“For an special meal in Calcutta”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

The food is really really good though it can be quite expensive. This can be one option for a special meal in Calcutta. Take a taxi to go there, as it's not quite easy to get to.

“Overrated”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

This might have been a good restaurant when it started, but now its become a chain of restaurants and there's no quality control. The ambiance and service were very good and that's what the two stars are for. Some of the dishes were inedible - we sent back the mochar ghonto because it was inedible and they were gracious enough not to charge. But even the other seafood dishes were not up to the mark - they seemed to have been cooked by the chef's assistant or an amateur as the flavors were not balanced. The waiter told us the hilsa was from Bangladesh and it didn't taste or smell fresh. Overpriced, overrated and not worth your time.

“hangout with friends”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

To be honest, I had a mixed feeling after visiting this place.
Food price is very high--specially I did not understand the reason why they charge so much for ordinary "Begun bhaja, Patol bhaja and alu bhaja"
The main courses are really good--boneless ilish was just awesome.
Desserts were also superior.
But please try to avoid the "kacha amer sarbot"--it was just tasteless.It was os salty that we could not even have 25% of it. We complained and after that they provided fresh glasses but the inside material was just the same. Probably they prepare it like that only.
Ambiance and staffs are very polite

“Team Lunch”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Very Good service. The set lunch (I believe newly introduced) is Real Value for money. Varied and apt Bengali food . When specifically requested for, they came forward and explained the menu/mail ingredients in various items. It would have helped if they had - explained what all are coming and menu/ingredients before hand - especially for a non Kolkata guests. The food is probably a little oily, but then I persume that is how the Bengali food is..

“Wanted to have Bengali food experience”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

We were in Kolkatta during transit and wanted to taste Bengali food. Surveyed the web and found this restaurant serving good authentic bengali food. Its a upmarket restaurant, but a very good set menu deal was going on, which gave an opportunity to taste and experience many dishes. The food was good and we liked the overall experience.

Overall a good value for money if you want to sample Bengali food.
