Once again i am back with some North Indian eating experience sharing after a long time and it has to be non other than Rang De Basanti Dhaba,but wait a minute as this time it was in a fresh new location that they have opened up at Ballygunge Circular Road. Yes you read that right which means more place options to get your favourite Dhaba food. You don’t need to travel all the way to it’s other wings in the city to feast some delicious food,just head to this one and you will be amazed with its spacious and well organized 84 seater arrangements. The restaurant just looks stunning with it’s creative decor reflecting the chilled out ambiance around. Speaking about creativity you cannot miss out the huge signature tractor that they have placed right at the entrance very much similar to it’s other branch restaurants. Then there is the Tea kettle and other structures replacing the lamp holders that you usually see for lights anywhere. The cutlery and table chairs are very much different than a usual restaurant that you see. The wall frames and Truck Tyre put up have fun filled Bollywood inspired pictures as well as quotes on it which keeps you busy viewing them while your food comes to the table. The main aspect behind the decor is to create a fusion element overall for customers to feel the desi vibe and have the comfort on top priority as well. I must applaud the management for keeping a fresh new approach and give everyone such a well lit place.
Coming to the hospitality that you can expect from here is absolutely splendid ,the management are one of the finest in the Industry. The staff knows their job on point and are courteous to the max. The alertness and helping nature does convince one to come back again and dine is actually a plus factor out here.
And above all it’s the food that is a clear winner of this restaurant which can give any Punjabi Dhaba eating place in Kolkata a run for their money. Now when i say they are impressive means there are reasons ,starting from the quality,quantity,presentation and ending with hygiene definitely ticks all the boxes.
From here i have tried out couple of food and drinks which have simply stunned me starting with NIMBU PUDINA SARBAT that was simply a refreshing start on my table. The drink was a lime based one that was mixed along with pudina leaves,totally recommended. Next followed up was starters ACHARI MUSHROOM TIKKA and AFGANI MURG. The Mushroom dish was a lovely affair to eat as it was flavoured with pickle spices well marinated. The Chicken dish was well made with succulent flavour’s and the texture was soft and nice exactly how i like eating my Chicken the Afgani way. After the starters came the main course which was LACCHA PARATHA,MASALA KULCHA served along with CHICKEN CHATPATA & CHICKEN BHARTA. The Paratha was made nice and crisp but soft as well on tearing in to pieces. It went along with the Bharta as it was very delicious on taste and had a perfect combination indeed. The Kulcha was already spiced up however it did not stop me from experimenting it along with the Chicken Chatpata dish that was a bit tangy and totally spiced in nature as well. It actually turned out to be a unique pairing that i can recommend others now onwards as it definitely worked in my favour.
After trying those dishes one cannot leave Rang De Basanti Dhaba in Kolkata without trying out their BIRYANI,and it was really satisfactory to have their Chicken Biryani which was light on spice,served along with a big piece of Chicken along that instantly get’s an addiction to finish the bowl of Biryani,thanks to it’s preparation that calls for more reasons to indulge in great food here.
But a meal is not over unless it’s really over with some sweetness and for that you need to get the KESARIA PHIRNI & GAJAR KA HALWA without a doubt from here. Both these desserts are out of this world,no words can describe the beauty and taste of these lovely dishes. If you happen to dine here do order them and finish off your eating perfectly. Well that’s all for this blog and i had a super great time here and look forward for more visits in this new location. So if you like Punjabi style of food then this is your place to come without any hesistation.
Congratulations to RDBD BALLYGUNGE CIRCULAR ROAD !
