Located just opposite to the Park Street BBQ Nation outlet. The food taste is no doubt good and so are the quantities. Price is expensive but acceptable compared to the brand value. But parking is a genuine challenge across the entire stretch of Park Street. Also no satisfactory waiting lounge if the tables are full.

A friend and I visiting from Australia ate here after looking on Trip Advisor for recommendations. If you're looking for delicious, reasonably priced food, this is it. The licensed restaurant is gorgeous with polite staff and some seriously incredible-tasting food. Our bill for 2 main meals and naan was INR810, and worth every cent.

This is must stop when in Kolkata. Over the years in continues to deliver good food at affordable rates where they service with precision and smile. A very popular joint so please be ready to wait or choose an odd hour for your meals to avoid disappointments.

Some of the best food I have ever eaten! We were only in Kolkata for a few days, and we had to come here. The Chelo kebabs were delicious, and the combination of the kebabs, eggs, and buttered rice was spectacular. Great naan too!

Lunchtime and late evening there are long queues to get into this landmark Calcutta restaurant. But if you go early, there is plenty of room and you don't have to share tables. Pleasant quiet staff. Food is good value, rather than brilliant, and the atmosphere old world. If it is not crowded it is a bit of a haven. The... More

Located literally next door to Flurrys on Park Street, Peter Cat is as much a Calcutta culinary landmark as its famous neighbour. But it doesn’t, as many believe, date back to the Swinging Sixties. Peter Cat originally opened in the middle of the Super Seventies, before which it was known as Omar Khayyam. Is that where the Persian connection came... More

It was a great name for Kolkata foodies for more then 2 decades. Still u can find a huge rush there. Specifically renowned for Chelo kebab. But with the increasing competition & coming up of lot of new authentic restaurants around.. Peter cat could not hold their quality at the best level. It still hits the nostalgia of school &...
