Doing Kolkata Proud
on Dec 20, 2017
I have been in and out to Taj Bengal for decades.It keeps getting better.On December 19,2017,I was there again, to the familiar hospitality and friendliness.All my preferences and I might add 'eccentricities'had been catered to before I was ushered to my room.The neatness was impeccable and the recent renovation of rooms had made them more comfortable. Every one from the butler-Prodipto-to the Front Office manager-Karan- to the GM, himself Samrat Dutta-were epitome of attention and I might add kindness.Soon after my check in I had a lunch engagement with the Chairman of my host organisation. That did not prevent Samrat(GM) from breezing in to remind me that he was there,just in case I needed him!

Though the Taj never fails to deliver, I have had some experiences otherwise in the past.
Was a little unsure if I should stay at Taj Bengal considering many other newer alternates.
But I can now safely say it was the right choice Baby! The staff and service is always par excellence at the Taj and so it was at Taj Bengal. The hotel has recently refurbished some floors and rooms. We were fortunate to be offered the newly done up rooms. The room had the view of the hotel pool and Victoria Memorial. It was beautiful. The redone room was modern and very comfortable.
Do not miss the evening tea service on the lobby floor and the Jhal moori which is complimentary to hotel guests. The Jhal moori is the best I have ever had! The breakfast spread was massive but since we were in a rush we got the hotel to make us a hamper. Excellent cheese and ham sandwiches and an assortment of muffins, doughnuts and Danish pastry.
1 night was too less for the hotel. Next time a longer stay for sure!
Thank you to all at Taj who looked after us. Thank you Taj - your hospitality is exemplary!!
Sonargaon restaurant Taj Bengal

My first visit to the City of Joy and as an ardent fan, I dropped in at Taj Bengal, Belvedere Road, Kolkata. A must visit for everyone visiting Kolkata.
Palatial property with breath taking views, situated right in the centre.
Sonargaon is indeed a village of Gold for Indian food lovers (North western frontier province). Awesome menu, must admit good number of dishes for vegetarians like me.
Chef Giri, Koithara, staff Beth, Priyadarshan and all are very supportive.
Do try Gur (Jaggery) ice cream.
Prior reservation is highly recommended.
Table for 2 with Mocktails is INR 4000 plus GST
