“Best Bengali food in Kolkata”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The food was extremely good, the portions were great, and the service excellent. This is a wonderful restaurant - the only regret I have is that it is located in a Mal !!. The such good restaurant should have been better located, like Mainland China in Kolkata (owned by the same Management). Definitely worth a visit for authentic, excellent Bengali food.

“Pricey, great service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We visited Oh! Calcutta twice, once on a formal occasion and once with friends, both times at EM Bypass location. It is lavishy decorated, great ambience, excellent service, and I like the dinnerware with a nice black and white imprint of tourist places in Kolkata. That was an unexpected elegant touch. Everyone found the food lipsmackingly good. However, for me it was quite the opposite experience. It is cooked in some oil with a unique aroma which made me quite sick and nauseated till the next day, both times. There is no hygiene problem, just my stomach cannot stand the onslaught of the heavy food. I also find it unreasonably pricey. Its hard to judge for the meat/fish on the menu since they probably source the best cuts of meat and the freshest fish, but the vegetarian menu has no such excuses. The Nolen gur ice cream is to die for, but quite a measly serving for a hefty price. Overall I would not choose to go here again for food, I have had better Bengali food for one third the price and two thirds the ambience elsewhere in Kolkata. My personal experience was not so great.

“Pricey but Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Had lunch at the Elgyn road branch (Forum Mall). The environment was very nice inside, with ambient lighting and nice wall mats and photos. The menu was vast. Had biriyani, rice, Daab chingir and boneless hilsha. The taste was very good.
If you like specialty food and then its a must visit restaurant. But beware that, the cost is higher than almost all Bengali restaurants in Kolkata. It costed about Rs2000 per head for us for basic lunch (without any drinks, appetizer or desert)
