Oudh 1590

Oudh 1590, as the name suggests, is a true period dining experience in the heart of South Kolkata. The restaurant is small and dimly lit, with interiors of carved wood and artwork from the era illuminated by ornate, classic lamp fixtures mounted high along the walls. The menu caters to a broad range of tastes, and while we’d especially recommend the vegetable kathi rolls to start, for the main course you’ll be equally impressed with the tandoori chicken, the mutton galawati kabab, or the awadhi handi biryani.

Bohemian‘s free-spirited menu hops between Continental, Indian, Bengali and fusion dishes with ease. We would encourage guests to do the same and try a little bit of everything; particularly the cheese baked crab cakes with kolmi greens, the vodka-soaked prawns with garlic aoili, and the hilsa baked with bori crust. These tasty plates combine with the restaurant’s charming service, ambience, and decor to provide a delightful dining experience.

The Joint

When you walk into The Joint, you’ll find a long banquet setup that will make college alums nostalgic for their old canteens and dining halls. The canteen vibe extends to the dazzlingly bright walls plastered with funny graffiti, the plastic chairs, and the cutlery, sauces and serviettes waiting for you at the table. Keeping with collegiate tastes, the menu here is focused on pizza, though they offer many tasty sides as well. Try the Hawaiian pizza, chili BBQ sausages, or bacon and chicken carbonara.

Punjabee Rasoi

Punjabee Rasoi is easily one of the best places for Punjabi and North Indian cuisine in Kolkata. Basically a house converted into a restaurant, the atmosphere here is simple and straightforward; all the better to showcase the mouth-watering food. Don’t leave without trying the fish tikka, or the murg lasuni kebab (tender legs of chicken in a secret marinade, grilled on the tandoor).
