Very modern, industrial, yet brightly coloured surroundings made the place a cut above your normal Indian restaurant- there was even a media projector shooting a Bollywood channel on to the wall, with great accompanying music! The main dishes were about £10 on average, which mostly included rice, and were well presented and tasty. A small selection of Asian lagers were... More

Dropped into Oh Calcutta on harbour festival weekend 2015, as everywhere else in the city centre was rammed. Once seated our waiter came over and was very helpful and friendly. We ordered our usual curries and each of them came with rice free of charge. The food took a while to arrive but we were very pleased with it. Everything... More

A small and buzzy curry house just down from the Arches, it’s looks a bit basic at first glance but is actually quite nicely done out in a rather stripped back sort of way. The heavy slate tables were an unusual feature as were the illuminated seats! Staff here seemed genuinely friendly which makes a pleasant change – I can’t... More

Booked a table for 15 ,seated promptly on arrival.Friday night at 7 o'clock so already almost full.Food is reasonably priced, good portion size and freshly made. Service is prompt with a smile. Drinks are only of a soft variety, but you can take your own. Families are welcome and nothing seems too much of a trouble. The cleaning up was... More

Eight of us visited last night. we sat at our table at 20:30 and were served at 22:15. what is there more to say really?-very slow service. it was also too noisy in there, not the best environment for a couple. The food was good - if it wasn't, it would have been a failure of a night out but... More

I celebrated my birthday here and there was 34 of us in total, the staff were welcoming from the start and even put balloons on the table. They were so lovely to us all evening even though there was so many people I imagine we were frustrating customers. The food was top rate and excellent value for money. I would... More

Booked a table of 25 people and absolutely love curry and this restaurant is by far the best Indian restaurant I've been in. The food was incredibly tasty and the right level of spice. It was also served in good time despite the restaurant being full. The service from staff was however, was probably what made this extra special. We... More

I booked a table for 15 people a week in advance. Although a medium kitchen would be hard pressed to get every meal out on time we didn't expect it to be 40 mins from the first meal to the last meal to reach our table. The food was nice though not the best in Bristol and we paid for... More
