  • I bought a few books here but the selection was not super extensive and things are a bit dusty and dull. Come on guys - you could really make this a much better book store. The kids section is patheti...  more »

  • Well furnished. Well stocked. Buyers can search for the books available on several computers placed for the customers. There's a cafe inside the store so you can easily spend hours hear without feeling famished. The books prices are higher in comparison to online shopping though nothing can beat the high of offline shopping.
  • The Oxford book store is a great place to visit specially for a book lover and it has a child store in the first floor so if you want to read a book and have something or some other drinks at the same time then it's a great great place to visit. You can get books of all the genre here. And the Ambience and the environment is so silent and it is a place where you entered you immediately feel that you are into it so it's a great place.
  • Historic and iconic Calcutta/Kolkata literary icon for English medium literature and non fiction. Has changed over many decades. Thankfully fewer self help and US corporate management books than in previous years. Good selection of more modern Indian fiction esp for younger/teen readers. Slightly troublesome processes for bag checking and assessing that you haven't stolen books on the way out. Also, do you really need a toy shop at the front of the store?
  • The quiet, spacious wooden interiors tend to provide you with a lot of clarity of thought and the collection of books (on the ground floor) is huge. They are categorized and placed very thoughtfully, making it easy to navigate to your interest area. The first floor has a big space for book launches/readings, and The Cha Bar - which houses a great variety of teas from across the country. I have spent a lot of weekends here, flipping through various books and sipping on my favorite teas. This bookstore is a book lover delight and definitely a much better experience than the one in Delhi (if we are to compare).
  • Always my best place to buy books from in Kolkata. Love the vibe here. There layout is great. The collections nice and there's no rush. It's easy and relaxed. Also the cafe upstairs is simply the best.
