“Drive in Cafe cheap and cheerful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

A great spot for lunch, vegetarian. Good tasting food. And it's pretty quiet in the busy Middleton Street.

“Very yummy, great location and excelent bookstore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

I really liked this restaurant and I found Kolkata a complicated city for vegans, so this place was nice.

They have an eclectic choice of things to eat and an excellent bookstore at the back of the patio. Don't forget to check it out! We spent hours in the bookstore after our meal.

“Shabby!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

God only knows what they're trying to do with this amazing property at such a superbly strategic location! They have a little bit of everything - Used Car Dealership, Cafe, Bookstore, Etc. Everything about this place is shabby, shady, unhygenic, unwelcoming . . .

We have tasted some veg speciality. The food was hot & tasty. You can try once. Drive Inn is situated on the junction of little russel street & middleton street near maidan metro station.
