Restaurant Review: Dilligate, Kolkata

Manjari Chowdhury and Rakhee S. Dutta represented KFB at the Launch of the Dilligate Restaurant in Kolkata. She writes:

"A joint venture with a joint menu of  lip smacking food from North West India , Calcuttan Chinese and Mughlai dishes. Located in the Eastern hub of the city of Joy this place is a much needed multi-cuisine restaurant for the area.

I was invited as part of the Kolkata Food Bloggers to sample their divert menu. Locating the restaurant is not very difficult. If you are going from Park Circus keep an eye on the left hand side of the road and you shall reach the area within 10 minutes from Park Circus.
The interiors is done in green but the chairs and tables seem very comfortable to sit in, big back rest with cushioned chairs. One side of the wall is lined with pictures of street food be it the hearty punjabi food, the delicate noodles or the Mughlai Paraunthes.
This restaurant is the brain child of Mr.Manish Singh from the ever popular Balwant Singh Dhaba at Elgin road and Mr. Mukesh Agarwal.
What caught my attention was that the owners let us know that this is essentially a 'budget restaurant where it wouldn't cost more than Rs300 to Rs400 per person.' They have made their menu and pricing keeping the recession in mind and that is worth appreciating. The idea is to make available dishes from different cuisines so that one does not get bored with the same kind of cuisine."

"Recently, I got a e-mail invite to attend the launch of new restaurant called Dilligate as a member of the Kolkata Food Bloggers. Initially, I was a bit hesitant to go without my family, especially my little S, who loves eating out. Due my hubby's constant encouragement and some prodding, I just decided to take the plunge and go ahead. When I entered the venue, it was pleasantly spacious and cool. The ambiance was soothing with low lighting. Being my first time, I was quite nervous. I was met at the door by the smiling PR personnel who escorted me inside. There I met Manjari (Chowdhury), my fellow KFBian and we got chatting with each other. 
In the meantime, the starters were being served. I tasted the Hara Bhara Kebab (INR 145) and Crispy Chilly Baby Corn (INR 140)."
