S N Banerjee Road, KOLKATA
I have been visiting this place, for the last 7/8 years. This time it is official review of the outlet. This place is the oldest and most popular outlet of Aminia chain of restaurants in Kolkata. If there is one place to enjoy biryani and non vegetarian food in Kolkata, it’s at Aminia! Ask the locals!!!
The place is over crowded with foodies but expect to be seated in no more than 10-15 minutes. It’s not a posh restaurant sort of an arrangement but all of that won’t matter once the food arrives on your table. A perfect destination if you thrive on Mughlai food, the Aminia Biryani is quite famous in Kolkata.
I had Chicken Reshmi Kabab which lived up to the Aminia Class. However the Biryani disappointed me; the rice could easily have been better. But the piece of chicken as well as mutton was good. Also had chicken chaap; if the Chicken piece was good, the gravy was out of the world. Go for it; you won’t regret!
The biryani, mutton dishes and phirni are must haves. The prices are seriously reasonable for taste that beats the best of 5 star establishments.
Must visit each time you’re in Kolkata.
