We love this shop very much. The quality of their sweets is unmatched. It is the one of the most famous sweetmeat shops in Kolkata. Some sandeshes are excellent. Particularly, sandesh made with chocolate and date molasses. Chocolate sandesh and jalbhara sandesh. The taste of their sweets are so great that you cannot stop eating. We regularly visit this shop.

One of my favourite joint for Gurer Sondesh, whether varity you would like to try, you would love them all. If you wish to buy them to travel to delhi, mumbai etc, I recommend that you buy Kada Paak Sondesh since they last long. Gurer Sondesh you would get during winters and rest you would get during the year.

Thank Amit S

"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.
