“Must Go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

Brilliant.... Try anything from the menu and I bet u can't complain. Happy hours between 6 and 8 (1+1 offers) and ladies - enjoy yourselves on fridays (2 free drinks and as many shots as you want). Ask for Pratyush to serve you ... he makes amazing pitcher drinks and a must try is the APPLE INFUSION

“Glamour, all the way.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

If you want an evening or a Sunday lunch to remember , all wrapped in glamour and glory and surprisingly at a fraction of the 5 star price tag, Afraa should be your choice destination in Kolkata. Brainchild of Mrs Madhu Neotia, the able wife of Mr Harsh Neotia, this place is class apart, another exotic gift of this marvelous couple to our city (in addition to the City Centre itself); you have to be there to experience it. Ultra-professional service, wonderful decor, beautiful skyline (get a table near the window), a balcony to relax, exotic spread of food, free wine with buffet and the exquisite ambiance will bowl you over, and your guest(s). Advance reservation is necessary.

“Good food but poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

The food at this trendy Salt Lake restaurant is actually at par with some of the better places in Calcutta. The starter (kebab platter) was nicely done with a good selection. Their menu has good variety and therefore something for everyone (even Pizza for the kids, which also is very good). Unfortunately for this restaurant, their owners have not yet come to realize that whereas food quality is important, so is service quality, and that dining out should be a very pleasant social occasion. The waiters are largely inattentive and appear to be untrained in what they are doing, almost appearing as if they were just plucked off the street, given a uniform and told to serve food. Their knowledge of the menu was spotty. Even the bartender should know (hopefully after this review) that white wine is served chilled, not at room temperature. When this was told to them, they merely took the glass away, chilled the glass (seriously!), and poured the same wine back into it. Finally, it took forever to get the cheque. All in all, this is a fine restaurant that would receive a higher rating if they only understood the importance of prompt, professional, and courteous service to their customers. It can't be too hard to find trained waiters in a city like Calcutta, after all. One final comment — they must find a way of lowering the music. There is a club just one floor below and at times the music in the restaurant is extremely loud and totally destroys the atmosphere, not to mention conversation. It is highly intrusive to guests who wish to have a relaxing and enjoyable dinner to have to put up with pounding bass music from the floor below. Keep the restaurant where it is, but move the club (which BTW belongs to the same owners)!

“Great food at the Deli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Visited the Afraa Deli last evening for dinner. The deli is located at the back of City Centre near the CII Neotia Building. The desserts are just brilliant and one can also drop by to have desserts only.The service was good, the food was excellent and the apple cinnamon crepes with ice cream was to die for! Well worth a visit and good ambience as well!
