Nice bookstore and gift shop
Aug 2019 • Friends
I enjoyed the books and gifts in this well known bookstore on park street in downtown Kolkata. We wandered the aisles for over an hour and everyone bought something. Helpful clerks looked up books we were trying to find.

Heaven for Book Lovers
Jul 2019 • Solo
This place is a heaven for book lovers. Even in this digital age, the smell of fresh books energises me. It has a huge collection of books, starting from every genre to every category.
It also sells other products like travel accessories like neck pillow, eye mask etc along with stationery items like pens, pencils, notebooks etc.
In short, it is a whole world in itself.

Tea corner at Oxford Book Store.
Feb 2019 • Business
I happened to be in this place after a few years. It was a real pleasant surprise to find a Tea corner at mezzanine floor of the shop. Reasonably priced coffee, Tea and snacks. Good ambiance and equally good service... Surprised to find, unlike CCD and Barista and other coffee shops, the bottled water is sold at MRP, not like other hotels, where they hike up rates or store only expensive bottled water ... Of course the collection of books at store is vast...

Very Good

It is a charming place for book lovers. One can almost feel that books are chosen and kept with love. A flight of stairs to come to landing with ample sitting space to read a book in peace. One can also go up another flight of stairs to reach a coffee shop where one can munch or sip a coffee. Casual visitors should keep around 30 mins of browsing time. Serious book lovers can spend upwards of couple of hours.

Must For Book Lovers
Oct 2018
A abode of ocean among for the book lovers. Very well collection of all books, be it regional, Indian or International. Travel section is a must visit. Few stationery items are also available. On the 1 st floor their is a Tea Lounge, try the Darjeeling tea. If lucky you may witness a book launch program. They need to improve on the storage(bag keeping) section or better install a sensor at the exit.

In Kolkata. Have to go to a book shop. It’s a have to. Amazing collection of titles. Trust Kolkata to love it’s bookstores. Also a gift shop is there. It even has a section for just French titles. Btw I got “Lowlands” a book by Jhumpa Lahiri about Kolkata, no less. Fabulous book but that reviews for Goodreads..

A must visit place in Kolkata
Feb 2018 • Couples
Located in Park street just at the entrance of The Park Hotel, The Oxford book store is having a good stock of books. Even much better than some of the outlets of Crossword and Starmark. The interior is well decorated and the ambience is quite attractive. At the first floor, there is a tea bar. The food Quality is also good.

You must visit the place when you are next in Park street.

Needs an overhaul...
Feb 2018 • Family
I bought a few books here but the selection was not super extensive and things are a bit dusty and dull. Come on guys - you could really make this a much better book store. The kids section is pathetic - they need to improve it or just get rid of it. Almost 1/3 of the floorspace is devoted to small gift/stationery items for sale but it's totally unpleasant to browse as there are people posted there to stare at you to make sure you're not stealing anything - I guess that's why they're glaring at everyone.
Coffee shop upstairs looked uninviting - especially for a Westerner with a sensitive stomach. Overall, disappointing.

A book store with a nice cafe to have tea or coffee!
Dec 2017 • Friends
Had a nice time with my friend when I visited this place during Christmas time. I enjoyed the tea served there with some different spices. Nice place to buy books and catch up with friends at the cafe too. Quite a good area in Park street.
