“This is a very good choice”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

A very good restaurant, Nice, clean, licensed - and best of all a variety of the best Indian kitchen ... go for a lunch, and a break from the hectic and very hot streets, where traders of all kinds try to sell you everything ... very good and spicy food

“Great Multicuisine restaurant”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

I have eaten at Zaranj several times. My experience as far as food is concerned, has always been the same. Other things have given me different experience at different visits.

Let me first talk about the food. The food is simple outstanding. It is served within reasonable time. For those who are from kolkata, would find it to be costly but those who have been to delhi or mumbai, would find it reasonable. A typical dinner for four adults, without alcohol, would cost you around 3000 bucks in Indian Currency. Pick up any item with paneer (cottage cheese) and you would love the way the chef has made it delightful. The indian spices, the cream, the use of butter and milk, the softness of cheese, you would simple love it. Dal (curry) is another item you must try. There are lot of choices in bread. I suggest you don't order all your bread at one go.

Now let me other things.

Location - Even though I am from Kolkata, it was difficult for me to locate it at one go. Though centrally located and established on the main road, the entrance and the name of the restaurant are put up in such a way that you would surely miss it for the first time.

Service - If you go on weekends or sundays, you might have to wait for long hours for your turn to get a place. So make a tele booking and then go. However in our case, even though we did a booking and arrived well before time, they gave preference to those who arrived early at the restaurant, with or without booking.

So that was a disappointment and point of agitation.

On sundays and weekdays you would feel the rush and it is more likely that you would be under pressure to finish your meal quickly.
