Baccara Club Lounge is all about cabanas, lounges, artsy nooks and exotic hukkas!

I am sure you had been to Hukka parlours in the city. Kolkata boasts of some amazing hukka parlours for sure and this trend has seen the sunlight since last few years. Personally, I am not a big fan of Hukka but that doesn’t stop me from reviewing a Hukka parlour or taking a puff…

‘Special Menu’ launched at Santa’s Fantasea (Saltlake Sec-V)

I have been an ardent meat lover since I was a teenager. I love exploring the flavors, aroma and spices trapped in the folds of a well-marinated juicy piece of protein. I had been hospitalized as well in the quest of trying out various varieties of meat, there was a severe allergy attack and I…

The newest pub with a grandiose ambiance – Rikki’s Bar & Kitchen!

City nightlife scenes are ever changing and evolving in Kolkata and truly speaking, the city embraces almost all the options that come up unless they pose any security issue or something extremely unacceptable or bothering. Still, it is said, Kolkata nightlife is not that great when compared to few other cities in the country. But…

Serafina – The best fine-dine Italian restaurant is back in the city of joy!

Though I review hundreds of restaurants, but the fact is, there are only a few places I myself love to go back and eat again, maybe with my family or friends. That's the neat piece of truth, served cold! Serafina is surely one of my favorite fine-dine restaurants in the city. It is that 'one place' I…

Ever imagined that you are sitting in a movie theatre in Kolkata and munching on Spanish snacks while Shah Rukh Khan has gone for a short chai break in between his promotion of Switzerland tourism? 🙂 Well, today we have learnt to imagine many a thing which seemed farfetched even a decade or two ago.…

The Bhoj Company – Mecca of Dhakai food lovers in Kolkata!

I have a certain soft corner for Dhakai cuisine; don’t know why, maybe because my roots belong to that place. My grandfather migrated from Bangladesh during the partition, leaving everything behind and came to settle in Calcutta amidst all the cacophony and turmoil of that period. A lot has changed since then. But for me,…

‘Sanjha Chulha’ – celebrating 15 glorious years with a ‘Special 15’ menu!

Dining at Sanjha Chulha has always been a gleeful experience for me. Recently this Kolkata’s very own North Indian restaurant completed 15 glorious years of its operation. Business partners Asif Ahmed and Anup Mehrotra started off Sanjha Chulha as a small outlet on EM Buypass fifteen years back on October 10, 2002. The place is…

‘Byomkesh’ – the sleuth comes back in the web-series on ‘HoiChoi’ App!

I had always been a big fan of Byomkesh Bakshi and in fact I used to love Byomkesh over Feluda since the creator of Byomkesh, Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay had given so many layers to the character of the sleuth which is hard to get enough of. Also Byomkesh is targeted for the adults while Satyajit had…
