Kolkata (Calcutta) Restaurants

Eating out (and indeed eating in) is a favorite pastime in Kolkata. The city was the hub of happening restaurants and clubs in the 1960s—a culture that dwindled with the passing of years. However, after the liberalization of the economy and with the blessings of the open market (open to foreign goods and influences) Kolkata has experienced a vibrant restaurant culture since the mid-1990s. Restaurants

here cater to a varied sensibility: Asian, Mexican, Italian, and, of course, Indian. The service is largely friendly, and many places are crowded enough, especially on weekends, to warrant reservations. Best of all, eating out in Kolkata is cheaper compared to cities like Delhi and Mumbai—and every bit as good in terms of quality. Restaurants are generally open daily 12:30 to 3 for lunch and 7:30 to 11 for dinner.
