The biggest attraction is Kabiraji and Cutlet. As all the people are saying the only problem is car parking facility that is not available. It has separate parcel counter also. Price is decent and good courteous staff. I didn't try brain chop as I heard this is also very good.

This is road side restaurant. Location is great. Only problem is car parking facility is not available. This is famous for so many types of fast food. Chicken Kabiraji & Moglai Paratha are the best dishes I have ever had. Price is reasonable. It has separate Roll counter also.

It wasnt my planned visit to Mitra Cafe. I happened to be at Shovabazar and stepped into this small cafe looking for a bite for dinner. But it took me for a surprise with the diamond kabiraji! It is fish fried in a layer of egg and spices while leaving you with the original taste of fish. The look is... More

This place is simply delicious. It's so old, that it's an establishment by its own right. And it makes some great anglo-bengali food. The best I believe in this tradition of great food in Kolkata. And one of the last sentinels of the teadition
