Mocambo

Multicuisine in Kolkata (Calcutta)

Mocambo dates back to 1956, but with old-fashioned seats in scalloped red leather, it feels more like a mood-lit 1970s steakhouse. A very loyal following comes regularly for its mixed grills, devilled crabs, fish Wellington, chicken Kiev and bhetki meunière (barramundi fillets in lemon-butter sauce). An unwritten sartorial admission code applies (no shorts or flip-flops).
