The Wall, located in one of the lanes of Southern Avenue close to Xrong Place and Tolly Tales, is the probably the first name which comes in mind when it comes to an fine dining oriental restaurant in South Kolkata. The Wall had always been my personal favourite for its authentic dishes and of course the stunning ambience. The Wall has always been innovative with its menu and had come up with various food festivals. Recently, I was invited here for the inauguration of Thai Food Festival. Well, speaking of the ambience and decor, a path laid with pebbles leads to the entrance from the main road. A beautiful black deity of Lord Buddha in meditation sits next to the main door. The interiors are classy and elegant. A golden statue of Lord Buddha in resting gesture raises the elegance of the place. The seating area is huge and has around 3-4 rooms to accommodate many customers at a time.
