Why locals love it

A 110-year-old dormitory in Tiretti Bazar that was built for the Chinese working population in the city but hardly had any visitor for over three decades has been turned into a restaurant in a bid to save the property from decay.

Why you should visit it

The effort at transforming the central Calcutta property stands in contrast to the indifference that many old buildings in Calcutta, some with heritage value, have fallen victim to.

Sei Vui Restaurant, opened in December, is housed in a section of the Black Burn Lane building where there was once a dormitory, run by Voiling Club.

Special tip

Tiretti Bazar or Old Chinatown is where the first Chinese settlers of Calcutta had started to live.
