I'm not one who usually likes Indian food. Oh Calcutta proved me wrong. I had a scrumptious lamb dish over rice. My friend had butter chicken. Wonderful flavors but not spicy hot as I feared. Atmosphere friendly.

This is our first meal since we landed in Auckland. I was surprised when my daughter selected this place since she is a picky eater. The food was really good. We ordered chicken tikka masala, punjabi saag ghosht (premium lamb, puréed wilted spinach, fenugreek, onion, crushed tomato, garlic, roasted cumin seeds & coriander) and rice. As I am writing this...

Service 10/10. Food 10/10. Wine menu 10/10. We had the lamb Mansoori kebabs starter followed by butter chicken and lamb madras. Beautifully cooked tandoori lamb cutlets. Lamb madras is quite possibly the best I've ever had. Very attentive staff. Very friendly. Sumptuous food. BOOK to avoid disappointment.

First time I have visited as I don't generally stay in Parnell. It is by all accounts very popular and was packed. We waited 30 mins for a table so I would recommend booking. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was reasonably priced and excellent, the best curry I have had for quite a while. Very tasty... More

The best curry I have had in NZ! Being from England we have many Indian restaurants and this is on par with the best I've had in England! The spices used were really good quality and it really balanced out the curry. Lovely gesture of free rice is always a winner in my eyes too! Top quality, we will be... More

Great restaurant for Indian food with a good ambience. Loved the decor and the bar. Heaps of inside and outside seating. Ample heaters and rain blinds to make you super comfortable. Staff and service was excellent especially because the lady brought me warm water without asking because she noticed I had a sore throat. We ordered Punjabi saag ghosth and... More

Lovely looking restaurant, lovely efficient and friendly staff. But, we were so disappointed in our food because it was not what we expected and love about Indian food - spicy and hot! When I ordered Beef Madras the waiter told us that this dish would be 'very HOT' to which we said "great, just what we like". No, it was... More

Whenever we are in Auckland for our trips from Australia we end up dining at Oh Calcutta. And why wouldn't we?! Perfectly cooked quality Indian cuisine. Service is impeccable. A classy restaurant that never disappoints. Highly recommended if you want quality Indian food and great service.
