Kolkata (Calcutta) Restaurants


Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

The name means "golden village," and this North Indian restaurant is a tasteful replica of a rural home, complete with a courtyard, a well, dark wood on taupe stone, copper curios, and metal light fixtures. Popular dishes include kakori (minced lamb) kebab, patthar ka ghosht (mutton marinated with red chillies and masala and cooked on a marble stove), and chingri malai.

Very Cute Decor And Good Mughlai Food

A friend of mine took me here last trip to Cal. Sonargaon is definitly a very good place if you want great northern Indian dishes. The decor is very being in a village house. Food is excellent, both veg and non-veg. The tikka masala, paneer and culcha are a must. Service is great-- typical for the all Taj restaurants. Plus a wine list and cocktails straight from the Taj's bar (one of the few decent bars in Cal). Sonargaon has Bengali dishes

on the menu, but don't bother with them. There are much better (and cheaper) restaurants out there for a Bengali meals. Stick with the Mughlai dishes and you won't go wrong. Reservations are a must on weekends. Since it's in the Taj, it's not a good price value for Cal standards.
