Calcutta Street Brixton

OPENED 76 DAYS AGO

Calcutta Street is the second Bengali restaurant from Shrimoyee Chakraborty, open in Brixton.

The restaurant serves home-style Bengali food, street food and cocktails, with a late licence until 1am.

Calcutta Street Team

The Spot:

There’s a big focus on making this a fun place to sit and eat so there are lots of bright colours and curiosities, including peacock feathers, neon signs, palm trees, film posters and murals. It’s inspired by the spirit of Calcutta’s energetic Park Street, which is full of restaurants and bars, and has been described as ‘the street that never sleeps.’

Calcutta Biryani

The Food:

The food is a mixture of street food, main dishes and small plates, so you’ll find kebabs and fried treats in the street food section, main dishes of rich crab curries and chicken chaap (chicken in a rich, poppy seed and cashew sauce), plus smaller plates of vegetables and lentils.

The Drinks:

The most exciting drinks here are shorbots, born on the streets of Calcutta. Long, refreshing drinks, they can be spiked with a complimentary spirit, although that’s not necessary; they’re designed to be reviving, so think flavours like mint, apple, ginger and chilli alongside star anise, clove and plum.

There’s also an attractive cocktail list, made with heady aromatics including Kaffir lime and rose.

Calcutta Prawns

The Damage:

Street food dishes are £4-5.50, large main courses £10-20 and small plates £3-6.50. Those shorbots are £5 soft and £8.50 with alcohol.

In a Nutshell:

This is a very welcome second site and we’ll be embracing the new direction they’ve taken with the party atmosphere and late licence. Fill up on sea bream steamed in banana leaf then get on with exploring that cocktail list into the wee hours.
