UTC Cafe - Hotel Aura, S.N Banerjee road, Kolkata Food and Flavour: 3.5/5 Ambience: 1/5 Service: 1/5 Seating: 1.5/5 Value for Money: 2.5/5 * Rooftop setup * Smoking zone * Hookah available Having to meet a client staying at the hotel housing UTC cafe, I got to try their breakfast and dinner on two separate days/occasion. Looked swanky with the wall art and paintings, letdown by the management/staff. Serves hookah in the evenings. Order:- Chilli Fish (₹320) - Fresh chunks of soy and sugar glazed fish in a spicy sauté. Medium-large portion size. Must try. Tomato aur Dhaniya ka Shorba (₹80) - Beautiful flavours of coriander and tomato, mildly sweet. Lovely. Goan Fish Curry & Rice (₹350) - A sweet n spicy coconut based gravy with two sizeable pieces of boneless bass fish. Medium-large portion size. Served with a large portion of long grained steamed rice, sliced onions and green chillies. Must try. Amazed at the quality of food and taste. Order completion time was about 20 minutes per dish. **** Breakfast:- Toast (₹50) - 4 slices per order. Decent. Accompanied with two small butter and jam packets. Idli with Sambar & Chutney (₹80) - Idli was okay but wasn't even warm! Sambar was tasty. Chutney wasn't fresh. The waiter didn't understand 'scrambled egg' and got masala omelette (₹60) instead. Okay-ish. The only thing I asked for was the scrambled egg and was given something else. My associate on the other hand wasn't very lucky with his order. Thankfully I only got to taste some of the food. Worst option for breakfast which is very surprising because I had no complaints with the dinner. Service is lousy and waiters have to learn to communicate. Total Bill:- ₹800/- approximately for dinner.

Worst cafe ever visited. I've visited a lot of cafe and I am not the kind of person who gives review, but I am compelled to give for this one. They haven't given their menu on zomato, the menu card is very much different from the one given and only 10% of the item given in the menu are actually available for you to order. We ordered pasta, nachos, mojito, brownie shake, none of which were available. Finally we just ordered 2 cold coffee (thankfully which was available), overpriced, 160 plus tax for a cold Coffee which wasn't worth 60 bucks plus you have to wait for 45 mins just to get this amazing coffee. The staffs are equally amazing.

Had been in this place 2-3 months ago and had Chinese but the foods were disgusting in taste and less in quantities , staffs were OK not very good at their service, the rooftop of hotel aura was the location of the cafe so it was good place for dinner not lunch at all. THE plates and spoons were very dirty too so not recommended anyone
