Description: "The green-grilled mishti shop at 56 Ramdulal Street is simply called Nakur, short and (very) sweet. Peering through the iron, glasses perched on his nose, Victor picks up one of their best-selling items, Jol Bhora Norom Pak, gives them a thumbs up, and gulps down the sandesh. From a two-item menu consisting of Kada Pak and Monda back in 1844, to 2010 where Chocolate Sandesh can compete for the number one spot, Nakur has come a long way." -- The Telegraph.

I found the shop as one of the finest sweet providers. They have a huge variety of sweets and all are mouthwatering. I had to stand in a queue to buy when I visited the shop for the first time. The second time we took a table to taste some different sweets and really those were tasteful.

We Bengalis, take pride in our kind of sweets - specially Sandesh and Rasgullas. This Girish and Nakur shop is said to have invented Sandesh in good old days. The shop exists in the same place for more than hundred years. The taste of sweets, specially Sandesh, prepared by them is out of the world and no word is enough to describe the taste. Every year, in Kolkata, we have poles to determine the best sweetmeat shop under different catagories and this shop owners must have become tired of winning first prizes in such poles. I would reccomend every tourist, willing to taste true Bengali sweets to visit this shop, located right beside the famous Bethune School for Girls.

Bengali community cannot live without having at least one sweet a day.Each meal they love to finish with sweets right from the B'fast. That could be the main reasons of such varities available in each and every shop around the " City Of Joy ". Girish & Nakul sweet shop is famous for different kinds of " sandesh " especially their Nalen Gur (a special kind of molasses made out of date tree extract) items. These sweets will melt in the mouth in no time but will leave its essence for an hour. No Swiss or Dutch make chocolates can even replace that heavenly taste !!!
