Climb up to Terraza Jardine for a wonderful dinner under the night skyAugust 2, 2013
Rating: 3 out of 5
I have been to Terraza Jardine a number of times and whenever I am there, I’ve been really very happy and satisfied. It is a food joint located on the roof top terrace of the Rainey Court Residency building on Ballygunj Circular Road. I always look for roof top seating arrangement in restaurants, especially for dinners as it feels great to have dinner with warm company sitting under the night stars. Terraza Jardine is one of my favorite destinations in Kolkata, not only for its ambience but also for the quality of food that it serves at reasonable rates.
The service here is quite slow but I enjoy this slow pace because of the ambience. If you don’t turn up here leaving loads of work behind, then this slow pace is as an additional advantage if you are looking to enjoy the calmness and pleasantness of the place under the open night sky. It is an ideal romantic after-hours dinner destination. Though located in the heart of the city, you will enjoy total calmness here, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
The restaurant opens at 11AM but I have never been there in daylight. I have tried a number of dishes there and each one of them was really excellent. North Indian is good here. Machhli Begum Bahar is a unique item here which you will rarely find elsewhere. Dry fruits and khoya are used to prepare the stuffing which is then stuffed inside a Bhetki fillet. With each bite, the heavy stuffing of nuts and khoya oozes out to fill your mouth with its creamy and delicious taste. Another item that’s pretty good here is their flavored lemon marinated chicken which they’ve named Gandharaj Kathi Murgi. The boneless chicken pieces is marinated in flavored lemon juice (gandharaj lemon) and then grilled. These two items are a must try recipe of this terrace restro.
If you are fond of continental dishes, then try their salads. Not a huge range of options but they’re good. To end your meal with something sweet, you can always go in for one of their desserts – their Baked Malai Chumchum and Hot Gulab Jamun with ice-cream are mention worthy. There is nothing special about their hot Gulab Jamun with ice-cream so avoid that.
