Aminia Restaurant in Uttara, Dhaka

The first outlet was started in 1929 in Kolkata, selling the famous Awadhi cuisine of Lucknow. The family grew and the second generation of the family choose to expand the family business looking at the growing demand for Awadhi/Mughlai food in the city.

The largest and most well-known outlet is located in the Futnani Chamber near the Kolkata Municipal Corporation in Sir Stuart Hogg Market or New Market. On the 15th of August 1946, the Aminia Restaurant opened its doors to the food loving public of Kolkata.

Aminia’s food at New Market has changed considerably over the years to cater to the Bengali palate. Bengalis are very sweet loving people and have a tendency to add some sugar to their food. 

Abdul Qayum brought down the spiciness and oiliness in the food and made them sweeter by adding more onions in their mutton rezala and mutton/chicken chaap. The gravy consistency was made lighter to make it appear like ‘jhol’ as especially done with our famous ‘Aminia Special’.

Aminia has come a long way since then. The restaurant is today being run by its third and fourth generations and has expanded to various parts of Kolkata. Although its oldest outlets still exist, over the years we have set up other outlets in Golpark, Garia, Tollygunge, Jessore Road, Rajarhat, Shyam Bazar, Behala and most recently Barrackpore. Even today, we still continue to scout potential locales where we can provide the old silver spoon service at competitive prices and a much larger and more innovative menu than its original. 

We at Aminia believe in a culture of Art, be it in the form of promoting renowned as well as emerging artists and providing a platform to showcase their work and realise their creative potential. All of our recent outlets have an array of art from renowned and emerging artists from different walks of life. 

We, at Aminia also believe in giving back to the community which has supported us and our establishment for generations. At our Rajarhat branch, we have displayed works from young talents from Anando, which is an NGO working on issues related to the protection and education of disadvantaged children.

Company Objective: To reach maximum people in most convenient way to make people taste our cuisine at affordable price.

In Business Since: 1950

This place sells food using the name of Aminia, India. But it is nowhere even remotely close to it. They couldn't held up yo the standards. Dishes are expensive and not value for money. Don't get fooled by the name.

Well decorated! I ate Biriyani and would like to mark the taste 6 out of 10. Restaurant should arrange an area for kids to entertain children accompanied with adults. There are a lot of opportunities for improvement specially in customer service section.

Biriyani mutton loaf size too small rather than chicken tandoori is quite a tasty dish
