We returned again to this restaurant. Great meal, excellent service, great value. I believe the best Indian in Auckland!

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

We ordered a huge variety for a table of six and everything was superb. The Naan were really good too. This is a great place to go if you are getting to know some in your group as the food will soon have everyone sharing and drooling! The food was delivered in a timely fashion with friendly unobtrusive service. We... More

It was freezing cold and wet the night we went to Oh Calcutta. We hadn't booked (we're not locals so we didn't know we should), and were surprised to find the whole place full at 6.15pm in the middle of the week. They took pity on us and created a table, squeezed in by the front door. We didn't care,... More

A smoothly run family owned and run restaurant. Always look forward to business trips to Auckland. Food always good and the naan bread is the best I have eaten anywhere. If you are going from down town, catch the inner link bus - there is a stop just a short block from the door. Oh, and you can bring your... More

Service was excellent we were quickly seated and offered drinks. We both had the mixed starter which was excellent , I then had lamb rogan josh... More

Don't miss this one. This is definitely a go-to restaurant in Auckland. Have not had Indian Food this good since New Delhi. An elegant neighbourhood restaurant... Will be anticipating a return to this one next visit to NZ.
