Review: Christopher George
Set in the heart of Central London, on the back streets of Covent Garden, Little Kolkatan is a hidden gem, offering a tapas version of modern Bengali influenced Indian cuisine from Kolkata.
Unlike general Indian restaurants offering delicious but heavy foods, Little Kolkata offers lighter versions and smaller dishes to share in the tapas style- where you can indulge in several options.
The restaurant is set in an almost 1950s style, with booths, stooled tables and a canteen vibe for a more relaxed dining experience, which is much more welcoming after rushing around the capital between work, shopping or the theatre.
The staff are casual, friendly and attentive with their service, and the booths offer more privacy if you would prefer a more intimate meal! The atmosphere is great for a chilled lunch or dinner, with the menu offering a range of dishes and sufficient mix of vegetarian and fish options. If like us at SoEdited, you have cut out the meat, and always looking for delicious veggie choices, Little Kolkata has a great selection.
One of the most appealing items about Indian food is the vast variety and flavours for vegetarians and vegans, which includes the delicious Indian deserts. Enjoy an Indian beer from the well stocked bar, or try the non alcohol drinks such as the traditional lassie.
If you enjoy a lots of options, spices, and freshly cooked food, Little Kolkata will welcome and feed to your hearts content!
