“The original Biryani hub...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Located opposite Orient cinema hall at Esplanade, this is very highly rated as the original Biryani hub of Calcutta. It is spacious and unlike others one need not stand in a long queue just to find a seat. The attendants are very well behaved and if one is not too worried to spend on the must haves, they are a bit expensive, it could be a nice experience for sure.

“Excellent for Biriani and Chicken Chap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

This restaurant situated at Esplanade of Kolkata. The preparation are very tastey. Biriyani , chiken chap and Resala are the favorite for me in this restaurant. I really the foods but sometimes it is so crowdy so take some times for table . But to take the taste of food waiting in a que is not a matter. Prices are also resonable according to food , also service is ok. I was a frequent customer of this restaurant . In my younger age When I first met my wife Ruma I made my Dinner Here and this is nice memory to me.

“Kebabs and Mughlai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Aminia is quite an old restaurant of the location near the new market, kolkata. It is a good place to have kebabs and mughlai food. The price is reasonable and the waiting time is around 10 mins on an average. It has a take away counter too. Ambiance doesnt come into much consideration as it is an open door kind, no ac, but the fans are pretty capable! Worth visiting for a quick snack!
