This place is inside a busy crowded market. It provide one of the best Kebabs and rolls in town. Stop by to taste the rolls from the real makers of Kathi Roll.

A legend in Kolkata city for the famous and best Kati Rolls.. I had the tandoori chicken rolls.. the outer roll was crispy and the chicken inner filling was seasoned to perfection. Come here for other good Bengali dishes as well.. This is not the place for ambiance .. this is a place for good traditional food. Surprises may lurk... More

After being recommended this place by family we were keen to check out the home of the kati roll. The food did not disappoint. I had a chicken and paneer kati roll with extra spice. The flavours were incredible so I would definitely recommend, that's if you're not too precious about cleanliness. As I was about to finish my last... More

Probably you can get one of the best Kathi Kabab roll in Nizam situated near New market.It is definitely the oldest place to serve roll. Started way back in 1900 by Sk. Hasan Reza. Just because the Englishmen did not like the oil to touch their hands so he stuck upon a novel idea of wrapping up the kathi kabab... More

We went to Nizam's on the recommendation of a friend who knew Kolkata well ... and it more than lived up to expectations. Acting on our friend's advice, we ordered double egg Kati rolls and they were quite simply divine! The staff seemed a little offhand and the restaurant itself rather basic but once we unwrapped our Kati rolls, all... More

I went to have a roll at Nizam's, which was located right behind my hotel, on checking its recommendation on Trip Advisor. The rolls were literally dripping with oil and were extremely spicy. Perhaps, they made sense to people in the old times. But, I could just not accept the greasy and super spicy taste. Avoidable.

The restaurant is at a very nice location. Accessible and walkable. Ordered for an egg chicken roll. The difference is quite visible. The stuffing is made of mini seekh kababs, and quite tasty. The packaging is what they need to improvise upon. Tasted the biryanis as well. They seemed to be quite ordinary.
