Very poor and unprofessional people. We had booked one day before and the people even took food order in advance. When we ( twelve of us) reached, we were shocked to find that our name was not in the booking list. Then when we called...the person he said he could not help. This man is fraud . His number is 9434446150, which is displayed in the bonolaxmi website. Please don't call this number as you will be utterly disappointed like us.More

I think my first visit on 27th December 2020 will be my last visit due to the long wait state before you actually get the food, if you are a small in-group then you are ignored. Food is okay but they miss the wow factor....a personal touch is missing, more like a factory setting. Feed them and get the next batch. unless they expand it will remain difficult to get quality customers.More

If you ever go to Shantiniketan, make the effort to drive down to BonoLakshmi for a meal and some shopping - you want the pickles, Chutneys and yes, even the plants. It’s shut on Mondays

The people who work here are very courteous and good mannered. They serve excellent quality authentic bengali cuisine with no limit.You can ask for as many helpings.I had not ordered a thali for my kid.I thought of feeding me from my thali.But for sake of...humanity they offered him one plate of rice ghee and dal with aloo bhaji for free.The honey,bori are excellent to buy here.You can even buy plant saplings here offered for sale.More

During our visit to Shantiniketan we decided to have some authentic Bengali food which we miss as Probashi Bangalee. To our surprise the lunch had to be booked the day before and paid for at the counter before being allowed to sit at the dining...table. The room was ill lit, shabby with cushionless wooden chairs. The food was cold. No spoons, no tissues were available. We had to wash our hands on a small basin outside. On top of it the sweets, Gokul Peethe, bought at a second room was worthless. Had to be thrown into a dustbin. This was the worst experience that we had at any restaurant worldwide. I would never recommend this place to anyone.More

Been there to have traditional bengali thali. We are awestruck to have their fish thali and wonder how can one consume such a variety. More was on wait when I purchased ghee from their outlet attached. Its really really worthbuying. 700 buck a kilo is...nothing if you have in your menu. Great experience just 9 km from bolpur.More

Basic thali included unlimited rice, ghee, shukto, sona moog daal, jhuri aloo bhaja, dhonkar dalna, chatni We added non-veg options of shrimp and chicken on top of it. Food tasted good and servers were friendly.

We ignored the muliple suggestions of confirming a reservation before going. And paid for it. For one its a 30min drive to Bolpur and next it was unbelievably crowded. I hope we enjoy the reportedly wonderful food next time around. They have a small adjoining...shops that sells some crafts incl textile and home-made ghee that is quite popular.More

Well if your visit to Shantiniketan/ Bolpur is for a serene experience or an excursion with friends, Bonolakshmi can always be on the top of your lunch eat out list. From Shantiniketan you have to drive some time to reach the place, however the beauty...of the road is worth the drive. You can choose from the delicious thalis available. I personally liked the Mutton curry a lot. Also do remember to make a reservation well in advance by calling them up.More

You can contact them directly and ask if they will serve breakfast and dinner to non residents. This is a resort so at least for residents all meals are available. Daytrippers come usually for lunch and that is what they... More
