  • This is awesome place for browsing books, read, buy, eat and spenting time with friends and family. It's very nice place to visit. Many book launch event happend here, also it's famous for Cha Bar. It's besides The Park Hotel near Park Street Metro.
  • I work for Oxford Bookstores, belive me this is the oldest bookstore now become a heritage of Kolkata. We have met with thousands of Customers here who said if you are new in the city and didn't visited here, a lot is still missing then.
  • Great place to hangout for a quality chat with good friends, the cafe serves good wholesome food, but the bookstore's stock is rather subjugated to mainstream Indian and Fiction and popular magazines... you can occasionally bump into any unconventional volume but no fruit for betting on it. This is a happy place to hangout for me for the little cafe Cha Bar and its grilled chicken and mayo sandwich and earl gray and enjoy the view of the proper Park Street of Calcutta and/or "some book". Did You Know: I've heard that the building of the Bookstore was actually a home owned by a British couple during the British Raj until and Apeejay Surendra Group of Industries bought it, and made it Oxford Bookstore Kolkata. It definitely has that homely feeling to it.
