I love Chinese food always, here I’ve tried Noodles with spicy Korean Khamsi. In one word, it was ‘Amazing’. Mostly I’ve loved here the warm and friendly environment.

Let’s try something South Indian or Punjabi food style at the Quest Mall in Park Circus. Yes, here are many restaurants you can go for those. But Chole Bhatore at Masala Kitchen, I’ve liked the most. This food item is something like Luchi/Puri but bigger in size. Meat lovers you can taste many meat items here and the tasty one is Kosha Mangsho. You’ll really love the food court here for the most beautiful decor as well.

If you don’t want to be much expensive, but looking for quality plus tasty food, then this restaurant is a must visit destination for you at Sudder Street. Here you can access free Wi-Fi with food. Many foreigners here around love this place to gossip with friends or simply pass time alone. Yummy Mixed Sizzler with Sweet Lassi is the must try menu here. Come on, just don’t miss it.

And nearby Raj’s Spanish Cafe is also recommended one, if you prefer to try Spanish in Kolkata in a very low cost with free Wi-Fi.
Why don’t try some budget restaurants too? Yes, in Marquis Street there are many like that where you will really love eating at a reasonable price, but the food quality and taste have maintained too. They offer Bengali to Chinese cuisines, but I’ll recommend the Chinese one here specially Chicken Lollypop, Vegetable Curry with Mixed Fried Rice for dinner. It’s a good family restaurant to try nearby.

One more thing, must order yummy 3-in-one Bhorta (Smashed Tomato, Brinjal and Potato) at New Arafat Restaurant here. This mouth watering spicy Bengali menu is the worthy one for all.
Actually, there are many restaurants here in Kolkata depends on your budget, area, and food choice. It’s not just about a popular restaurant with tasty food. But truly speaking, even street foods can be so tasty and hygiene too. The best example can be for Momo from the Sudder Street, one of the tastiest food I did try for the first time in my last visit to Kolkata by sitting under the sky. Will you like to taste that so?
