Although this place brings back many an interesting memory of family and friends enjoying a special timeout, yet currently, one must acknowledge, it is not a place where I'd go to enjoy the same kind of treats.

It's become too crowded with tables placed so near to each other as to leave almost no elbow room and nothing left to imagination of the conversations in the next table.

Although food is still reasonably good yet the soups are no longer of the delectable taste of yore. Price point of drinks is also an issue.

Please bring back the filling, smoking, rich soups and bring down the price points of the drinks a notch and we will throng it again despite the parking problem and endless waiting time especially on weekend nights.

The first things that strikes you about this place is the huge amount of space that it occupies right in the center of town - Park Street!!! This is an iconic restaurant which has managed to maintain its quality over the years.

Good things first ...

Excellent Indian and Chinese food. They have a detailed menu with very good offerings to suit the palate. The quality is quite good, though I did have a bad experience when I last visited sometime last month. The service is laidback and tends to be pretty slow when the place is full. Preferably choose a seat in the main dining area since the other seating areas tend to be serviced less promptly.

Coming to the food - there are no two ways about this - the food is just yum! Be it the variety of Indian fare or the Chinese, it is a five star menu all the way. Try out the Chinese starters like the crispy vegetables or corn. My all time favourite. The portions are quite decent though you would need to order carefully in case you are a large group. Ensure that you order on time, since you will end of waiting for the food to arrive, esp. if the place is crowded.

For the deserts, the Tutti Frutti icecream is an all time favorite here. Go for it. For chocolate lovers, there's the chocolate brownie with ice cream. For the Chinese lovers, there's Dar Saan - which are fried noodles dipped with honey and served with Vanilla ice cream. This restaurant is a must visit if you are in Kolkata - you can never go wrong!

Located in the central most part of park street, it is a casual eat out with bar, and offer sumptuous indian and chinese spread which is not at all heavy on your wallet. A must visit place for travellers.

I have been going to Bar B Q on Park Street ever since my father introduced us to its mouth watering array of good food. A shade down market since the seventies of the last century, it still retains its character and ambience. The menu retains its past with some additions down the line and the tariff attractively low for a restaurant in downtown Kolkata. Its always good value for money and my personal favourite remains the pork fried rice. As with all Park Street joints the wait at the door step can be disconcerting as too many people line up on holidays. But then that is a sure sign of its success.
