This is a simple, unpretentious restaurant that serves Indo-Hakka food. For those who may not be familiar with Indo-Hakka (I wasn't, until fairly recently), it's what resulted from the migration of Chinese to India. So it's a sort of fusion, but not the sort of hifalutin' "fusion cuisine" that high-end restaurants so often try, and so often fail, to pull off. This is people's food, the kind that's served by street vendors in India, especially (as I understand it) in Kolkata. It's simple, it's unpretentious, it's hearty, the portions are quite large, and it's excellent. (It's also often quite spicy, as you might expect.) And the service, every time I've been there, has been friendly and gracious. If you're looking for an elegant place to take a date or impress a business associate, this probably isn't it. (For those purposes, you might try Coromandel, which is more or less around the corner, and is also very good.) But if you like either Indian or Chinese food, you shouldn't miss the chance to see what happens when they come together.
