New Aliah Hotel

Mughlai in Kolkata

This central business district eatery has long been a favourite with journalists and bureaucrats, who congregate here at mealtimes to tuck away hearty portions of biryani, rezala (mutton stew in a light yoghurt gravy), tandoori chicken and an assortment of kebabs, accompanied by flavourful roti and aromatic rice. The dessert of choice here is firni, a delicious creamy rice-based pudding.
