The Big Ben -- Eating
1 & 2 Little Russel Street
Average meal for two: US$ 18
The Big Ben - the elite English pub at the Kenilworth hotel for Kolkatans in need of some rejuvenation! The elegant woodwork, splendid stained glasses, life-size photograph of the Big Ben overlooking the Thames, and
the mock glow-signs along the walls help to create a truly English pub-like atmosphere. Except on Mondays, members and their guests can do just about anything at this 105-cover nightspot - sip international liquors and
cocktails, tuck into the mouthwatering food from around the world, try a
hand at pool or play the touch-screen video game or the electronic dart board, and even dance! The Best Barman of India, 1999, awardee, Irfan Ahmed, will serve an inexhaustible range of cocktails for you, while you tuck into ocean-fresh prawn teriyaki, chatpata tofu, malmali reshmi kebab, Big Ben's fish-and-chips, and vegetarian Thai curry. Sunday lunches are a hit with kids coming with their parents to enjoy the kids-special afternoon.
