I am a Bengali and I come from a family where good food is more important than survival – Just addressing my credibility. Now onto the list.

1. Bhojohori Manna

First on the list has to be Bhojohori Manna, beside their most notable old charming décor and service – their food is impeccably true to home. The most simple of things like Cholar Daal, Ilish Mach Bhaja to its Jhinge Aloo Posto has a touch of nostalgia.

I believe that the simple dishes are the most difficult to cook and they get their simple recipes bang on.

To add to their list of achievements, they won the best Bengali restaurant in the 2015 Times Food Awards.

  • Cholar Daal

2. The Calcutta Club

It is considered to be the oldest Bengali restaurant in Mumbai. It’s so old, that it is still called the Calcutta Club and not the Kolkata Club.

Bengalis have been known for believing in quality more than quantity in whatever they do. Living up to the same standards, The Calcutta Club is a small place with an extremely Bengali motif – full with Geeta Dutt, Uttam Kumar and Rabindranath Tagore (of course) posters and the familiar smell of mustard sauce. But the food! Oh my, Oh my! Like Bhojohori Manna it transports you back to Kolkata and reminds you of the time when you sat down with your humongous family and had the lunch of a lifetime.

If you enjoy Bengali cuisine, you cannot miss this place.

Recommended Menu:

  • Luchi and daal
  • Doi Maach
  • Cholar Daal and Rice
  • Gurer Payesh
  • Rosogolla Payesh

3. Hangla’s

Three cheers to Bengali street food! Hangla’s is a testament to that in Mumbai.

As a restaurant, it is much to be desired for but as a culinary experience (strictly the eating part) it’s a whole other story. From your Momos to the effervescent Bengali rolls, Hangla’s will have you licking your fingers until you eliminate the need to wash them.

However the downside is the cost. I think shelling out 180-200 for a roll is a little steep.

Recommended Menu

  • Chicken Momos
  • Mughlai Porotha
  • Caramel Custard
  • Chicken/Mutton Roll
  • Mishti Doi

Where can you find them

  • Galleria Shopping Centre, Powai
  • Linking Road, Bandra West
  • Lokhandwala, Andheri West

4. Oh! Calcutta

A fine dining experience with some incredible Bengali delicacies like the Dab Chingri, Smoked Hilsa etc. With an 11 page menu and 8 pages of drinks – it becomes a difficult choice to lock onto your order.

Incredibly helpful waiters along with a minimalistic décor ensures that your attention is never off your food. Very important I think, when you are designing your restaurant. Looking at the menu, you are bound to get confused what you would want to eat – fret not, just call one of the waiters and address what you are in the mood for and they will do the rest.

If you compare other expensive restaurants in the city, this will feel like a drop of water in the sea. But people used to Kolkata prices will find this place expensive. In that case, welcome to Mumbai!

Recommended Menu:

  • Dab Chingri
  • Fish Fry
  • Steamed Crabmeat
  • Luchi and Aloor Dum
  • Smoked Hilsa
  • Aam Diye Bhindi (Ladyfinger with mango and mustard sauce)

Where can you find them:

  • Lokhandwala, Andheri West
  • SV Road, Khar West
  • Hotel Rosewood, Tardeo

5. Only Rolls

This place is nothing like any of the restaurants mentioned above and they survive in obscurity. But it had to be mentioned because of the yumminess they produce.

As the name suggests, they only serve only rolls and maybe some kebabs– from paneer to mutton, at an incredible price. If you are looking for hygiene – don’t go there, if you are looking to sit and eat – don’t go there and if you are looking to take your first date there – Just don’t.

It’s a simple kiosk style restaurant with no sitting space and an open kitchen. Incredibly helpful stuff, they are always willing to customize the order the way you want it. They were so obscure that until two months ago, not even Swiggy or Zomato would deliver their food.

I am hoping to uproot this guys from obscurity and make them mainstream. With currently only two outlets in the city, you should give these guys a chance.

Recommended Menu:

  • Double Egg Roll
  • The Double Chicken Double Egg Roll
  • Double Egg Double Mutton Roll
  • Egg Cheese Roll

Where can you find them

  • Station Road, Chembur West
  • Sector 2, Vashi
