It might be slightly on the dark side and the waiters hats filthy and their uniforms in need of a good wash or bleaching but the food was excellent although portions very large. I had vegetarian chelo kebab and the tandoori broccoli which I'd never had before and it was very good. The cutlery and plates are cheap and the... More

If you are in Calcutta for longterm and you want to taste something different from India food but not that western, you may go to this place. Its middle east food is amaizing. I really liked it.

This was our 3rd visit to Peter Cat already. My boyfriend practically "grew up" with Peter Cat and told me the price has not changed much over years. This place used to be a lot stricter in terms of dress code but now had relaxed a bit, as my Bf was allowed in with a short cargo pants. Though a... More

We spent 20 minites waiting for a table and had high hopes for this place as it seemed busy and was recommended by others. However, overall i have to say the food was stale, cold and generally disappointing, for all 3 of us there. Chutney and onions left on the table from the people before us, and very old and... More

This is one of the very famous restaurants in Park street, Kolkata especially for youngsters. The place is supposedly almost 100+ years old. It has great ambience, amazing food.. This place can and must be visited more than once. You'll be more than interested in visiting the place again and again. This place has some charm in it. Most importantly... More

Mr.Hansel, many appreciation to the courtesy you showed when we came in for a long awaited family dinner with my 84year old dad. He gave us an table immediately when he saw us coming in with my dad. Guess some of your neighbouring restaurants learn from your and entire Peter Cat team on customer service! Keep up the good job... More

This is one of the older and best restaurants in park street. It is difficult to get a parking space so I prefer a taxi. You can park your car in the nearby lanes. Always pre book your table and reach early as it is difficult to get a table. This restaurant is always full and getting a table is... More
