Masala Kitchen

Let’s try something South Indian or Punjabi food style at the Quest Mall in Park Circus. Yes, there are many restaurants with buffets here, 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 jumbo size. Meat lovers you can taste many meat items here, and the tasty one is Kosha Mangsho. You’ll love the food court here for the most beautiful decor as well.

And nearby Raj’s Spanish Cafe is also recommended if you prefer to try Spanish in Kolkata at a little cost with free Wi-Fi.


Dawat Restaurant

Why don’t try some budget or cheap 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 especially Chicken Lollypop, Vegetable Curry with Mixed Fried Rice for dinner. It’s a good family restaurant to try nearby.
