INSIDER TIPS

  • The kitchen here is headed by karigars brought in all the way from Lucknow’s famous Tunday-wali gali
  • Unlike most places in Kolkata, Oudh 1590 keeps potatoes out of the biryani. In a city that cannot imagine biryani without potatoes in it, this is a courageous call
  • Make reservations in advance. Evenings are especially crowded and there is a queue, almost always

The feeling is one of walking onto the sets of Satyajit Ray’s Shatranj ke Khilari, which we hear, has in fact, inspired the gorgeous interiors of this period dining destination that serves classic Awadhi cuisine. Ornate wooden panels, colourful Mughal murals and cut-glass lamps have been used to recreate the grandeur of the royal court of Awadh. But this 55-seater restaurant (it now has a branch in the Salt Lake area) has earned its reputation on the strength of its melt-in-the-mouth galouti kababs, best paired with some flaky Lucknawi parathas, and a range of ‘Dum Pukht’ style biryani. The surprisingly light and aromatic Awadhi handi biryani and the ghee-soaked raan biryani served in rustic earthen pots, and the nahari khaas (essentially a breakfast stew but served all day at Oudh), are some of their best dishes. Vegetarians can satiate their biryani cravings with the Awadhi palak biryani. The food is served on bespoke brass crockery for that extra regal touch.
