This was our 3rd Taj Hotel that we have stayed in, in India and it was absolutely first class. We were greeted at reception by an extremely professional, helpful and courteous staff and were made to feel like we were in a friend’s home rather than a hotel. Priyanke,Simran & Debojyoti could not have done more for us. As with the other Taj hotels, the meals were great; a huge variety of dishes. Spicy food was a big concern for one of us, but the staff went over & above to ensure that we both had meals we could (and did) enjoy. A big thank you to Manisha for her great assistance. The room was great spacious with a view over Koltata. We booked a driver (Sambhu) to show us Kolkata and he did a great job. Well worth doing. EVERY staff member at the Taj were immensely helpful, courteous & (genuinely) friendly but we must give an immense thank you to the awesome Smriti for all she did for us. Would we recommend staying at the Taj Bengal ?? Absolutely.

This is the most iconic property in Kolkata. The look and feel of this hotel are grand and memorable. If you come to Kolkata you must visit this property for the sheer experience of luxury, elegance and tranquil. The entire lobby looks classy and elegant. Rooms here are well designed and have an influence of Bengali culture and Anglo Indian feel. Bathrooms are huge and well designed. The view of the old Howrah Bridge from the room and the soothing view give you a relaxing feeling when you get up in the morning. The room service too is exceptional. And not to forget their evening adda of chai which is served with jhal muri. Sonagaon is the best fine dining restaurant in the country without a doubt. The kakori kebab here can beat any place in the country even the famous places like dumpukht. While their Northwest frontier food is mind-blowing, their Bengali food is even better. I tried their zamindari thai and trust me it will blow your mind. You can’t get more authentic Bengali thali than this.
Their Chinese restaurant is another iconic place which serves the most amazing Chinese food in Kolkata. And their all-day dining cal 27 might not have huge spread but the quality of food is brilliant. And not to forget their bar, a railway style lounge serving amazing cocktails. Souk is their Mediterranean restaurant and definitely one of the finest in the country.
A trip to Kolkata is incomplete if you don’t visit Taj Bengal and dine at their restaurants. As they call it – “Dining at Taj Bengal is a sheer delight to the palate with a variety of cuisines on offer in stunning settings. Connoisseurs from Kolkata and the world over savor the offerings of our award-winning fine-dining specialty restaurants. "

An excellent stay, wonderful hospitality and facilities. The rooms were great (even though we were annoyingly upgraded to a club room and then downgraded again!) and we enjoyed the bath menu in particular. The spa, pool and gym facilities were also excellent and in very good condition. Even though we found a dish far too spicy at the café (the Kadai Vegetables), the hospitality of Vijaybabu and the fact that he didn’t charge us for it was good compensation. The driver service (and our excellent driver/guide Vishnu) was very good too. Thanks to all who made our trip to Kolkata so memorable.
