Just try out this place for the sake of experiencing awesome food. Dishes never heard of with delicious taste. As the name suggests – something unconventional, and rightly so.
The Calcutta Food Voyage – A MODERN TAKE ON BENGALI CUISINE. The Calcutta Food Voyage, the new casual dine restaurants on Kalikapur, Prince Anwar Shah Road Connector is an awesome experience.
A family restaurant with beautiful, classic ambiance, nice and welcoming staff and most importantly innovative mouth-watering food. If you want to taste Bengals ingredients and flavours with a twist, this is the place to visit.
It is a good place for those who are already familiar with Bengali cuisine and want to try a different take on it. Similarly, for Europeans who are skeptical of trying traditional Indian food, it is a good introduction to Bengali food flavours. You see the food looks continental but the ingredients and flavours are all Bengali.
