Haldiram's is a popular Indian brand, known mainly for its sweet and farsan products. This particular endeavor is a full-fledged food extravaganza of 80,000 square feet, keeping in line with the brand's various products. At the ground level, you can find traditional Indian sweets and namkeens (savory snacks) as well as the cake counter which has a variety of egg-less cakes. The first floor has a large food court serving Indian and Continental food. The supermarket on the second floor stores household items and also has free home delivery in areas within 5 km radius. The third and fourth levels each have 6600 square feet of banqueting facilities used for exhibitions as well as private parties. The fifth floor is dedicated to all things vegetarian. Situated close to Birla Temple, Birla Industrial & Technological Museum and Calcutta Skating Rink, this Ballygunge establishment is especially crowded during the Durga Puja season.
The name is inspired from a 1970s Bengali movie about a cook known as 'Bhojohori Manna'. And just like the name, this restaurant is 'Bengali' all the way. The budget prices you see on the menu are an effort to preserve the old 'pice hotel' concept. Of course, the food is always much more than you expect; you can go for the mini or maxi thala, which includes a full traditional Bengali meal. However, if you would rather relish just a few specialties, Macher Chop (Fish Starter), Shorshe Begun (Eggplant in Mustard Gravy), Ilish Barishali, Kankara Jhal (Crab Curry) and Bhekti Paturi are the most tantalizing of the lot. For the perfect end to your meal, try popular Bengali sweets like Mishti Doi or Sandesh. The restaurant has a number of branches across the city; this particular branch at Ballygunge has a humble appearance, but is incredibly popular among those who crave authentic Bengali flavors. The restaurant has free delivery and also has a 'Dekchi' service which works out perfectly for large groups.
