    Goldbrick, Mukti World is a house of multi cuisine restaurant. Whether it is Chinese or south Indian dishes, you get it all here. Nice ambiance, superb service, a complete example to set nostalgic environment everywhere.

    Bluzz, Mukti World is one of the finest lounge bars in Kolkata. I really enjoy the music out there. It has a class of crowd visiting there which makes the place even more happening.

    Very bad experience at Lazeez at Elgin Road. They cheat people by making extra quantity billing. If you don’t check your bill you will pay extra amount . If anybody points out this, they will say sorry it was a mistake.
