Very tasty authentic Indian food

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... read more

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

Incredibly delicious gourmet Indian food with the kitchen visible from the dining area. The food was wonderful, the wait staff pleasant and the outdoor dining comfortable. We arrived at 6PM and the only table available was outside, people kept lining up for tables all evening and the take out scooter delivery was in constant motion. A must when visiting Auckland.

We saw the high rating and positive reviews and were not disappointed. Service was excellent and the dishes tasty. The garlic naan was lovely too. If you like really hot food you need to specify Indian hot :)

I've eaten at Oh Calcutta many times while traveling to Auckland for business. It is hands down the best Indian food I've ever had. Even took the kids there once and they loved it too!

This is a good Indian restaurant that is worth visiting. I was satisfied with all of the food and beverages that I ordered although the service wasn't that great. The price is fairly reasonable, they also have special deals for groups of 4 or more.

We dined here on the Thursday evening before Good Friday and I'm glad we booked as the place was busy, which may be a contributing factor to the slow service, which I will cover later. We perused the menu, which was different from other Indians as there were no rice dishes listed nor side dishes. Rice is included as standard... More

This is one of the best Indian restaurants I have ever eaten at. The levels of taste and flavour in the dishes is excellent and side dishes that complement the main courses very well. I had the special that was a goat curry and was brilliant. The restaurant was open to the street and a great atmosphere with attentive and... More
