1. Place: Sholoana Bangali (<— click for directions) Dish: Bangali Thali
Bengal is a dreamy place. Bengali’s are food lovers. In such dreamy place cuisine is of the utmost importance. On the surface, Bengali food is very stereotypically bhaat-dal-maach (rice, lentils and fish curry). However, don’t be fooled by this seeming brevity. The concept of this cuisine is bigger on the inside.To start the journey along a Bong thala, one must begin at the beginning. Melted brown ghee (preferably Jhorna Ghee) with basmati rice is often considered to be the best way to begin a Bengali meal. This is often followed by a bitter-sweet curry made with mustard and ground poppy seeds, known as “shukto”. This can then be followed by several different kinds of dishes, both vegetarian as well as non vegetarian, depending upon what one would like to eat. A combination that is often favoured amongst many Bongs is that of aloo bhaja (fried potato) and dal. This delectable dish soothes the palate and paves the way for heavier, meaty dishes.

3. Place: Tandoor House (<— click for directions) Dish: Sizzlers/ Chicken Tandoor/ Handi Biryani,
Chicken Reshmi Butter Masala and Thumbs Up
It is a small restaurant which serves awesome delicious finger-licking foods. It is indeed ideal for students with small budgets. Even at low cost there is no compromise with the quality,quantity and service in this restaurant…Their sizzlers is just amazing!!!..The chicken tandoori was marinated in the right amount of spices before they are cooked; it’s just awesome for starters. Handi Biryani and Chicken Reshmi Butter Masala are cooked very well and mouth watery. So to sum up would like to say it’s a place where we can visit more than once and the best part is the pocket pinch is almost nothing compared to the quality & quantity of the food.
4. Place: Mocambo Restaurants (<— click for directions) Dish: Chicken Pavlograd
It has good ambiance, non-vegetarians delicacies are served the best here. The veggie dishes in the menu are very few . Chicken Pavlograd is a piece of culinary art, the way they put butter inside makes it a must ordered dish here. Devilled Crab, Chicken Chate Bleu and Irish Chateaubri and Beef steak are also a must try. Although, you have to wait a bit to get inside, but the food is absolutely worth the wait.
