Azad Hind Dhaba, Salt Lake City, Kolkata

Sometime in 2013, I visited Kolkata for the first time. We were only there for a few days and dined out almost every night. 

As the Azad Hind Dhaba had been highly recommended and was almost right round the corner for us, we popped in for a dinner. 

Rather unassuming on the outside, it's the décor which is its USP. 

The food was nothing much but not so bad either. Sadly, I've only this picture of the accompaniments. 

It's a cosy, homely sort of place and, while you wait for your order, you can enjoy the wall art.

Very typical of the art that decorates the back of many an Indian lorry.

I love peeking into restaurant kitchens. But I think this was on the outside.

The staff was very friendly and made us feel very much at home.

As we emerged, replete, we rejoiced in the sight of the Azad Hind home delivery motorcycles.

I've just noticed that their website has recipes: A Paneer dish, a Kali dal, a chicken and a mutton curry! 

The website is as entertaining as a visit to one of their outlets.
