@ Planet - No problem I will carry packets of Britania Treat and that will take care of the treat part I suppose

BTW Rudrada has given me his contact no.s and pick-up location at Tollygaunge. Do let me know if someone else is picking him up. In that case I will head directly to the spot.

@ tathagata - nahi yaar! i was just kidding.

@ guys - can we please fix the venue for lunch/daaru?

options:
Sher-e-Punjab
Sanjha Chulha
Mishra's
Opium
Honey-da-Dhaba (somewhere near Salt Lake)
Somewhere in City Centre???

its better to avoid the restaurants @ Park Street - it will be way too crowded on Sunday + parking problems

please suggest.

I vote for Sher-e-Punjab. Have heard a lot of good things, but never been there.

Btw, I know of a Honey-ka-Dhaba very close to the Ultadanga crossing, opposite VSNL bldg. Are you talking about the same one?

Yeah same one, there aren't many Honey's who have a Dhaba!!

BTW have you guys considered O2. Its a joint (roof-top and even a glass walled lower floor - 6th or 7th I guess with a good view to the VIP road) just off the haldiram flyover towards the airport on the left. Ambience is really nice and they have parking facilities as well.

Drove on Rajarhat road today. The Salt Lake - VIP road stretch is in great shape... they recently fixed it (and it's survived the rains so far!!!!). The other side is in shambles... some parts have been patched up, but it's best avoided.
Regd rooftop restaurants - not the best of ideas during the monsoons.

My vote goes to Sher-e-Punjab.

Like I said, they have the floor below the roof too, with glass panels overlooking the VIP road, so no probs regarding the rain. Thise serves a variety of stuff from continental to Indian.

Read that as - you can touch 140-150 if you want to. Parts of that stretch is GQ quality.
Returning to salt lake via Rajarhat, should be done only if you have a RangeRover or likewise.

There used to be a particular Bus on 55 route, that used bend and buckle in every possible way, when the front wheels went into a pothole, the rear not even used to know. When it used to brake, the roof used to slowly move forward making the braking very soft for the standing passengers. Quite logically, hence, it had infinite number of expansion joints and I once had my finger cut on one such joint. BTW this particular bus, for some reason was very very fast and we BE Collegers used to love this bus.
