You want the best Northern Indian cuisine, this is the place to go. From ambiance to your palate, it is superb. I've dinner there on my previous visits to Kolkata number of times and this time I stayed at the Taj and had the pleasure of dinning there. Loved every bite of it.

The restaurant is themed around a local India village. Great selection of choices and we enjoyed freshly cooked Indian food and some amazing accompanying breads. Friendly staff and highly recommended.

A 5 on 5. All my pictures are before and after the eating. Just shows how yummy and luring the food was! My entire family was not willing to wait for me to click the picture (not like I was any patient). The food, the flavors, the service - all were exemplary. We had the paneer Sonar Gaon - yum....

We where staying here hence decided to try Sonargaon. It is a upscale village styled restaurant serving mouthwatering north indian dishes, however they do serve bengali cuisine like chingri bati, chocchochori , aloo posto. Vegetarians have good choices too. The north indian dishes are delicious. Coming to the ambience Taj Group is one of the oldest & prestigious group in... More

During my three day stay at the iconic Taj Bengal at Kolkata I visited this restaurant twice - on 10th December I took the pictures (….and the shutter bug in me was so pleased). That amazing is the ambience. The restaurant has a mezzanine floor. The well, near the staircase further enhances the village ambience as an embellishment. This restaurant... More

A visit after many years was a waste of time and money ! The quality and taste was way below our expectations. The leg of lamb was dry and the fish gondhoraj kebab was overcooked killing the Calcutta Beckty completely. The only saving grace was the Dal Sonargaon and the Nans which helped us fill our stomachs. The service was... More

We went to this place for a family occasion. The kebabs were very average. We ordered a Bengali speciality mocha ghanto, but it had onions in it, which offended the purists among us. REst of the food was also nothing great. Although the decor, etc is good, the food itself is disappointing as compared to the expense.
