Hotel Bangla Reviews and Ratings - Park Town, Chennai
by Dr. Paromita Adhikary
Bengali food in Chennai itself is a gift for me & my "bheto bangalee'" family. We discovered this gem of a place on our evening stroll in the city. The very next day we appeared for lunch. We ordered the bengali niramish Thali. It consisted of bhat, masoor dal, aloo vaja, salad, noon-lebu, tomato chatni, papad, 2 types of mixed veggies. We also ordered chingri, pabda fish, katla fish & mourola fish also. I was on cloud nine seeing the food & was salivating profusely. The food was delicious, heavenly to me. Extra rice, dal, torkari was given as a second helping FREE OF COST. I would definitely recommend this gem of a place to any bengali travelling to Chennai.

I went there directly from Central Station around 3 in the afternoon. I had called around noon to confirm the availability of food around this time and they are open till 3:30 pm for the lunch session. Reaching there was not difficult at all! New Central Hotel is a landmark and one needs to take the second right from Wall Tax Road facing north. Then on the right hand side will be Ambika Lodge and opposite to that a small cigarette shop. You need to take the narrow lane right next to this cigarette shop (Jesson Street). Beyond the billboards of Sri Abirami Guest House you'll find the Hotel Bangla board in red and white... Bonus points if you can read Bangla! ;-) One veg thali has rice, dal, two veggies, papad, a dice of onion and lemon alongwith water of course! Extra rice is free. This thing costs 50/-. The quality is perfect. The two sabjis I got were potato curry and mixed veg. The quality onif the rice was perfect. Apart from this, I got egg curry with two eggs which came for 25/-. A full meal for 75 rupees in clean stainless steel plate is a sheer bliss! This is surely the best ever Bengali food I've ever had outside in Chennai (apart from my and my mom's cooking, of course!!) Let's not get into the ambience here because this is more of a lodging and fooding option but the place is clean, food is spot on and service perfect. However, the seating is much better compared to other okayish Bengali joints in the city. Though I didn't get chicken curry, considering the time and all the factors, it's not a big deal. Regarding the payment, I paid 75 rupees in cash and didn't check whether they accept card.
Rating1points it is more than enough for this worst food i have ever had worst service nothing good to say about this third class restaurant and i think#zomato should not show this restaurant aur what it is in his website it was an insulting of zomato website too....please frnds don't ever try to go to this restro.......

This restaurant actually a dhaba is an heaven for all the bong people living in Park Town. When you are craving for bengali food a visit to this eatery is must. They serve plain home cooked bengali thalis at very cheap price. The food is mouth watering including the fish & chicken. It is a heaven for the maach bhath priyo bangalis. Do not expect any sort of ambience or class. Just visit the place for cheap bengali food in Chennai.
