Great service, and wonderful Indian food! I would definitely go out of my way to eat here again! Not far out of the city.

By accident, we ate lunch at Oh Calcutta yesterday, and absolutely loved it. The food was fresh and deliciously prepared. The butter chicken was amazing, and the chicken tikki masala was incredible. I particularly liked the naan bread because it was light and tasty, not as heavy as most naan breads. It was a little pricey for lunch, but worth... More

7 years ago we found this restaurant and came away raving about its Butter Chicken. It is truly THE best we've ever had, and we have eaten in Indian restaurants all over the world. In fact, it was so good, that when we returned to Auckland this year, Oh Calcutta was number one on our list of restaurants to return... More

I have been to Oh Calcutta many times over the years & it has been an Indian restaurant which seldom disappoints me. Its friendly waiters can always make good recommendations in case one needs them. My friends & I were led to our booked table and complimentary poppadoms were served in no time. We ordered our drinks, mix platter of... More

This restaurant is just too good to be true. Authentic Indian food with great flavours. We have been to a number of Indian resturants here in the UK and are yet to come across places as good as Oh Calcutta. Try their daal and paneer gravy. It is out of this world. If you happen to be in Auckland and... More

A couple of nights ago we went to Oh Calcutta for dinner, and it was absolutely sensational. We have never had such delicious, fresh Indian food before. Everything we ate was wonderful, we couldn't pick a favourite, but the brown lentil Dahl was certainly a notch above most others you will taste. Definitely worth a visit.

We have dined here several times now during our visits to Auckland and cant fault the food. Its a favourite of our friends. They are always personally acknowledged by the staff who remember the special requests our friends usually make. The food is excellent as is the service and ambience. Its a busy restaurant so it does pay to book.... More
