Hyatt Regency Kolkata being a pet-friendly hotel allows you to bring in your pets as well. What’s more is that the Poolbar has a pet pop-up at the venue for your furry friends by Pawsome Kolkata, a pet studio on Syed Amir Ali Avenue, where your pets can play, get groomed and you could also buy accessories and toys for them.
You could choose from a cosy table with bae to the beautifully lit up gazebo, if you turn up in a big group. The menu is sectioned into chaats, pizzas, sandwiches, pasta, grills, burgers, Mexican nachos and quesadillas along with a selection of desserts.
The Telegraph picks
Papad Tokri Chaat: A part of the chaat counter, this tangy hot and sweet potato and sprouts chaat comes nestled within a roasted papad bowl that adds to the flavour.
Non-vegetarian BBQ and sizzlers: Patrons have a plethora of options ranging from Peri-peri Chicken to New Zealand Lamb Chops, Buffalo Tenderloin, Salmon Steak and Tiger Prawns among others.
Vegetarian BBQ and Sizzlers: There are options galore for vegetarians as well. You can relish grilled items such as Asparagus, Chipotle Pineapple, Corn on the Cob, Stuffed Zucchini and Stuffed Mushrooms.
Pasta: The pasta section is more of a make-your-own-dish feature that allows you to choose the pasta, sauce as well as accompaniments of your choice. The Telegraph tried this decadent Mushroom Ravioli.
Desserts: The dessert bar was a mix of different chocolate as well as non-chocolate items such as Orange Chiffon Slice, Hot Choco Lava, Forest Fruit Cheese Cake and a range of ice creams to choose from.
