The Festival

Speaking about the festival, Chef Sushanta Sengupta said, “Ilish festival is synonymous with 6 Ballygunge Place and it has become a part of our yearly festival calendar. We started this festival much before other restaurants. However, the availability of the good and fresh Ilish becomes a concern at times and hence we time our festival with the availability of fresh fish. This year we have innovative items like Purbhora morich Ilish, Badami Ilish maacher roast, Aam Tel Ilish etc.”

The service is courteous. You’ll be served by well-trained staff whose topmost priority is not just to serve food but make sure that you enjoy it as well. The minimilastic decor adds to the ‘wow’ factor of the restaurant, with not-too-funky but sophisticated motifs all around. Approximately Ballygunge has a capacity of 70-80.

Final Words

This perfect combination of ambiance, taste and service can be found in Ballygunge at a not so pocket-friendly price. But, it’s worth it. Once you have come to this place, Ballygunge becomes that one destination where you should go out of your place for.
