If you have money and want to enjoy food in a airconditioned ambience Peerless Inn could be the right place. The food is not so great but ambience is better compared to other places. It has a bar too.
The amount of food you get is not what you expect for the money you spent. So, before ordering, ask if it is enough for the stomachs around.
Service is decent and they accept credit card !

Dhabas in Durgapur - The few I know are near Muchipara where you get booze and the Dhaba food like Chicken / Fish / Daal / Chapati / Rice / Vegetables.
The one I like is very near to the Petrol Pump (towards Burdhamaan) and on the highway. If you go further ahead on the highway, there is a Food / Bar Joint on the right hand side of the road.
