Told that this was the most authentic Indian cuisine in New Zealand by an Indian chef friend. Very nice!

We were looking for somewhere not too fancy but with good food and we found it here. The food was delicious and the service attentive without overwhelming. Judging from the number of people in the restaurant and the takeout crowd, this place is well known. Good solid Indian cuisine with no surprises. Highly recommended.

Everything about this restaurant was superb. From the very efficient attentive service to the very tasty food. The mixed entree was amazing but almost a bit too much for us as I was almost full! And the best chicken tikka we've tasted! Mains were all tasty and the prawn malabari was generous on the prawns which were also a good... More

Stumbled on Oh Calcutta while wandering through Parnell on a rainy day...what a treat! We had a wonderful lunch and truly enjoyed the authenticity of the food. We split a "big" lunch which included smaller portions of 3 dishes of our choice plus jasmine rice, rocket salad and naan and it was perfect and all for $19...a steal in Auckland.... More

Brillaint. Good fine dining experience. The food and the service at this restaurant is fantastic. A combination that is rarely associated with Indian Restaurants. Malai Kofta & Kadhai Chiken are by far the best dish here

My problem with Indian restaurants in Auckland is that they deliberately tame their food for Western tastes. And with a lot of experience of eating in India, it is noticeable. If you are used to India as in India, then most Auckland Indian restaurants come across as bland. Oh Calcutta (its not Bengali) is at the better end of them... More
