Krystal Group Launches Charcoal by Wise Owl in the City of Joy

Charcoal by Wise Owl is the newest offering by the Krystal group that has other restaurants like ‘Wise Owl The Coffee Shop’, ‘The Wise Owl Steakhouse’, ‘Krystal Chopsticks’ and ‘Tero Parbon’ under its wing.

Located in the southern hub of Kolkata on Purna Das Road, this restaurant specialises in Northwest Frontier cuisine.

“We are thrilled to introduce to the city of Kolkata a laid back, North West Frontier cuisine restaurant where they can enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner with friends and family. The idea to launch the North West Frontier cuisine originated when I travelled to Lucknow with my husband, who hails from there. I remember being mesmerised by the Awadhi food and knew from that moment that the city of Kolkata needed to taste the authentic Awadhi food along with the other Northwest Frontier cuisines like Kashmiri, Rajasthan, Punjab, Pakistani and Afghani which at some point constituted the northwest frontier states. ” shared Siddhika Ghose Chaudhuri, Founder, Charcoal by Wise Owl.

The name ‘Charcoal’ is derived from the traditional cooking style in clay ovens or tandoor in the Northwest Frontier province region. Also known as Peshawari cuisine, this cuisine traces its roots back to the lands stretching from Kabul, Kandahar, Peshawar to Lahore. One distinctive selling point of this cuisine is its rustic element and emphasis on preserving the flavours and ingredients. 

Created with the spirit of offering a casual, relaxed space to unwind with family and friends, Charcoal by Wise Owl has vibrant decor elements such as wooden panels, plants and dim lighting that lends an aesthetic appeal to the elegant diner.

Spread across an area of 900 sqft, this 46 seater restaurant is divided into 2 sections – an indoor and an alfresco space. The main area leads to a pleasant outdoor seating space with a wonderful view of the skyline. 

The extensive menu highlights exquisite dishes like Kebabs, Meat, Vegetables and other authentic Northwestern flavours such as Rajma Galouti, Tandoori Motiya, Sikandari Murgh, Peshawari Burrah, Mutton Galouti with Mini Parathas, Shaam O Saher, Awadhi Murgh Malai, Gosht Roghan Gulmarg, Laal Maas, Dum Biryani, amongst many others. 

The indulgent desserts on the menu include Baked Mihidana Tart, Malai Cheesecake and Kesar Malai Paris Brest.
