Very authentic cuisine. Most probably from the ktichen of Wajid Ali Shah, the Last Nawab of Lucknow. Food is simple, exciting and heart filling. Staff is very warm, made us feel very special. Also the experience was heightened by great company around me.

The earlier charm of the restaurant seems to have lost to certain extent but still the kind of food they serve is a class.I found lot many improvisation and adaptation to a modern-day palate maintaining the old serenity.But at the same time I feel the amount they serve is a little less than the price they do charge.

Tastewise still one of the Favorite place for Biriani Lovers along with other famous Biriani point in Kolkata. Quantity wise they have become the last benchers right now. Firini is World-class and a must Try.

Old time champion of Mughlai food. Now Aminia has spread their branches but this main location in the heart of the city is still favorite destination for Calcutta food lovers. Though Aminia's beriyani is the most popular item but their Tandoori rooti is fabulous, you will not find the softness, taste and texture anywhere. It goes best with their signature... More
