The review was anonymously done after paying for the meal.

Before going to Kolkata this time, I was clear that I wanted the mother of all Indian Chinese food at Tangra. So I asked on Gurgaon Foodie group and with friends in Kolkata and the one name that kept getting recommended it was Golden Joy. So I decided to go here with my entire Kolkata team, who were delighted by my choice because apparently it has climbed up to numero uno on the Tangra restaurant chart. A fact that was demonstrated amply by the fact that the restaurant was packed at Thursday lunch time.


Things start shaky. Seafood Soup (Rs 120) that I decide to start with and various other soups that my team order all turn out to be glorified dish water. Thread Chicken (Rs 350) that my server enthusiastically recommends calling it all-time best seller also turns out to be a bit of a dud, with fried vermicelli clinging on to tasteless morsels of chicken. But soon things perk up.


Bhetki Fish Fry (Rs 550) has flaky fish encased in a halfhearted batter but it is the quality of the fish that carries the dish through. Shrimp Cake (Rs 450) is more of a jhinga cutlass (as one would call it in Mumbai) and is piping hot and delicious.


The star of the meal is steamed Fish Fillet with chilly, pepper, garlic (Rs 800) which is fish at its best. It is a dish that will bring me to this restaurant many times in future too I am sure. Veg Pan Fried noodles (Rs 180) is delicious and comforting too, and Veg Chowmein (Rs 140) simply hits the spot.


All in all amazing food. Much recommended. But skip the soup…and anything called thread!
