Very good food, properly spicy! So often in NZ we have the issue of getting Indian food cooked the way it should be but not here. The beef madras was really nice and spicy and the chicken tikka excellently done. The mixed starter is also to be recommended. Well worth a visit if you are partial to good Indian food.

Simply the best Indian food you will have in New zealand. Service is outstanding. Decor is brilliant. Choice of dishes is excellent. If you never had Indian or too afraid to try it, then I recommend this place as they will help you make the right choices!

This was probably the best Indian meal we had in our one month of travelling New Zealand and we really love Indian food. The tandoor meats were perfectly cooked and the daal and saag dishes were so tasty. The staff are superb and the atmosphere is great. You can BYO wine as well.

I love Sagwala curries (Spinach). This was one of the best i've had :). The place was busy but we were served quickly.

We dined at Oh Calcutta on Parnell Rd, Auckland on the recommendation of our hotelier, and we are glad we did. The food was excellent and the service prompt and friendly. Having a window into the kitchen at the back of the restaurant was a nice touch as it gave us a chance to see some of the dishes being... More

A last minute decision to try this restaurant proved fortuitous. Waiter's recommendation of goat was taken and proved to be well cooked, tender and lightly spiced. All the food, including starters was cooked and presented with style and was delicious. Front of house staff were discreet, helpful, knowledgeable and personable. A view of the kitchen through large glass windows added... More

The service was attentive which is difficult to maintain when the restaurant fills up so that was good. My girlfriend enjoyed her almond based curry but unfortunately it's me who has chosen to write a review. The score I've given is based on the food I ate. A mixed platter with a samosa which was ok, fairly unremarkable onion bhaji,... More
