If Kolkata is a land of comfortable contradictions, then Jaganmata Bhojonalay is the ultimate example.

Kolkata is considered to be the hub of old tales blended with old, new, opulence side by side. One will find innumerable stories in every nook and corner of the street of North Kolkata.


If you want an authentic and memorable culinary experience that is garnished with loads of history in one platter that this place has to offer. Kolkata holds the old-warm charms that few metros boast of. A 120-year-old eatery that serves mouth-watering authentic Bengali (not just Bengali food, we repeat) food! One such example is Jaganmata Bhojonalay. If you visit this place, one will find framed photographs hanging of the founders proudly near the cash counter.

The British architecture, old royal buildings, and charming streets all testify to that. Feel like eating home-cooked food on a wintery afternoon then we suggest this place is apt for you. No bill. Payment in cash is what they believe. The 120 -year-old hotel in north Calcutta is still run by the members of the founder’s family. No doubt, Jaganmata Bhojonalay place sprays an air of nostalgia.


A place lost in the lap of time. About a century back, this same hotel used to be the pulse for college-goers, office-workers who would stay in Kolkata for work purposes and looking for a place to eat.
