Vinod Prasad – the current owner’s grandfather established this tea & snacks outlet more than 50 years ago.

They are originally from Muzaffarpur, Bihar.

Timings: 7:00 am – 12 Noon / 4:00 pm – 9:00 pm (Holi, festival of colors – closed).

We had Hing (asafoetida) Kachori, Jalebi, and Kesar Chai (served in a clay pot).

The piping hot Hing kachori along with Aloo Tarkari were lip-smacking.

Impeccable taste, scrumptious with excellent quality.

The tea within the clay pot was refreshing and too good.

Polite staff. The service – fast. The cost – super cheap. Great to be here.

In short, Maharaj is a treat for kachori lovers. Good place for a quick bite at a reasonable price. One of the best street food centers of South Kolkata. Maybe one of the best Kachori with Aloo Tarkari and Tea sellers in the city. A perfect iconic crowded place to have delicious snacks with varieties of tea. Highly recommended at least once.

It accepts Paytm and even delivers via Swiggy.

If you are in Kolkata and have not visited Maharaj – you have missed something. A must-visit outlet for all foodies.

Maharaj – a nice place to have snacks & tea with family and friends.

I personally would love to visit Maharaj again & again. The journey continues…
