    Mocambo: Old Anglo-Indian Calcutta

    by jrober37 Written Dec 21, 2009

    This - not Trinca's - is the home of the Calcutta crooners. For nearly seventy years the place for international cusine in a very sophisticated setting. I've been going to this restaurant since 1967 - I miss the old crowd and the music - but the food is still very good.

    Favorite Dish: Steak Diane - yes steak

    Flame and Grill: The best kebabs this side of Delhi

    by jrober37 Updated Dec 22, 2009

    Went to the South City Mall for some grocery shopping at Spencer and found this marvelous restaurant on the top floor. Endless courses of kebabs that rival the best I've ever had - old Sahib Singh's in Delhi. Individual braziers in the center of each table. Very good selection of beer and wines as well. A very pleasant discovery.

    Favorite Dish: The sausage kebabs.

    Kwality: Deja vu all over again

    by jrober37 Written Dec 21, 2009

    This chain has been around forever and they finally spelled Chicken Maryland correctly. This family restaurant is really a trip down memory lane - be prepared to laugh.

    Favorite Dish: The Chicken Kiev - hilarious. The ice cream is very very good.

    Blue Sky Cafe: Not just a name, but a mighty reputation

    by global-drifter Written Nov 9, 2010

    I've heard great things about this cafe, from the guidebooks that recommend it to the travelers that frequent it, so I thought I'd try it out. I haven't had a bad meal in India yet, and the trend continues within this fabled haunt of backpackers. The clientele is a 50/50 mix between locals and foreigners, which is always a good sign. The prices are very reasonable. I'm able to buy an elaborate feast for myself and three different beggars, all for under 200 rupees - $5! I buy way more than I could possibly eat, which allows me to try a little of everything whilst sharing the food with those less fortunate. This place does decent western food too, for those who grow weary of Indian food.

    Favorite Dish: They do a lot of international snacks really well, like their pizzas and other 'continental fare.'

    The veg momos are a delight. They're also best deep fried.

    India Restaurant & Caterer: Come Hungry Leave Happy

    Delicious Bharta
    4 more images

    India Restaurant is a well known name among the best restaurants in Kolkata. Specialized in various non vegetarian cuisines, it is one of the most famous non vegetarian restaurants in Kolkata. Every dish they serve carries the deep, complex flavors that are the hallmark of Indian cuisine; each curry's spices are so distinct that you can tell them apart by smell alone.
    "Bewitching condiments, careful cooking, succulent spices, a warm atmosphere, and solicitous service make every occasion here a revelation. This is fine dining, Indian style, with each and every plate perfectly presented and each dish, decidedly delicious." We at India's hope you have a pleasant and memorable dining experience!

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Bharta - It is a delicious dish prepared with boneless chicken and is served best with tandoori roti. The cubed chicken bharta has flavors of chicken with semi-cooked onions and aroma of fresh coriander.

    Chicken Cheese Kebab - Recently introduced a succulent chicken kebab with a twist of cheese. Its a must try there.

    Chicken Afghani - An ancient city of art, traditions and being the nation’s multi-cultural capital, Kabul has traditionally offered a wide variety of cooking styles and ingredients. "Chicken Tandoor Afghani" is one such gift of this culture.
