    Crab Momos At Santa’s Fantasea

    Santa's Fantasea

    Salt Lake, Kolkata

    Santa’s Fantasea serves tribal dishes of Sikkim, Nagaland, Odisha and more. They have a tribal-themed wallpaper and statues. If you love seafood, this is the place for you.

The Ngatok is a fish dish inspired by the cuisine of Nagaland with melt-in-your mouth fresh fish which comes at INR 240 a plate. We also can’t get enough of their seafood rice and noodles which start at INR 180 for a serving large enough for two.

    Octopus At Ecstasea

    This hidden gem in Tangra has been around for years. Have a bowl of fish ball soup to beat the monsoon blues. A portion for two comes for INR 240. Add a fried chilli prawn at INR 210 on the side to add a little spice – it’s topped with fried onions and chillies.

    Bengali Seafood At Fish Fish

    Fish Fish

    Ballygunge, Kolkata

    Satisfy Bangali maachh craving at Fish Fish which has a limitless option for fish dishes. The good news is most starters are served per piece so you can have a variety. The Maccher Dimer Roast at INR 150 and Bhetki Maccher Jhuri Bhaaja at INR 125 will leave you satiated. The Chingri Maachh Diye Moong Dal {INR 150} is unique and the intensity of flavour is unparalleled.

    Fish & Chips at My Big Fat Belly

    My Big Fat Belly

    Ballygunge, Kolkata

    The BFB fish and chips is seriously crispy-fried {it literally makes an embarrassingly loud crunching noise when you bite into it}. The mayo-mustard dip that it comes with takes the dish to the next level. At INR 189+, it is one of the most pocket-friendly versions of the English favourite available.

    Bisque At Ocean Grill

    Ocean Grill

    Salt Lake, Kolkata

    The sharks on the wall and a ship-shaped buffet table set the mood for an under-the-sea experience. If you have watched enough Masterchef you know that bisques pack a punch and the Ocean Grill Special Bisque soup is no exception. At INR 170 for a serving, the clear light soup has flavours of shrimp, crab and white fish singing through.
