Oh Calcutta! is my favourite indian restaurant in Bristol - the food is absolutely delicious and authentic, it tastes really special, without fail, all cooked from fresh, staff are always friendly and you can have a joke with them! - they are also passionate about their food and it really shows. Would highly HIGHLY recommend!

The restaurant was warm and friendly. Customer service was very efficient and pleasant. The food was wonderful and had aromas to make you feel as if you are genuinely in India. Kids loved it, made a mess but staff didn't mind. Try chicken tikka biryani, it is superbly mouth-watering.
