Boishakhi Resturant Dhaka Reviews
The Best Authentic Bangla Food Oct 10, 2011
Boishakhi is "The Best" authentic Bangla restaurant. It serves only Bangla food and caters to the rich and famous. A big part of its business is catering to "take away" orders. I have seen many Media personnel, actors and actresses dining in this fine restaurant.
No matter what anybody says to you, if you are looking to taste authentic local cuisine in Bangladesh, this place is a must. Many people mix up Bangla food and Indian food. Visit Boishaki to know the difference. All the food is spicy, but the staff are used to foreign guests so if you want they will arrange less spicy food for you. The staff are very friendly and will try their best to accommodate any request.
Price for food is a bit high compared to average food cost in Bangladesh but really cheap considering its standard if you compare to the world. Typical lunch/dinner for 2 comprising 6-7 course will cost you around $15-$20 but if you limit your choice, you can easily dine here fore $10.
One more thing, when you talk Bangla food, it must be fish and rice. Check out the "Shorisha Eelish" (Musturd Hilsha), "Rui Vuuna" (Curry of Carp) and various other from their fish menu. Start off with a few "Vorta"s (Mashed and mixed with onions, chili, mustard oil, other spice / herbs) like potato, egg, fish, beans, tomato etc.
