Description: 6 Ballygunge Place is the flagship restaurant of Savourites Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. Till 2003, Kolkata did not have any specialty eatery worth the depth of Bengali cuisine. Savourites came with a unique blockbuster named after the address "6 Ballygunge Place". A specialty eatery serving Bengali cuisine was commissioned after thorough research into cookbooks of the Tagore Era. As they say 'the rest is history'. Today 6 Ballygunge Place is housed in an exclusive Rai Bahadur Bunglow, 100 years old and retained the Old World Charm in architecture and minimalist decor. Visit the place and savor the authentic Bengali Cuisine at its best.

I wanted to review their food as i heard lot about this place..Visited for Dinner and checked their Buffet which is just average nothing exception.I decided for the Veg buffet,had just few items-Rice,dal,2 Curries,and dessert .

The potato curry ( aloo Dum ) was flat and do not have much of taste same goes for the pointed gourd (potoler curry),could not find anything.The Pullao was decent and had some aroma.In dessert there was baked Gulab Jamun which was just ok .Am not sure about the Ala carte service and taste but the buffet was not upto the mark

I would surely rate Aheli much high in regard to authenticity,presentation and taste.6 ballygunj might be budget friendly but falls flat on taste.Its completely a overrated and hyped place

It is an institution and I was worried that it wouldn’t live up to expectations, but it was a delicious experience and very elegant surroundings. Very good vegetarian food indeed and of the mishti doi is luscious . Certainly put it on your foodie visit to the city .

I have went several times to this place with my family n foods are really tasty. You can feel real bengali taste here, love to go there.
Behavior of staff is also nice and the environment is also very good. Parking place is available just beside the resturent. Overall I have enjoyed the place very much
