*for quick review of Saptapadi scroll down to our foodie-meter below.
Being a Bengali, native dishes are so often made in our family. So you can realise that I do not crave Bengali dishes unless they are really unique and great in taste, in a word my taste buds will get high with taste! Such an exception is SAPTAPADI Restaurant chain of Kolkata under the supervision of two renowned chef Mr.Ranjan Biswas and Mr.Swarup Mondal.
In the middle of the year 2011, this restaurant has started a journey of creating history and the same is still going on. Let me tell you the story of our visit to this fine quality restaurant. So stay glued to the end for a detailed review.
We went to there for lunch after doing a little shopping in the neighbourhood.
This branch of Saptapadi is situated almost opposite of Gangulybagan Bigbazar shop . The food joint is behind another shop but a hoarding with arrow is there to guide you.
The Google address of this restaurant is :
G, 40, Raja Subodh Chandra Mallick Road, opp.
Ganguly Bagan, Kusum Kanan,
Garia, Kolkata, West Bengal 700084
As soon as we stepped inside we were greeted with warm welcome. Ever smiling manager made us felt like in our own family. The interior is decorated with framed posters of the legendary couple of Bengali films- Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen. In fact the restaurant is named after their eternal hit movie of the same name. Soothing modern Bengali songs were playing to refresh us. All the dishes were served in clay pots even the water also.
The waiters were ready to help us with the menu and took a little more than 15 minutes to serve the starter. Whenever we have asked for , were attended without fail.
The varieties of dishes in the menu card had astonished us and we took little bit time to decide. We had ordered Murgi Sobar opore, Vetki Paturi, Rasoon Vetki Paturi, Dab Chingri, Luchi & Kochi Pathar Jhol, Saptapadi Abhinava Mangso and plain rice.
Murgi Sobar opore:
Crispy fried chicken pieces with a coating and poke with a stick. A perfect appetizer.
Vetki Paturi& Rasoon vetki paturi :
The vetki paturi was one of the great paturi’s we have ever had. Rasoon Vetki paturi had a unique smell of garlic which was fascinating. The vetki fish were fresh in both cases.
Dab Chingri :
This one pretty ordinary, a little on sweeter side but tastes great with plane rice.
Luchi & Kochi Pathar Jhol:
Now you have reading the mind blowing Bengali combination and Saptapadi had totally nailed it. We all had a devilish grin in our faces after tasting this delicacy.
Saptapadi Abhinava Mangso:
This was a speciality mutton dish of the restaurant. A bit spicy with a smell of roasted black pepper.

The starter and dab chingri had four and six pieces respectively. The mutton curry had four pieces.
We felt quite economical and that’s good.
Though they had maintained proper hygiene at every place, the washroom felt little off.
