Now the city of Kolkata has almost all international brands, from a Rolex watch shop to KFC. It has everything and this shows the city is developing. Calcutta already has Two KFC outlets and they have plans for more. Big Mac is also coming in Christmas time. They are opening 12 outlets. The backpackers will never be out of home and can have food of their choice for less than $5.

On third Nov06 we visited the Salt Lake outlet of KFC. It is here for more than a year now. For those who dont' know much about Kolkata, at one time our Communist local govt. has opposed opening any Western business houses, that has American links. That includes Coco Cola, Mc Donalds and so on. Now they are inviting foreign investments of any kind. It's a good sign.

Favorite Dish: We had the Chicken Burger, and Fried Chicken meal. It's value for money. we were served by a nice girl Preeti Gupta. But Munu could not eat much as she had a full stomach.

The meal costs Rs99 plus taxes. According to Indian taste they are also serving vegetarian meals and also rice meals. No wonder the local crowd are falling for them.

Address: City Centre, Salt Lake city.
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Ask for Salt Lake city from any place of Kolkata. If you are driving then take Eastern Metropolitan Bye Pass, and turn towards Salt Lake. As the name suggests it is centre of Salt Lake city.
Price: less than US$10
Rating: 4
Theme: Eclectic/International

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
