Golpo – Bengal Cafe & Restaurant

Golpo is a dream born out of a shared love for modern Bengal cuisine between two friends on a short trip to Bangladesh. As they savoured a cup of chai, they exchanged stories of their fondness for the unique flavours of Bengal cuisine. They realised that they both had the same dream of bringing the authentic taste of their beloved food to the people of Cambridge.

Thus, the journey of Golpo began – a venture that aims to bring the true essence of Bengal cuisine to food enthusiasts in Cambridge. Our mission is to create an unforgettable culinary experience by staying true to the traditional methods and flavours of Bengal’s rich gastronomic heritage.

We believe that food is not just about nourishing the body, but also about nourishing the soul. With Golpo, we aim to create a culinary narrative that takes you on a journey to the heart of Bengal. Our menu is crafted with care, using only the freshest and highest quality ingredients to bring out the true essence of each dish.

Stay tuned for the opening of Golpo, where we promise to take you on a culinary adventure like no other. Get ready to experience the rich flavours, textures, and aromas of Bengal cuisine, right here in the heart of Cambridge.

~ Had an amazing dining experience with the most exquisite flavours at Golpo situated in the heart of Cambridge.

As you enter the place, a magnificent setting, serene ambience and the luxuries of modernity welcome you. The food was excellent, great presentation and unusually the menu was concise with mouth watering starters and enough choices of main courses to satisfy most tastes…!!

Exceptional service and amazing food. We are eastern Europeans and the names of the food on the menu were not familiar too well so it was an experiment for us. Everything we had here today had outstanding, unusual flavours, well presented and was greatly enjoyable. 10 out of 10.

Thank you 🙂

Fantastic place for a drink with friends or a meal

This is a great new restaurant and a welcome addition to the area. I cant recommend them highly enough – the welcome is very warm and friendly. We have stopped in twice – once for drinks and tonight we went for snacks and pudding. The non-alcoholic selection of drinks is fantastic had great cocktails and Belgian beer.

Snacks were super tasty and we were tempted in by the puddings which are also slightly unusual but delicious.
