188+ User Votes to help you find the Best Japanese Restaurants in Kolkata in India. Kolkata, which was earlier known as Calcutta, is the capital of the Indian state of West Bengal. It is the principal commercial, cultural, and educational centre of the Eastern India, while the Port of Kolkata is India’s oldest operating port as well as its sole major riverine port. As of 2011, the city had 4.5 million residents; the urban agglomeration, which comprises the city and its suburbs, was home to approximately 14.1 million, making it the third-most populous metropolitan area in India.
It is one of the fast developing cities of India, having a large number of foreigners working in the city. These foreigners are offered quality, indigenous food at the most affordable prices. If they are working there, they obviously need to have good food. A machine cannot work smoothly, without having the adequate amount of petrol in it. Similarly, these foreigners need to get food. We have a lot of IT firms in Kolkata, where people from some of the tech-savvy countries are working in huge numbers. One such country is Japan. Kolkata is also an ideal tourist location.
I have a friend of mine from Japan, who came to meet me in my hometown Kolkata. So, I had to look for some Japanese Restaurants for him, so that he does miss his family much. As a good and responsible friend, I prepared this table. It helped him to choose the best restaurant. I hope it helps many more like him.
Most of these restaurants provide hard drinks with the food offered, as this is the ideal way of having Japanese Food. These places are ideal for going with a large group of your near and dear ones and enjoy the unique ambience that will make you fall in love with the place. I took my friend there. He was not even ready to come back. He said that he was willing to stay in the restaurant itself for the whole day. I planned to take my parents also to these restaurants. So, you also go and enjoy! Have great food with mind-blowing drinks!
The red snazzy signage on a brand new apartment building announces the restaurant. However, the locality beats all logic. With stagnant waterbodies, waste odour, mosquito infested surroundings – an Oriental bloom! Maybe, because they say lotus only blooms in such conditions.
The menu starts with a Japanese stunt. Miso Soup, Sushi platters, Teriyaki and Yakitori, Gyoza, Udon and Soba noodles, Josiko curry and the works. Followed by a regular dose of Chinese and Thai. What actually stumps us is a totally unnecessary Indian selection of kebabs, curries and breads at the tail end. Of course, our meal is all about Japanese, though we start with a Chinese soup: Wasabee Special Soup with Glass Noodles with seafood. Moving on, we order a portion of Nigiri – Nori wrapped sushi with filling of smoked salmon, crabmeat, cucumber and asparagus, Teriyaki fish, Yakitori Paneer , non vegetarian Yaki Soba noodles.
With designated areas for each of the cuisines that it offers, from East and South-East Asia, Pan Asian in ITC Sonar is a delight for the gourmet, the connoisseur… the foodie! This elegantly designed signature restaurant covers a substantial area, and houses a one-of-a-kind wine library, consisting of the world’s finest vintages. There’s an interactive island, too, with the Teppanyaki griddle and Yakitori-style cooking — and this is hugely popular with their guests. The menu is elaborate and the expert team of chefs tosses up culinary delights from Korean barbecue to Mongolian brazier to Thai stir-fry to Chinese hot pot and Japanese sushi box. If there’s a very special occasion that you’d like to celebrate with someone very special, you’ll be pleased to know that Pan Asian organizes an exotic weekend brunch — at premium prices, of course — that is simply mind-blowing.

When Matsuri restaurant was opened in 1993 in the heart of Mayfair, we introduced not only traditional Japanese food, such as sushi and tempura, but also a new style of Japanese cuisine, Teppan-yaki, aimed at bringing the Japanese eating experience closer to Londoners’ hearts. The name 'Matsuri', which means 'festival' in Japanese, was chosen because Japanese festivals were traditionally linked to harvests and seen as a way of celebrating the best produce in each region.

Really neat. Right off the street through a glass facade, delicate cherry blossoms adorn the main wall. Tradition inspired framed artworks, artistic Japanese inscribed tables and cushioned bench seating, bamboo placemats, suspended warm lighting sets a zen-like tone. The kitchen wall reflects the typical latticed wood and translucent rice- paper partition
The menu is longer than we expected, with more than just Sushi. There is a whole section of Thai, but we are told they will not serve it here at all, it will be opened as a separate restaurant nearby, shortly. Sensible decision. My weakness for good Japanese food and craving for Sushi takes over. We start with traditional Miso Soup (Rs. 150), Chicken Yakitori (Rs.300) and Prawn Tempura (Rs. 450). A selection of sushi follows – Smoked Salmon Roll (Rs. 230), Boston Roll (Rs. 230), Salmon Nigiri (Rs. 275) and added a Shitake Mushroom Roll (Rs 200) just as an afterthought. This was followed by a bowl of Chicken Soba Noodles (Rs.300).

The Oriental-speciality restaurant, The Wall, comes as a surprise of sorts, both pleasant and otherwise. This is a place where you’ll get to taste exotic dishes — the Nigiri Sushi, Maki Roll, Teriyaki and dim sums — which one normally finds in five-star hotels, but not as expensive! Their offerings are delicious, and if you have a weakness for Japanese food, you could try the Tempura Platter, Miso Soup with Tofu, assorted Sushi and Grilled Chicken Teriyaki. Popular in the Chinese menu are the Sui Mai, Crab Claws, Crab Rangoog and Chicken Soong, Fish in Spicy Oyster Sauce and the Barbecue Pork Chops. They had introduced Bento Boxes in both veg and non-veg options, but unfortunately — and surprisingly — these Bentos are not meant for takeaways!

It is a much smaller space than we expect, nestled in the hubbub of the orthodox part of Hazra Road, the lit signage opens right onto a junction – giving a much welcome sense of light. The murals on the façade depict scenes from different parts of the Orient.
Covering a large part of Oriental Asia – China, Japan, Korea, Tibet, Thailand and Mongolia – the menu is a well-researched blend. Our first learning is that the Asian Combo Lunch Box (Rs.225) conceptualized by the house chefs to cover all six countries everyday, is available only till 3.30pm. So we ramble on to discover all the cuisines on our own. We choose a Chinese Sichuan’s special Hot & Sour Chicken Soup (Rs.140) over our first choice Mongolian Lamb Hot Pot (Rs.325) turned down as not available, regular portions of Thai Glass Noodles Salad (Rs.195) and Crab Meat Egg Fried Rice (Rs.225), the Korean Sangeyopsal (Rs.495), an assorted Sushi Platter (Rs.495 for 12), a Mongolian Chicken Noodles in Hot Garlic Sauce (Rs.355) and a Thai Baked Coconut Custard (Rs. 215) – not available, yet again.

Have been to this restaurant with a year ago. Zodiac (Owned by ITC) stands immediately beside Lakeland Country Club in Howrah. I personally felt that though this restaurant is owned by an Indian marketing giant like ITC, the company is not really interested in it's marketing, resulting to less footfalls. I definitely feel that this place deserves a better footfall. Now about the food: Well the food was pretty good. We had ordered for Golden Fried Prawns in the starters and Gosht Rogan E Josh & Chicken Biryani in the main course. The starter was okay type but what we liked is their biryani preparation which tasted so different yet good. The mutton was also lip smacking.
