We ate for two a "Calcutta Platte" with mango-lassi and coriander "Nan". It was so good and enough. Additonal we got a mint-coriander-chili sauce, which was delicious.

We really enjoyed our evening at the Calcutta restaurant – It’s a well-established genuine old school Indian restaurant – It opened in 1964 and may have been the first in Berlin. We found it a very welcoming place and the service was very good informal and friendly. They will tailor a dish to your needs and appreciate people from various... More

Calcutta was recommended by the hotel I was staying in - and boy were they right! The food was delicious and affordable for that area of town - prepared and served with a warmer beneath and the waitstaff was attentive and fun. I would highly recommend and wish I was back in Berlin and could visit again!

Thank goodness for that as my wife and I had an excellent dinner, The service, atmosphere and food is top class. We had... More

We discovered it while walking to Savignyplatz. The interior with the paintings and the doors is a bit kitschy , as the new modern Indian restaurants go on light and simple colour decoration but the service was great and the food was really tasty. I got my food extra spicy and my friend mild as requested and we had fab... More

Pilau rice and naan bread too (although the naan was a little disappointing - bordering on a popadom rather than a bread... More

We visited with friends and their three teenage boys. Service was friendly, welcoming and very efficient. The starters were just average but the main courses and side dishes were excellent. The owner was attentive and came to chat when he discovered we were English...telling us something of the history of the restaurant and it's famous visitors. All in all a... More

Best service, authentic taste, wide menu, great location, reasonably priced.... That tells it all! We ordered veg pakoras, chicken tikka, tandoori rotis and alu channa. All of these were good on taste.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
