There is a river flowing through the restaurant. It has always fascinated me. Ever since I was a child. The place still feels grand to me, though, people may now find it old. Unfortunately, the food quality has gone done since I last visited. It's still good but it isn't the grand old Zaranj of the olden days.

Very good hotel for north indian dishes. Do not forget to taste their seekh kabab which has both mutton and chicken mince. Their Chicken tikka is also very juicy and fresh. Their freshly prepared bread has one of the unique taste in the whole park street area.

Rested for lunch at Zaranj today , my family and I were completely taken in with the ambience of the place. The little river fountain that flows around the room and the little Japanese style bridges over the rivers really added to the beauty to the place. Service was excellent and we were even warned of the ample amount of... More

It is a clean and attractive restaurant with good food but there were a couple of niggles. I ordered chicken wrapped in pandanus leaves and deep fried but the chicken which was served was cooked in banana leaves. Pandanus leaves have a flavour which banana leaves do not have. I also ordered a classic martini and I told the waiter... More

We had not made arrangements for New Year's Eve but found a recommendation for this restaurant, who were able to fit us in. We had a fabulous meal: fabulous services and a great atmosphere. Can't rate this restaurant highly enough...

I had called and ordered a takeaway for my family. Was attended to by a mr. siddhartha basu. Amazing chap! Very helpful and polite. Food was packed properly, was received on time (absolutely delicious) and mr basu was kind enough to include a lot of accompaniments. Our favorite place in kolkata!
