This is a place I visited endless number of times during my early years when I used to live in India. I loved the chicken rolls, parathas, kebabs and beer. During my last visit to India, I invited some of my ex-colleagues at this place to spend a couple of hours reminiscing about the old days. We ordered several dishes... More

Mom's favourite kebab roll place- the chicken egg roll is very good. The vhicken pakoras were super succulent. My murgh biryani/chicken biryani was ok - too strong a zaffron aroma not appealing to my palate. Customer service ok. Place is extremely worn down and dirty. No toilets and just a urinal beside the kitchen which was just awful. Hygiene issues... More

Excellent Kathi Rolls in Calcutta. Both, the paratha and the chicken, in the Kathi rolls was delicious. I could go there every day if I lived in Calcutta!

This is an old establishment and a popular destination for evening snacks while marketing at Lindsay street. The chicken roll and fish fry is very tasty.

After shopping in the sreeleathers showroom for about 4 hours, we were insanely hungry and out of nowhere, our eyes saw the restaurant's board and decided to have our lunch there. After getting into the hotel, which was a bit clumsy, we sat at the last table and then ordered food. Biriyanis were okay but Chinese cuisine was bang on!!!!!!... More

Situated on the Ground Floor of 5 Lindsay Street, in Esplanade, Near Globe Cinema this quaint restaurant can be undoubtedly called the Kings of Rolls in Calcutta. Located in the crowded footpath of New Market Area you are bound to give it a miss if you are not a true fan of Badshah. As for me they would always remain... More

Famous for it's rolls. But I have had problems with their servings. Maybe my luck was bad. I would not really like to repeat there.

I mainly go for a quick bite of their Chicken/mutton/egg rolls though they have a few other kinds. Their Roll is not at all oily and never gives you a queasy feeling. In fact, in Kolkata for me It is the Best for Rolls! Please try it when visiting Calcutta once at least. Priced reasonably.

This one is a pretty old joints in New Market area in Kolkata, famous for its kathi-rolls. I visited this place many a times and enjoyed the food especially with beers. The chicken-egg rolls and the fish cutlet and fish fingers were really are really tasty. I preferred the upstairs even though it is quite dark and congested but the... More
