonable given its prime location. The only thing that annoyed me was that at the end of each meal, the waiter seemed to hover over us as as if doing so would elicit a bigger tip. Note to waiters: this isn't a very effective means of getting a better tip - good professional and friendly service is!

“Excellent food, dark interior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The food here is excellent, but the interior decor needs updating. Not sure why the restaurants in Calcutta think that keeping the lighting low is chic. Lots of hovering waiters but they are not particularly friendly.

“Decent food and prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

While Kwality can't claim to be one of the best restaurants in Kolkata anymore, the food is still decent and the prices are ok as well. The chicken tikka, the chicken reshmi kabab masala and the rice that we had was pretty good and was a fairly effective quick stop lunch during our travels.

“High time they got their Act together!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Another one of the Park St. restaurants cashing in on the Old Park St. Cheque of Nostalgia. Very average food served by most uncouth staff and managed by ruffians in the name of Managers. Terrible is the actually rating I should have given, but I guess my childhood memories held me back from doing so.

“Great service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

This restaurant at Park Street Kolkata has excellent service and good punjabi / mughlai food. The owners ensure excellent service standards. The food, especially the tandoori cuisine, is very good. Overall, a good experience.
