Way back in 2003, the city did not boast of a single standalone eatery specializing in Bengali cuisine which is much more varied than many other Indian cuisines.
After a thorough research into cook books spanning different eras, including Thakurbarir khabar or books by Pragya Devi Sundari, Savourites came up with its hallmark restaurant, 6 Ballygunge Place, at a bungalow of a former Rai Bahadur, on Ballygunge. The old world charm in architecture and minimalist décor of the 100 year old property was retained, and coupled with exquisite food, this 84 seater restaurant soon became preferred destination for connoisseurs in the city.
Among other recognitions, it received the prestigious Telegraph Foodguide Award in 2012 and The Times of India High on Hilsa Award in 2012. The 6 Ballygunge Place name has become a brand in itself, and our advertisement campaigns have won prestigious awards nationally. It has been the venue for many shoots starring Tollywood celebrities and cookery shows across all major electronic media, featuring our very own service enhancer and founder director Chef Sushanta Sengupta.
Among the glitterati who have patronized us are luminaries like Rishi Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle, Sourav Ganguly, Nasiruddin Shah, Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu, Twinkle Khanna, Shaan and many others.
