Mr. Subrata Das, director, the Rose said on the occasion “We have been in this business for the past sixteen or seventeen years. We specialized in Indian and Chinese dishes. It was my father’s idea to develop a restaurant which will have the true Bengali flavors. I travelled to Bangladesh and have added many traditional dishes consumed there to our menu. This has enriched our menu considerably. There are about seventy items in the menu”.

The restaurant has a buffet platter which costs about two hundred rupees and consists of rice, mutton/chicken, pulses and vegetables. Additional charges will be applicable for those who will be opting for Hilsa and other fish items.
