Have taken out several dishes from Calcutta Wrap and Roll. Everything was delicious. Best Indian food we've had in Westchester since Bengal Tiger burned down.

    I posted a while ago about this place http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/763566

    The only downside is their location. No one knows it's back there because you can't see it from the street.

      Just read your previous post and could not agree with you more. Calcutta Wrap and Roll is indeed good by NYC standards and excellent by Westchester standards. The food seems authentic and is not spiced down to meet local tastes. They might do well to advertise more so people seek out their somewhat obscure location. Those that do are in for a delicious Indian food experience that is hard to come by north of the city line.

      I agree. It's my favorite Indian food in the county, and we live close enough that they deliver. I especially love their rolls.

        Have not tried the rolls. Which ones do you like?

          I really like the Calcutta Skinny Chicken Roll. It's a whole wheat wrap with chopped chicken and spices, and you can have it with or without egg (I like it with the egg, which comes fried at the bottom) and cooked to your desired level of spiciness. I'd never had anything like it before.

        One word describes this place: WOW! Wife and I had two thalis and a roll today and everything was impressively excellent and inexpensive. Chicken Tikka Masala was about the best I have ever eaten. Huge sized order of nan accompanies the thali. Nice mango lassi for $2.50. Looks like I will be making far fewer trips to Jaipore (in Brewster) or Rani Mahal because this place rocks! Quiet off street location and quite a few tables for eating in.

          Glad to hear you enjoyed it. This place gives one hope for decent ethnic grub in the suburbs.

            There are plenty of decent ethnic grub in the suburbs just depends on what you are looking for. Good Latino food can be found in Port Chester, New Rochelle, White Plains and Mt Kisco. Ossining has Portuguese. Japanese like Sushi Nanase, Fujinoya, and Nish dot the county.

              Addyman Square in Ardsley. Same plaza as Thai House and Fiesta Mexico.

              I'll vote for them too. The advantage of a takeout place is that you can just pay for a well prepared dish with great ingredients when you don't need fine china or tablecloths or atmosphere.

                Wow. It sounds like everything I have ever wanted in a Westchester Indian place. No fancy table cloths. I used to work in Dobbs Ferry and I wish I had known about it then. Is it new?

                  I think so, like maybe a year ago (?) I've been to plenty of Indian takeout places in the city ranging from lame to just ok, and always wondered why westchester couldn't open one. Well they have, and it's pretty good.

                I just recently visited Calcutta Wrap and Roll and the food is delicious and fresh. The counter staff is helpful and friendly. Had the privilege of meeting the owner, who is a real gentleman and a true foodie. Have been back several times already.
