“Food that melt all the way through your heart!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Food is awesome!
The lasuni paratha and panner makhani combination is deadly!
Service is good!
It is expensive but worth paying for it!
The ambience is nice.
Kid friendly.
Go for it!

“Not worth the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

Went with great expectation, used to be a awesome place long back. This trip to Calcutta went for dinner with family, turned out to be a big disappointment, ordered dahi kabab, paneer tikka, seek kabab and crispy baby corn, all of it turned out to be absolutely average. Dahi kabab was actually leaning towards below average. main course again turned out to be very average, was not sure if it was worth the money, would prefer home food to this any day.

“Amazing food, great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Zaranj features as one of the best places to grab hold of North-western Frontier cuisine in Kolkata. The rich gravies and succulent meats and the piping hot breads remind one of the khansamas of yore. The ambience is average, but the food is superlative and quite honestly that is all that matters. All in all, a must try for any visitor to Kolkata.

“Terrific!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Zaranj aims at giving best quality kababs and other mughlai food and they have stood tall with the strong vigilance of it's owner who does not know to compromise with quality. The first time I went there was on the day of my marriage registration and since then umpteen number of times with my family and friends. Authenticity at it's best. Strongly recommended.
