For authentic Bengali food at a wholesome price visit Calcutta Club
I’d heard about this restaurant from my husband who married to a Bengali knows his Bengali cuisine and from my Bengali friend GC but never had occasion to visit.
Till now if we wanted to eat Bengali food we have trekked to Oh Calcutta which is lovely but not “cheap and cheerful”
Calcutta Club is definitely cheap and cheerful and a great find. Authentic Bengali food, nice Bengali atmosphere (framed photogarphs of the Bengali greats from the film and cultural world including Amartya Sen) on the wall.
There were just 2 of us eating which limited our exploration of the menu but I am sure there will be another visit, soon.
We enjoyed: Bhetki fry with kasundi (mustard paste), bhaja monger dal, chingri (prawn) in a coconut mustard curry, tomato chutney and steamed basmati rice.
Delicious meal and fast service
The bill was under Rs 800/- great value too. A must visit
Its close to Oshiwara Police Station, on the main road itself
Its air conditioned has no bar
