Five popular Bengali restaurants in Gurgaon
Gurgaon loves to experiment with its food and restaurants as Cyber Hub is a testimony to the fact. Bengalis in Gurgaon, too, are adventurous and experiment with food a lot. Gone are the days when Luchi bhaja and begun bhaja would be the patent Sunday breakfast in every bengali household or Mutton kosha and rooti would follow at night. Now, since bengalis have travelled the world (and the Gurgaon crowd is well travelled group) Pasta, fettuccine, bacon and ham have made it into a bengali fridge.

However, inspite of this wider perspective of the world (which we love), once in a while every bengali wants to have wholesome bengali food- a taste, which is no longer normal in their household, but feels like a distant cousin, who comes to visit once a while. While this might sound too dramatic, but most young bengalis prefer to go out and have Illish Macher jhaal or muger daal with loochi and Chingri Malai curry, rather than make it at home. This is where the A-rated Gurgaon bengali restaurants thrive. There are just five well known Bengali restaurants and if anyone is in doubt as to where to go, read along and decide for yourself where to have this Sunday's lunch.

Oh Calcutta- Situated in DLF Cyber City, in Cyber Hub, this place attracts you from its exterior. The restaurants glass is beautifully painted with Howrah Bridge and scenes from Kolkata and instantly takes you back to those by gone days and by gones lanes.

According to Zomato users reviews, based on 193 votes, this restaurant gets a decent 3.6 rating out of 5. One Rituparna Borah says, ''I am a fan of bengali food. I had been to Oh! Calcutta in Bengal and in Nehru place. I find the food quite expensive. Therefore, I dont go there often, but once a while. The food served is also not expectionally brilliant but good. I have tasted amazing Bengali food in other places in Bengal. THis place did not have anything made of mocha... Its sad. As I love mochar ghonto.
I love the drink Kal Boishakhi there.''

Another person, Ayush Pratap also contributes, ''Explored this place last month on my weekend visit to Cyber Hub. We all friends with kids were searching for place where there is not huge waiting so find this one accidentally.
Nice cosy place with good ambience & comfortable seating.
Being a North Indian and that too vegetarian who doesn't love relish much garlic was skeptical about the food. Ordered Chano daal, Bhindi & Aloo posto with Luchi & roti. Followed by Veg biryani.
We go out to try food but unknowingly also look for the food similar to home not too spicy or oily. Food is awesome. Like to enjoy the food where the original taste is not subdued due to spices or gravy. Dal & Biryani are must try simply loved the taste. Bhindi & aloo posto also very different from our north indian preparations and very good.
Also loved their unique dips which are served with food esp the curd & cucumber one as it was refilled 3 times and we were just bingig on it like anything.
Icing on the cake was desert as we ordered bhappo sandesh (steamed Sandesh ) It can give run for money to any cheese cake very good and healthy.
I was wondering why not tried the Bengali food earlier. Worth trying food.

Sonar Bangla- Situated in Palam Vihar, Gurgaon this place is cosy and not too heavy on the pocket. A good budget restaurant, this place is good for the pocket as well as the soul. Being rated 3 out of 5, this place is better known for its sweets. 

As per his zomato review, Debjyoti wrote, ''Had a quick visit to this eatery few months back. Will elaborate on the review after trying out all (atleast few more) their dishes, as of now I had just tried their sweet dishes and they were not bad. Being a bengali myself, the sweets available in Kolkata can never be found elsewhere but this can be termed as a home away from home (for bengali mishti lovers). The place was not that big but I really appreciated the wall having all the snippets of old bengali cinema biggies - Ray, Uttam, Suchitra, Madhabi, Soumitra, etc. Tries to capture the true smell and spirit of bengal in some way.''

Ki Hangla- This eating joint is known for its service. Inspite of being crowded, people are courteous and serves their customer with a smile. Situated in DLF Phase 4, this restaurant all the sinful bengali dishes.

Voted 3.6 out of 5 in Zomato, this place is small and quaint. A reviewer, who frequents the place said, ''Ki Hangla is located at at one of the most under-rated (others may like to differ) eating place in Supermart, Gurgaon. It has a very ordinary seating arrangement and the place is quite small. However when you grab the menu, it is really exhaustive and provides ample choices to satiate one's appetite with Bengali food.''

Maach Bhaat- Self acclaimed Oriya restaurant, this place also makes good Bengali food. Recently opened in Sector 17, this place is small yet it's food is garnering a lot of eyeballs.

Voted 3.7 out of 5 in Zomato, this place is very popular among its regulars.

A reviewer in zomato said, ''Visited the place for lunch with my wife and daughter early this month after some suggestions from Gurgaon Foodies and had a lovely time.

The restaurant is small but a neat and cosy place. The owner lady was polite and eagerly guiding the team through the orders. We ordered Surmai jhol and special veg thali. Both were served hot and were tasty. Phulkas went very well with the fish...and were light on the stomach too. Unfortunately there were no desserts ....which definitely gives us a reason to go back to this restaurant quickly. Another thing we liked was that they serve this small cold-drink bottles so you can have a variety and ensures fizz as well. Our little one survived pretty much on one of these only.''

34 Chowringhee Lane- The name itself spells that it is a bengali restaurant and a very famous one among people who loves street food. Situated in sector 23, the place is popular among the locals.
