  • The 'Kosha Mangsho' is perhaps one of the best that you get in the city; a balanced dish slow-cooked to perfection is a must-try
  • For something new and unique, the 'Rui Macher Savoury Patishapta' is a fantastic choice
  • The menu is very extensive and an easier way to go for it would be to order a 'Thali' which is available in 4 varieties in non-vegetarian and one variety in vegetarian. There is 'Ilish' available in one of the thalis round the year

The first fine dining Bengali restaurant in the country, it was a bold move by Peerless Inn to open this in 1993, when eating Bengali food out of home was not in practice. They surpassed people’s expectation, and till date they have managed to live up to their reputation for providing quality traditional Bengali food, both from the kitchens of East and West Bengal under one roof. The restaurant has had a revamp, however, they have stuck to the royal brass crockery, some terracotta pots, paintings on the wall depicting life in Bengal and many more small things which remind you of the culture of Bengal. The food is simply outstanding, right from 'Bheckti Paturi' to 'Chingri Bati Chorchori' to 'Postor Bora' or 'Shukto', anything that you try out there is par excellence. What stands out here is that they do not use tomatoes in any of the traditional cooking, which is how Bengali food is meant to be. Be prepared to burn a hole through your pocket since the food is extremely expensive. However, the quality and the quantity of the food surpass your expectation.

About Aaheli, The Peerless Inn, Kolkata

As you wake up to the glorious Kolkata morning, the sight of quintessential Bengal welcomes you. The honks of yellow ambassador taxis visible in the distance and the gentle negotiation going on below with the seafood vendor are some of the colors of Bengal glimpsed through your window. However, it's the mouth-watering aroma of fish cooking somewhere that pulls you out of your delicious haze and sets you off to sample the amazing flavours of Bengali gastronomy. Quench your craving for kosha mangsho by reserving a table at Kolkata's favorite Bengali restaurant ‘Aaheli'.
