This one is fishy business indeed. Feisty, atypical menu and great concept. Lured by the idea of a new concept" restaurant in the heart of the Calcutta, we land up on a weekday to test the waters. Concept restaurants worldover promise house specialties, indigenous style and often see chefs tweaking recipes here and there, and working steadily on them.nnDecornIt lacks decor. Frankly, a lot of the excitement ebbed on entering the ordinary down the road looks. Fish net on the show windows, laminated table tops, uncomfortable office seating and above all the fish odour. You really need to be in love with your Crustaceans to like this place at first sight. The show kitchen peeps into an industrial back area, which is not much of "show". When will we learn from our friendly neighbour country Thailand there is a way of life in meticulous presentation and fabulous freshness.nnFoodnThe menu lives up to the expectations. Though it bends backwards to prove a point, that fish is not only Bengal's pride, but can be treated as a global favourite. So, don't expect the regular Bengali delicacies, instead look beyond. I would actually, like the menu to be peppered with some more local flavors. Why the pretention? We start with Seafood Coriander soup (Rs.130), Crab Cutlet (Rs. 270) our next choice is not available, move on to Chittol Machher Sheekh Kebab (Rs. 300), Smoked Salmon Salad (Rs 200) and followed by mains Singapore Chilli Crab (Rs 320), Mixed sea food Nasi Goreng (Rs 175). If you ask my heart I would have been happier with the choice of Bengali combo meals Topse Bhaja, Chingri Machher Malaikari, Begun Bhaja, Ghee bhat (Rs 300), Ilish Machh Bhaat, Khichuri, Begun Bhaja (Rs. 350) Chocolate Firni (Rs 150), which they serve for lunch only.nnPlus and MinusnThe soup comes as a regular Chinese broth, the innovative Chittol Machher Sheekh Kebab brings in the pleasant surprise radiant with natural flavour and still soft and supple in the mouth but be warned about the fine bones. The Salmon Salad
