Ei path jodi na sesh hoe tobe kamon hoto tumi boloto... This Bengali love anthem featuring veteran actors Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen from the 1961 iconic movie Saptapadi has been our all-time favourite and when we learnt that we have a restaurant themed around the movie, we couldn't help but drop in with our squad.
One of the coolest themed restaurants in town, Saptapadi is where every Bengali movie fan has to go for lunch. Plus, if you're a true connoisseur of traditional Bong food, then you have to visit this restaurant. Soulful tunes from the the movie Saptapadi greeted us upon entering the restaurant. From serving food in traditional crockery to wooden furniture and black and white pictures from Saptapadi adorned the walls (totally Insta-worthy!).
We ordered for the Lichu Lanka welcome drink along with chicken nuggets. The place is known for serving delicious thalis so we obviously had to try it. We went for their special Saptapadi Jumbo Thali, priced at INR 880. It had the staples - assorted bhajas, daal, shukto, ilish mach, chingri mach, bhetki paturi, mutton kosha, chicken kosha and desserts, in short a perfect gastronomic delight. From the a la carte menu we opted for Kolkata Fish Fry, Mishti Pulao and Chanar Kofta.
Of course, how can a traditional Bengali meal be complete without fish? We'd definitely recommend trying Bhetki Paturi and Chingri Malaikari. Meat lovers, go for their Sutanutir Bhuna Mangsho - cooked with curry leaves, this is one of the yummiest chicken dishes we've ever tasted with just the right amount of spice. We thought a Bong meal must end with Mishti Doi. So, we ordered for some and it tasted heavenly! We're definitely going back for more and we're sure you will to!
All the dishes on the a la carte menu are priced between INR 150-500.
