“Bengali Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

Courteous staff, a welcoming manager and good food make for a happy meal. The a la carte as well as the buffet serve Bengali cuisine, slightly adapted for a pan-Indian tastebud.

“Great food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

This is a good place - if you like luchi/aloo dum (like me). But if you are into Malai Chingri/Steamed ilish (like my friends n family), this is the best place ever! The best time to go there is when their hilsa festival is ON (during the monsoons).
Don't miss their desserts - I can go to Oh Calcutta forever just for their kulfi - it's the best I have had anywhere!

“Restaurant that provdes excellent Bengali dishes in Delhi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

I frequently visit this restaurant with friends and relatives for Bengali dishes. Of course, other dishes may also be available here, but I go to this restaurant for items cooked in Bengali style. Baked Hilsha fish is a speciality of this restaurant. The "Lichur Payesh" that is a preparation with fruit Lichi and milk is delicious. The location is adjacent to Intercontinental Park Royal Hotel, at Nehru Place. Though the Restaurant is good for Bengali dishes and has some old photographs of famous Bengalis, but the furnishing inside and the behavior and mannerism of the staff, though good, is far from the typical Bengali style. They could probably put on the typical "Babu Moshai" dress with dhoti and kurta, welcome guests with folded hands uttering "Namashkar", make furnishings with more of north Bengal cane furniture etc. They should also make more sitting arrangements on special occasions like Bengali New Year, Durga Puja festivals etc.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Its a home away from home for residents of Bengal. We went on their recommendation and have been there twice. The best dishes are fish based, Hilsa/Bhetki particularly one in the mustard sauce. Grilled fish was good too. North India (chicken based) dishes are average, luchi (puffed bread) was average. Drinks seemed less potent. Well worth a visit though you must take a Bengali friend along to make the best of it.
