Staff behaviour is too bad. Rooms are damped. Zero professionalism. They won't clean your rooms until you go and tell them atleast 5 times. Being in the prime place they don't care about your comfort.

This restaurant serves typical Bengali food in a rustic setting. They serve food in brass plates and water in brass glasses. On table the water jug is made up of copper. You can however ask for mineral water bottle. Vegetarian Thali costs Rs 120. You...can add non vegetarian dishes to your order. The vegetarian fare included mixed vegetable, aloo poshto, begun bhaja (fried egg plants) daal, Rice, Papad etc. We added betki fish and prawns (jhinga machh) to our list. The curries are typical Bengali preparations. The restaurant is located in a village type setting. The Rice vegetables and daal are served from earthenware pots.More

We heard a lot about this restaurant. But, we were deeply disappointed with the food and service provided to us. The way the meal was served was awful. Rice was just being thrown on my dish (lotus leaf). We ordered vegetable thali, mutton and chicken...curry. The quality of food was so poor. We were also disheartened by the disgusting ambience -- clamorous crowd and so noisy.We'd never go there in future.More

Excellent food quality with in budget and ambiance is very unique. Must eat here. Service is good but little space is the only negative.

Quality of food is good. Perfect Bengali food. Ambiance was nice. But sometimes they SERVED OLD FISH/CHICKEN what I have experienced. In that case I would say bit overpriced. If you are pricing such then you should not serve OLD CHICKEN.

The greatest advantage of staying here is that Famous Saturday Khoyai Hat is just in front of it. Don't forget to order lunch early to avoid the rush. Room's are not spacious but staffs are very helpful.

The location has captured the Haat buyers, both as a coffee-shop and restaurant. With a modest beginning some years ago when the Haat itself was just No.1, the sheer growth in numbers poses a challenge for standards of cooking, service and hygiene. The noisy atmosphere...appeals to the young family crowds, in contrast to the peaceful view of green fields and palm trees behind. Closer supervision required in order to raise standards.More

Really really good bengali cuisine specially kochi pathar jhol, postor bora and ilish jhal. The ambience amidst sonajhuri forest is just awesome.Will definitely visit again.

Yes, outsiders can eat only lunch here. During Poush mela it is so crowded that outsiders may not get chance to eat here.

It is about 30 mins from the station. You need to book an auto to the place because it is in the interior of the place close to the forest and you might not get a transport back. I would suggest to go for lunch and not... More
