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

My opinion of Nizams restaurant in Kolkata is one of the best and oldest place for fast food and fine dining. The famous food restro is located in the Hogg market in Esplanade area. The delicious and yummy chicken and mutton rolls prepared here are very popular among the locals. The aroma of the meat when one passes by the... 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.

If you are in Kolkata and out for shopping then New Market should definately be on to-do's list and so should Nizam!!..even though it has become a run down place and many people may not find it appetizing from outside..but step in and order all the possible Muglai dishes at dirt price..Go for double/ single paratha rolls, chicken or mutton...

Located behind corporation house in Kolkata, this restaurant has a poor dining. We ordered Chicken Tandoori and Biryani. I don't understand why mostly all restaurants in Kolkata gives one big leg piece plus a big potato in Biryani. It taste sucks! Better you eat from any restaurant!
