Opened in 2005, Kolapata – ‘banana leaf’ in Bengali – has been a leading destination to experience Bangladeshi cooking in London. The restaurant is modest, cheap and very popular with local Bangladeshis. When the food is freshly cooked and the full complement of chefs from Dhaka is in the kitchen, the flavours and freshness sing; expect a large range of grilled dishes and curries, and look for the list of house specials including starters, fish dishes and biryanis.

This place serves the best Fuchka in London. The other popular Bangla cuisine such as Kachchi Biryani and Eelish fry are also very tasty. It has become the second home for me. I go there atleast twice a week.

Food is great and pure authentic Bangladedhi cuisine. And staffs are friendly.
