When it comes to sandesh, this shop is undoubtedly the best in Kolkata. You will only get sandesh and no other variety of sweets. The USP of this place I feel is the creativity and perfectly balanced sweetness of the products.

Establish is 1844 and they have really something to be die for. Tired sandesh samosa with a pinch of clove and pistachio and softly textured structure. Must try.

If you like Sandesh then it's the best choice. Just opposite side road of Hedua swimming pool. Only Sandesh (dry form of milk)

Awesome This shop is part of Calcutta 's History and heritage Bongs are known for their sweet tooth and this shop can be a real corrupting influence on Non Bings alike

The fame is well deserved, no small achievement over decades, nay generations. But the location is a real negative, unless you happen to be in that part of town.

It's a sweet shop, not a restaurant. Best dessert place in this city, traditional style of making with new taste and variation in sweets, using new elements like chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolates and making traditional bengali sweets, chocolate sandesh, chocolate singra, and many...More

This place is must for all sandesh lovers.The best part is they keep on introducing new flavours according to the season like mango, strawberry etc without changing their unique taste.

Visiting Kolkata and not feeding your taste buds with sweets from this shop is a crime.You can try any sweets from this shop and you will not be dis-appointed. The best time to try their specialty is during winters when you get Jaggery filled sandesh.

"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.
