Authentically excellent

Sick of the boring 'European' version Indian dishes around? Oh Calcutta is a genuine change. Beautiful dishes, deceptively deep and full of meat/veges. Great flavours, spices and balance. Always happy after a meal here, quality unchanged in ten years.

The location is the the only saving grace of this restaurant - as some of their dishes are awesome the others simply don't match up - on the whole that is what makes this restaurant an average place to eat. My family and I have been to this place a couple of times mainly on account of it's location. Must... More

We came across Oh Calcutta by chance and lucky we did! We ordered the vegetarian sample plate for three which was very tasty (small though) then we ordered Channa Masala, a lamb dish and another vegetarian. All the dishes were perfect, not to spicy and so fresh. As well, we could see one of the cooks preparing the naan bread,... More

We heard so much about this place and yes, it was worth it. The food and service was excellent. Although its a bit expensive but considering the portion sizes, it was great!

In search of quality Indian? Stop looking, your search has ended. The curries are so fragrant and packed with whole spices, out of a table of 4 there were no dishes that didn't tickle the tastebuds. Oh Calcutta are the real deal!

We were a party of 7. We had booked a table online, but they they never called to confirm as per their website. However, when we arrived, they were busy and accommodated us right away. They arranged a table for all of us very quickly. Service was good and quick. The Chicken dish was excellent.

delicious dinner, awesome service, nice surroundings. Pricey for Indian food in Auckland but heads and shoulders above most Indian restaurants (apart from Cassia) so worth the money. We paid $279 for a party of 9, but no entrees, deserts or alcohol in that price. We were very full. I would definitely go back. Parking locally is tricky.

This place is brilliant! It's a warm and inviting environment and has the BEST butter chicken! We dine here weekly - it's that good!

Meena and her family really know what they're doing. The food is delicious and service warm and professional. A true favourite for us.

I took my parent here while they were visiting from Australia. My Dad can sometimes be hard to please with food and as he loves Indian cuisine I wanted to find the best - and I did! Food was amazing, service was amazing, parents loved it! We also really appreciated the waiters wearing their traditional clothing. It made it the... More
