Kewpie's Reviews and Ratings - Rowland Row, Kolkata

Avoid!

Rated 1.0 by Shruthi

We had bookmarked this restaurant on our first trip to Calcutta. The place was sorely disappointing. There was a gigantic cockroach that came running out from under the table. There were 2 waiters, neither did anything to even remove it. The washroom was disgusting, dirty and had more tiny roaches. The last straw was when the food arrived and there was a mini cockroach on the plate. We complained to the waiter who didn't even seem apologetic about it. Terrible experience. I highly doubt they deserve the awards they ahve hanging on their walls. Oh and to add, outside the restaurant, I found another dead cockroach. That makes it 4 in all, in one experience. Never going back there again and best of luck to whoever does.


Loved it!

Not only size but taste does matter! As far as food is concerned, so they say!! An unbelievably big bhetki fry that not only does justice to its size but taste as well, clearly defining the difference between good & great, is definitely the item one should order on all visits. A basic veg thala is what we ordered that matches taste with tradition unlike most of the Bengali joints in the city "customizing" the cooking style & the taste not to mention of the compromise in quality. An excellent chitol macher muitha (is khanti damodar seth listening?!), perhaps the most authentic paturi avaialble in the city, and an outstanding goalondo chicken curry are the three non veg items we ordered. Even the luchis served on the platter reminds one of the home-cooked variety. A good tomato chutney, followed by sweet curd, sandesh and paan proved to be worthy tailenders to this meal. This joint continues to be the best place n Kolkata for someone who wants to enjoy a Bengali meal cooked in the traditional way offering the flavors of home-cooked food.

We went for a bengali meal on 27th sep to this place. Place was deserted- hardly 3 tables were on including ours. The earthen ware gave us a bright hope of good food. Ordered a la carte. We ordered Channa dal, a loo dum, kosha Mansho, fried fish , aam panna, and prawn malai curry with luchis and steamed rice. Quite disappointed. Helpings were like 4 tablespoons of dal for Rd.100, 2 small potatoes for Rs.100!! The fried fish costing 320/ was one thin piece of bhetki with mounds of crumbs!! Amazing! Similar with the prawn! 4 tablespoons of curry and 1 prawn, 4 tablespoons of curry and 3 pieces of mutton- hardly any taste! Quantity of rice was as dieticians want us to eat- 1 muthi! Very disappointing dinner ! Still remember the tasty fare of long time to. Seems owner's want to sell on basis of past fame!


Loved it!

I love this place!!! It's an old house nicely setup as a restaurant... Surprisingly when we stepped in, there were no other guests that too on a Sunday dinner time. The ambience is just a total different experience all together!! Decor is truly amazing!! Food is so freaking tasty. Okay people it's true when they serve you, it's like such a tiny bowl and am I supposed to fill my stomach with that little food. But Stop and just start eating. They are so delicious that it fills your stomach even half the way!! Believe it, quality is much more important than quantity!! The food is just too good.. My dear Bengalis don't waste your time and just rush there!!! You will love the food!!

We went looking for some good bengali cuisine.not checking out the zomato reviews before selecting the place was one of the worst experiences of my life.we had chosen to go a la carte and had ordered kosha mangsho , chicken kosha , elish bhapa, dhoka r dalna, chicken goalanda or some crap like that.the rice per plate ws 75 rs and the quantity was so less it wouldnt even be sufficient for a kid.Everything was cold bar the luchi, and the quality of rice was so bad i dont know what to say.The elish bhapa smelled of mustard and lacked any flavour whatsoever except being bitter.The staff is not friendly enough.the restroom smells bad.Moral of the story is quantity minimal, quality abysmal.if u value ur money and dont want to sleep hungry DON'T GO.
