Benfish is one of the longest running and oldest food joints in Salt Lake. The place is very popular and almost everyone working or living there knows about it and frequents it for its yummy food. The place is a small food outlet located at the Karunamoyee crossing. Hence it is very easy to locate it as it is situated in one of the busiest areas in Salt Lake. Despite being a small outlet, the menu offers a wide range of food items. The terms ambience and décor DO NOT apply to this outlet.

The food quality though is not the same anymore. The food quality seems to have experienced a decline. Yet the place does dish out some lip smacking food options. Their very popular items which you will find nowhere else in Kolkata this cheap and tasty are their chilli liver and chilli mushroom. The dishes come with generous amount of chicken liver and mushroom balanced with the right amount of chillies. The servings are ample for both of these dishes.

Their fried rice items are considered by many to be the best among all their items. Some of their specials are ham fried rice; pork fried rice and mixed fried rice. Noodles like chicken with prawn Hakka chow and pork with prawn Hakka chow can be delightful preparations. Yet the noodles can be way too salty sometimes and the quality of chicken items can be questionable at times as well. Nonetheless, certain meat items worth sampling includes their garlic chicken Manchurian prawn, fish with mushroom, sweet and sour ham, chilli ham and Sichuan pork.

At times, the food can give you the feeling of having the same taste. For people who are not accustomed to oily food their food might appear to be way too oily, but sadly that is how they make their dishes (regarded as tasty by many in the area).
