Good if you are a Sandesh fan... Lack of other options... Various type of Sandesh available. White chocolate Sandesh is to die for..

Though this establishment is famous, rather was famous for typical traditional sandesh, but due to modern choco culture they created confusion in fusion sandesh, most of the ingredients being imported. They need to improve on cleanliness in front of the shop as it stinks. Given a choice I would opt another.

It is surely one of the best restaurants in North Kolkata offering popular sweets like Gulab Patti Sandesh, Chocolate Sandesh, Jol Bhara and Notun Gurer Sandesh.

Best sandesh in calcutta. Jol Bhara is the best out of the lot. If you have a big order, don't forget to order from before.

Description
"The green-grilled mishti shop at 56 Ramdulal Street is simply called Nakur, short and (very) sweet. Peering through the iron, glasses perched on his nose, Victor picks up one of their best-selling items, Jol Bhora Norom Pak, gives them a thumbs up, and gulps down the sandesh. From a two-item menu consisting of Kada Pak and Monda back in 1844, to 2010 where Chocolate Sandesh can compete for the number one spot, Nakur has come a long way." -- The Telegraph.
