This new venture of Mainland China, mastered by Mr. Anjan Chatterjee, CEO, Mainland China and Mr. Phiroz Sadri, Executive Director, Mainland China, is surely a new milestone and a new feather in their already highly decorated cap. They already have Oh Calcutta a Bengali speciality restaurant in Kolkata, now this new venture," SIGREE Flame & Grill' is a totally new concept to Kolkata. Opened on 25th February at South City Mall, Prince Anwar Shah Road, just next to the all new Mainland China. It's 100% Indian buffet, lunch and dinner restaurant, with changing menu and major stress is given to the specially prepared Bar Be Que. The tables are built with a space in the middle to accomodate a portable Bar Be Que Grill ( see picture), with flaming charcoal( just perfect!). The buffet(? a pleasant surprise for us!!) starts this way, as soon as you settle down, they place the Grill and several Skewers with at least six varieties of Kebabs & grills both veg and non-veg, which is 80% ready. We had Chicken, Mutton, Fish, Paneer( Cottage Cheese), Haryali Kebab, Grilled Potato & tomato, Sheekh Kebab as starter! If you ask for more they will give more!
Then you can go for the main course, they have a generous buffet spread, with Biryanis( both veg & non veg), Mutton, Chicken Curries, Fish, several vegetarian curries, Dal, Several salads and a large and generous spread of desserts such as Chocolate Brownies, Kheer, Ice Cream with Chocolate sauce, freshly cut fruits etc. Above all, this princely treat comes with minus the Five Star price tag! Mr. Chatterjee has surely kept his promise. No wonder this place is always full and food is heavenly! The Calcutta gentry is developing a liking for this place as they have developed for the Mainland China.
For accompaniment they have a large stock of wines and spirits both domestic and imported. You will never be disappointed. Decor is excellent best suited for the occasion.( see pictures in next tip)
The Crew!! One of the best lot we have ever experienced just like Mainland China, extremely courteous, helpful and always smiling. A sure touch of Mr.Chatterjee & Mr. Sadri!


Favorite Dish: We experienced all the Kebabs of the day, Mutton Biryani,Dal Banjara, Kadai Paneer, Kadai Chicken, Bhuna Gosht ( Fried Mutton), Malai Palak ( spinach) etc. I don't remember all the names. We had Bacardi and Rakhi had a Kingfisher beer. Munu had her usual cola!

For dessert we had , Chocolate Brownies, Fruits, Ice Cream with Hot Chocolate sauce & Kheer! That was more than sufficient and very satifying. A whole new experience and a great experience altogether. Now we will have to make it a habit to visit the place.

This Royal treat comes only for Rs.295/- per head ( believe me!or USD $ 7). For drinks you have to pay extra the regular charges.
