Nothing beats the charm of the old, legendary restaurants that Kolkata has to offer. And the best part? You can experience this culinary history of Kolkata even without stepping out!
Here are 8 of Kolkata’s most legendary restaurants that you can order in from right now.
Started off by a Swiss couple in Kolkata 90 years ago, Flury’s serves some of the most delicious pastries and desserts we’ve tried. One bite is all you need to agree with us on this one.
