Red Panda, Restaurant located at F5 Calcutta Greens Commercial Complex, 1050/2, EM Bypass, Survey Park, Santoshpur, Kolkata, West Bengal 700075 (Very close to Metropolis Mall, HiLand Park Area) has been lately the kind of place i was never ever aware of and it was a sad thing for me that i pass the Bypass stretch almost two to three times a week and i have never ever come across this place maybe because these are the real hidden gems in the city and one needs to get there when you tend to have that exploring thing in you.Fortunately i did not need to trouble myself discovering this place on my own as an invitation had popped by the management of Red Panda and Blogger Debajyoti of Foodie dada. I was extremely excited to know how this restaurant fairs in all the possible angles of lookout, so on the day of my very first visit i started early to battle the storm and rain that was about to shatter and wash the city clean, i guess the Weather God wanted me to have an adventurous day and not just sit and happily eat carefree (Giggles). So on that note saying so it took me around more than an hour to reach here with all the traffic moving swiftly right from Rajarhat area so its quite a distance for me yet i will be there and everywhere when needed to do so.
On reaching here the very first sight made me rethink whether i arrived to the right location or not. I was puzzled to see this place from outside and wondered where is the restaurant. Barely i took few a steps i met Manish who is one of the partners of Red Panda and he guided me up to take the stairs to the sitting area and by then all i knew was that i am not that bad also in locating places on my own. As i entered the floor up i was very satisfied enough on seeing a well decked up place with four decent tables and chairs placed in an organised manner. Nice yellow and brown dominated colour in look around walls,lights and floor is used to give this a comfort identity like a close fine dine. Loved the frames on the walls and also the Lamps as well as the soft music played at the background that compliments the complete look and vibe of this place. Moving from the feel of the place to the next important part which is the service and hospitality.Well to be honest i found the service to be decent enough,i was not expecting anything special but yes basic hospitality you get here. The alertness level of service is missing though at some point but what makes one happy is when one of the owner/partner who takes initiative to look after the table without any second thought. Yes the person i am talking about is Rabi who is also one of the partners who dropped in to welcome us a bit late but his focus of keeping the moment pleasant was a very nice feel indeed.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
