Everything we ordered was great, I could not find any fault with any of the dishes! Special mention to the Egyptian pizza and the faul medimas (not sure if I got the name right, but basically the fava beans!) Service is also impeccable

A Mediterannean fusion restaurant, Souk serves middle eastern and Greek inspired meals that are full of flavour. Highly recommended.

A good change of palate after an overload of Bangla cuisine. As you can't get rid of sea food, it was a nice break to have changed the palate to simple mediterranean flavours. The display kitchen with full open view appealed to our eyes, palate and dining experience. Also the sizzle and aroma of food item added to the pleasure... More

It was really my good fortune, that yesterday (09 December 2016) I had my dinner in the best Mediterranean eatery of Kolkata - Souk. It boasts of the best dining, authenticity and variety. I really liked the instantly made food. My first trip advisor review on a Mediterranean eatery has been a chance to learn so many things - 80... More

Went for dinner at Souk on Saturday evening – urbane décor, cordial staff, comfy sitting arrangements …all good and expected, now let us talk about the food… Appetizer Hummus Bil Lahm - Hummus, Crispy Lamb, Pine Nuts, Lemon, Parsley Hummus was very fresh, that was the only plus point. They were not generous enough with the lamb and pine nuts,... More

From all three restaurants at Taj Bengal, this is my less favorite. The beauty and decoration of the place doen not fit the food quality. It's maybe my taste, can be, but not worth the high end prices and average Moccoco, Egyption food.

Went to Souk as part of Restaurant Week India where top restaurants across some major cities in India allow diners to sample some of their signature dishes from a set menu at significantly reduced prices (INR 900++ per head in Kolkata). We were seated in a private room adjacent to the kitchen. I believe this room is generally offered to... More

One of those places (fortunately quite rare now) where no effort is put into the food whatsoever. The belief from the owners here is that if they make the food expensive, people will be fooled into thinking it is fine dining. Whilst the food is very cheap by UK standards, it is certainly expensive for Kolkata. One example is an... More
