This is Kolkata's version of the real Moulin Rouge in Paris, complete with the trademark windmill at its entrance. Although it has no cabaret performances today, it was known to be much like the original, albeit less extravagant, in its golden years. Around the 1960s musical soirees were the norm and the entire place would resound with laughter and celebration that would continue till the wee hours of the morning. The sense of nostalgia may not touch upon a first time visitor, but the interiors do hold precious clues to the past. With Indian, Continental, Chinese, French and Italian preparations on offer, Moulin Rouge is a great place for a good evening out with friends even today. The Fish and Chips perfectly compliment drinks and the Chicken Tetrazzini is a highly recommended main course option. The lack of live music is a definite letdown, but the restaurant never lets you down when it comes to good tasting food.
Situated within the Hyatt Regency Kolkata, Guchhi is dedicated to Indian cuisine, specifically North Indian and Bengali. Named after the forest in Kashmir, the restaurant has a decidedly modern ambiance. However, the cuisine is as traditional as it gets; the specials include the Raan-e-Guchhi and Guchhi Pulao. Watching the chefs at work in the open kitchen is a pure pleasure, especially when you know the final result is going to be on your plate. The restaurant also has two private dining rooms.
