A piece of Awadh at Kolkata

Park Circus seven point crossing is gradually turning into an epitome of Mughlai and Awadhi cuisine hub. The Awadh Restaurant through its kitchen brings to Kolkata the taste of Chowk area from Lucknow. During my latest visit sampled from their succulent kebabs to long grain biryanis to creamy full bodied desserts. A good option for family dining. 

We had variety of kebabs and among them enjoyed the smoky flavour Chicken Angara Kebab. There is an interesting mutton minced kebab called Chapli Kebab griddle on hot tawa and prepared like paratha with oil. Unorthodox filling and texture for a kebab but would suggest all to try as this is not prepared every where. Another unique preparation was Murgh Dahiwale Tandoor where clay oven seared chicken served with spicy yogurt gravy.

Biryani was mind-blowing, try this will Chicken Lajawab. In case you prefer mutton then Bhuna Gosht is just an amazing preparation of boneless mutton pieces. Garlic Naan is alternative to enjoy the chicken or mutton gravy. Do note miss firni and sahi tukda in the desserts for a sweet note ending.

They have an option for valet parking too. Service is tad slow and unstructured but delicious food compensates the same.

Bro Tip: Must try Mutton Biryani, Chicken Angara Kebab, Mutton Bhuna Gosht, Firni and Sahi Tukda.
