“What can I do right now to bring a smile to your face?”
Yes, you heard it right ! Melting point can easily bring smile to your hard heating hunger in very pocket friendly prices. Finding this place is easy, as it is located bang on Greek Church Row, Kalighat, a few metres from Greek Orthdox Church. Fastfood joints can flatter to deceive, as some of the fabled places have turned out to be utterly disappointing ! But this was not the case here ! A very recently opened venture from Mr. Aveek Chatterjee. A small joint mainly looking forward to provide take away service though few chairs are available to have your food here only ! So we went in here not knowing what to expect. Service is quick. Food is readied within minutes.

My love for authentic and good food along with a long cherished dream of opening up a restaurant finally got materialized in the form of “Melting Point”. From Tongue to stomach, to heart that’s what our slogan is. As the name says, Melting point will melt your heart with its quality food and taste.

The Dishes We Had :
Chicken Pakora – The name itself is enough to make us salivate. It is a very popular and common Indian snack. A Spicy crispy snacks are part and parcel of Indian cuisine. Spicy pakora with chicken flavor in each bites is a must try recipe for a lovely evening here. These ingredients are perfectly collaborated to give this chicken chunks a perfect crispy delicious taste.
Chicken Steamed Momo – Delicious things come in small packages. It is a non-vegetarian Tibetan dish famous as a street food snack which has become hugely famous in Kolkata in last decade. Dumplings filled with a spiced minced chicken and then steamed – a delicious healthy snack.
Chicken Pan fried Momo – The fried version of Chicken Momo. The tasty spicy sauce provided additional flavor to the delicious Momos. These deep fried, crispy hot momos promise a perfect crunch as soon as you take a bite.
