Had dinner with a friend. Great place with simple yet, comprehensive bengali cuisine. Hosts dressed up in traditional attire. Live music is good, however loud at times. In fact i don't understand why there should be a microphone for a live music performance!

They aim for serving fresh and good food,which has a homemade feeling, people those who are missing their... More

A great place if you want to savour authentic Bengali food - amazing thali and prices are reasonable. You can get long forgotten delicacies there and the kind not cooked in Bengali kitchens any more. This option is best for non vegetarians and fish lovers. You can try out ala carte too - but thali would give you the complete... More

The only place for delicious and authentic Bengali cuisine. The boneless steamed mustard Hilsa in banana leaf (Ilish paturi) is simply to die for. The payesh (kheer) is exactly the dessert to end the gastronomical overindulgence!!
