Reviewed By Thivagaran T - Chittagong City, Bangladesh

it's best place for all persons mean this place for both (Rich & Poor ) people can get the tikka experience with cheap price @ royal hut, you can get road side sitting & eating experince with your family or friends, it's good for winter time eat tikka with other menus,this place like a park always crowdy, you must wait & get the seat, im not like one thing because i saw most of the child workers there, their working for less money, any way their situations also good for eating, but little bit hygienic, pay less money & get a more foods......

Meridian Hotel & Restaurant

Reviewed By rooma d - Dhaka Division, Bangladesh

Very good restaurant centrally located, easy access and very good quality food. Buffet available. Best is to try this instead of ordering from the menu. Service is good. Staff friendly and helpful. Try the thai soup. Must be the best in town. The atmosphere is good and peaceful. Worth the money spent.

Handi Restaurant

Reviewed By Harsingar - Bangalore

An "indian" joint on the first floor at some very busy Junction in the heart of Chittagong. Quite grubby, dimly lit, numbers of waiters swarming inefficiently...Overlooks the traffic junction.
We went in a large group, after a long day's work (our 1st and only day in this surely lovely city) - and chose this only because we were hungry and had no patience to search more
Food - was surprisingly good enough. Light, generous, scented Clear Soup followed by good Dal and Palak Subzi, Naan etc. Tasty, greasy stuff - just as most customers of "Indian" food want it
If you are fussy about hygiene or even being vegetarian - do not go here. It is quite dirty. The wait staff is sweet, but mis managed and totally untrained. They generally hang around, gossiping in clumps - and one has to work hard to get attention.

Tava Restaurant

Reviewed By Khadem B

Originally it was located at the open square with green environment & subsequently moved to the current place. In comparison, previous total situation was very good surrounds with green plants, which served nice (spicy / tasty) selection & favourite restaurant to many individuals. Now they focus on big party such as wedding, birth day as well as business party. Also menu has been changed with many additions including Chinese. So it's now good for family not individuals. From price stand point , not too expensive but expensive than similar restaurant, who serves same quality. Food quality not bad but need to focus on the hygienic issue. Better recruit the professional staffs who familiar with their menu & preparation.
Normally I visit for business purpose & I observed that they organised the place for group of guest.

Reviewed By Tahsin1990 - Dhaka City, Bangladesh

We have been to a lot of restaurants in Chittagong city and Bonanza was the first try this time!
The hospitality was more than something you can expect in Dhaka city.
Food: we ordered Chinese cuisine mainly and took a korean chicken item ( red chicken) which won't be found on the Dhaka menus. overall, all their items were relishing!
