An Eye On The Past : Oudh 1590

To experience Nawabi cuisine at a royal banquet of Awadh you need to pay a visit to this place at Kolkata! Its soft lighting and soothing ambience and sumptuous meal is something which would satisfy anyone to the core.



I have been there and this is the first place which comes to my mind when I think of excellent biryani and succulent kababs.At the entrance there was the doorman who had a giant moustache and once you step inside you would definitely be taken back to the times of Nawabi era.The place recreates a royal feel with minute detailed designs on wooden panels, beautiful Mughal-era paintings, chandeliers and statues. Being impressed by the ambience at first this place will surely impress you by its quality of food too.


Foods we ordered were :

1)Aam Khaas– – This chilled refreshing drink is best to start with to slake your thirst, tangy raw mango flavoured, pepper powder and sugar adding slight sweetness to it .It almost tasted like Aam Panna and was served as normal drinks are served but could have been served in Nawabi style .

2)Zafrani kabab(Chicken)– This delicious kabab with aroma of the zafran is juicy, succulent soft pieces of chicken.This kebab with green chutney and onion salad will hit your senses in every bite you take.

3)Murgh Biryani– Who wouldn’t love a heavenly, succulent plate of biryani? Biryanis are served in earthen handis. When the seal is removed , a whiff of zafran and ghee is sure to increase your hunger. This biriyani had two pieces of chicken in it. The dish was prepared to perfection in dum pukht style and is enough for two people.


4)Anaras Raita– If you want a cooling and refreshing side dish for any meal then try this; a perfect blend of pineapple chunks and creamy yogurt .I bet you will not regret ordering this.

You can also try the luscious desserts after the hefty meal J

The food started coming in after some long wait but I would say it was worth waiting. The food served here is amazing and can not be found anywhere else in the city with such an awesome royal ambience.This place will surely not disappoint you.

The place is located close to City Center, Saltlake Sector 1,Kolkata at CD block.
