If you’re looking for a good Indian dine-in while traveling to South Kolkata, then RANG DE BASANTI DHABA is a great option. It’s just a slight diversion to get to the business address, from Ballygunge Circular Road and it’s worth all your time stopping over briefly, adding little more fun to your travel space and calming down your hungry belly.
Visited this roadside restaurant, featuring Mango – ficent Menu in the afternoon (around 2 pm) few days ago and if you ask me what I really enjoyed about this place?
– Super-Delicious & homestyle food
– Humble service
– Ethnic setting & perfect ambience to unwind (like Punjabi Dhaba’s in Indian Highways) – Add on Replica of Truck in entrance area
– Pricing, which is surely not a thunderbolt
The RANG DE BASANTI DHABA is a large size restaurant with several rows of dining tables from the front to the back. Few rows are usually used for the large groups. Regarding the interior, I really enjoyed the several different shapes of very uniquely-shaped light bulbs here. These really set the nice mood and ambience to this establishment. The interior design (for the walls) is simple, Desi and low-budgeted here.
People managing the place were prompt in taking orders, intimated us (party of three) well about the overall cooking time that each item takes to be served. Appreciate their efficient service!
“Aam Now Keep Calm” – the month of May was dedicated to the King of Fruits Mango. RDB Management had handpicked the juciest mangoes and curated their Mango – Ficent menu.

Khatta Paneer Keri – This Tawa Paneer dish gets the sourness from Raw Mango paste. With a thin coating over paneer cubes it will definitely give you the x factor to your taste buds. It is a combination of sweet,sour and spicy dry gravy. It can be relished as a starter too though we had it as an accompaniment with Naan.
Andhra Style Mango Chicken Curry – Typically made with Totapari. The curry will spice you up for sure in this heat ! All the fans of mangoes and non-vegetarian dishes, this Mango Chicken Curry is a must try for you all. It gives an aromatic flavor because of all the spicy garam masala that goes into this andhra style chicken curry with punch of raw mango adding freshness.
