I and my wife had Lunch on 15 August at this restaurant which is centrally located at Kolkata.The restaurant specialises in North Indian food. We had excellent mutton kabab and Amritsari Fish kabab , which was followed by Methi Malai chicken with Lachha Paratha and...Nan. The food preparation was good. The ambience was excellent.More

I was totally disappointed with the dining. The food quality was not at all good. 5 of us were there for lunch but we were totally dissatisfied. The signature dish Sikandari Raan was not there to order. No lamb items. We were restricted to order...from chicken and veg items only. The makhani chicken we ordered was stale. The experience was totally bad. Didn't expect this kind of service.More

Zaranj is a very nice place, situated at the heart of Kolkata (near Indian Museum) but without the crowd which one would often associate with restaurants in similar locations. The ambience is perfect for a family dinner or lunch. Though Zaranj doesn't have its own...parking but it shouldn't be a problem as parking places are available adjacent to the restaurant. It has got a Bar, a Chinese eatery and a multi cuisine one. One can order food from any of these 3 places within the same building. The taste of food is very good. The prices are a little on the higher side but the quantity that they will provide is also reasonable. Rajesh Pal- one of the stewards took special care of us when we had visited in Oct 2019. We were 6 in all and paid around INR 6.6k which included drinks and starters. So the average price per person that you've to pay is around INR 1.1 to 1.5k. Overall a lovely place with good food. At the entry one can see the list of dignitaries/VIPs who had been there which includes people like Amartya Sen, Saurav Ganguly, Shane Warne, Ravi Shastri and many others. This might give you the confidence if my post doesn't.More

It’s a very good restaurant that serves North Indian food with great ambience, nice interior and great service by the staff. I loved the Murgh Makhani & Lamb Rogan Josh of this place and also not to miss Murgh Tandoori which is very good. The...price of this restaurant is on the bit higher side but it’s worthy... Bar is also there with this restaurant and valet parking is provided by the restaurant.More

Interesting restaurant with fountains in the middle. Food was good. We did order two similar dishes (having been warned that they were) and they were very similar. Overall a decent place to eat.

We really enjoyed the Indian food here. The ambience is a little over the top with bridges and water features and elaborate furniture but the staff are super friendly and the food is delicious. We look forward to returning here next time we are in...Kolkata.More

Best food in India I’ve had so far. And our waiter Zaffar was lovely! Try the mixed tandor platter. The almond drink was also to die for.
