Little Kolkata | Covent Garden Indian Restaurant
Kolkata is the 4th largest city in the world, covering an area of around 750 sq miles in West Bengal.
Little Kolkata, on the other hand covers a cosy, one floor space in Covent Garden. With a private dining room.
It’s the soon-to-be permanent home to the supperclub of the same name, which has been selling out its events for years, thanks to their authentic, vibrantly flavoured, delicious Bengali feasts. The space itself will be colourfully decked out to reflect the dynamic spirit of big Kolkata, with bright red & blue walls, plentiful pendant lighting, and a black & white tile floor.
On the menu, you can expect typical dishes to include sharing plates of Maacher cutlet (a cod fish cutlet served with the typical Calcuttan mustard sauce Kashundi); and Lilish Maacher Deemer, which is a spiced fish egg from the Hilsa. And for dessert? There’ll be a Calcutta Mishti Doi , a baked sweet yoghurt; and the Cardamom coffee brownie with rose ice-cream, which has been inspired by the famous Swiss patisserie in Calcutta, Flury’s.
The spices don’t end at the food either, with the cocktails getting in on the action too – you’ll be able to order the likes of a Saffron Spritz, or the Indian Summer Garden which is loaded with fragrant jasmine vodka.
NOTE: Little Kolkata is due to open in late June/early July. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can find out more at their website right HERE.
