One of the newest entrants on the Kolkata food map, Square 405 occupies a niche space between a café and a restaurant. Open from 11 am to 11pm, the bright peppy colours dominating the décor perk up the space and give a young café like feel. But being a stand alone “café” in a mall with over 4,500 sq feet of space, the café has reinvented itself to accommodate multi- cuisine meals.
While its bright red and yellow chairs and massive sense of space is a plus, what is even more enjoyable is the sheer number of condiments provided on each table. Salt and pepper is a usual but mustard, tabasco and even the Worcestershire sauce without having to ask for it? Impressive.
CAFFEINE COUNTER What’s better than a tall glass of iced tea after a hot day of shopping?
MUNCH THIS Tried but tempting grilled chicken lemon with butter sauce is a delicious succulent. For desserts, don’t miss the toffee coated walnuts served with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.
PEOPLE WATCH frequented by youngsters, families and the mall rats.
