The fabled Chimney soup ...average...the metal pot ...a copy of Thai Tom Yum soup container as you get in Bangkok..is no match.

i went there twice and hope to go there again and again. this restaurant is managed by a chinese family and probably the oldest in kolkata. the food is authentic, service is descent and the bill is pocket friendly. though the location is bit disappointing, the interior is soothing and perfect.

Eau Chew is the oldest continually running Chinese eatery in all of India.. and you would be surprised, the food hasn't been Indianised to a very large extent. The eatery is located up a flight of dilapidated stairs in a rather shabby, old building next to a decrepit and dysfunctional petrol pump. Ambience is not their forte. But what you... More

It's a restaurant run by a Chinese couple..in an extension of their house. We had pre ordered our food which was a very good idea. They prepare everything fresh so it's better to do that. They have a wide variety of veg and non - veg dishes. Their Chinese greens were very good.

Been there a lot many times during my schooling... the biggest attraction is the Chimney Soup... quite a rare one in a Chinese joint. Good Food. Go with a gang 4-6 at least for the Chimney soup.

The place has a very homely feel. The women in the family take the orders and customize the food served. Drinks can also be served if you know the bosses personally

Being influenced by the very good ratings seen over trip advisor went to have a grub at this place, but decided for a takeaway as the place was not yet fully open even at 12.45, i.e. well past mid-day. The place was getting cleaned up, so ordered simple items, such as Chicken fried rice, Chicken Hakka noodles and Chicken Manchurian.... More

Kolkata's one of best chines restaurant is EAU CHEW. The main problem is parking, so its best to have dine on Sunday or other national holidays as this is business area, near to Chandni Metro Station. Try Chimney Soup

This is Kolkata's one of the oldest Chinese restaurant. It runs by a Chinese family. Their signature dish is chimney soup which they serve in a unique style. But somehow their quality of food has been detoriated very much in last few years moreover foods are a bit overpriced.
