Love them, hate them, hug them or run away from them, you can’t ignore that there are a lot of Bengali people all around this country, and all over the world. While ’80s Bollywood movies usually used exaggerated stereotypes to show Bengalis, any sense of reality will tell you that there’s more to them than rosogollas, Robindro shongeet and daab chingri. – Sharangee Dutta
But Food was always been a sentimental part of Bengali and it will be. Bengali food tastes best when served authentic.
Aaheli, this is one of the very few places at Esplanade where you can eat what I presume to be authentic Bengali food. And to mark this Poila Baisakh, Aaheli has turned up with mesmerizing aged old Bengali delicacies. In today’s claustrophobic world, we seem to be forget our roots and thriving for modernization. You can’t be modern if you forgot your roots !!
“Poila Baisakh” marks the advent of Bengali New year. It is such an occasion which is filled with fun and frolic. The day begins with Puja, people wear new dresses and visit relative houses with box of sweets.

– Press Release
The choices were quite exceptional. This is authentic Bangladeshi restaurant, the food is so much different than what you get in Indian restaurant .They have great selection of fish dish and it’s packed with beautiful flavours. It’s meant to be an exploration of Bengali Food culture.
Bengali cuisine is a delicate balance of spices, sugar, and salt. It’s never too hot, sometimes a bit sweet, and sometimes a bit salty. It’s also a cuisine with a lot of focus on non-vegeterian food. However, contrary to popular belief, it also has some unique and delicious vegetarian. I’ve dined here at Aaheli an innumerable number of times over the past year, and I am yet to be disappointed with the quality of their food.
It reminded me of home cooked curries and tasted exactly like my mums cooking. there is a huge selection of dishes to choose from.
Me and my friends were very impressed with the food.
I would recommend anyone to give this place a try. you will not be disappointed.
