Head to this vegetarian restaurant on Camac Street for full prison-like feels. It's a luxurious fine-dining jail. Take a seat inside one of their jail cells and enjoy your meal surrounded by jailors and prisoners (the staff is dressed in prison attire) under dim lights with handcuffs hanging from the ceiling. There's also a jail cabin for a more private dining experience.
The Royal Bengal Tiger Cafe
We found an unusual tiger-themed cafe in Tollygunge that we think you must visit. It's a vibrant and colourful space with walls filled with paintings and pictures of the big endangered cat aimed at raising awareness on them. There's also a vast collection of books on tigers that you can browse while munching on sandwiches and fries.

The drinks are all molecular gastronomy inspired while tables are topped with peppermint cigarettes and origami.
