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.

Lovely food, good service, a bit damp and cool as we sat in the outdoor covered area but their heaters were wonderful. Would go back.

Only table available is Sit down at 8.30pm. They expected us to arrive at 7 only to wait for an available table at 8:30pm? Thanks but that's horrible.

We love going to Oh Calcutta in Parnell. Can't go past the samosas, butter chicken and saag paneer. Fantastic plain and garlic naan also. The staff are friendly and patient with the kids. It's great for the kids to be able to watch into the kitchen as they cook in the tandoor. The wine list also offers good labels by... More

Make sure you book for this very popular restaurant. It's good value for money with a BYO facility and there's an off licence over the road (they just charge $5 per person corkage).

This has to be the main Indian Restaurant I tend to go to over here. It has an extensive range of authentic food and a wide range of beers and wines. An unexpectedly cultural experience of a restaurant. Just next door to Burger Fuel on the high street in Parnell, you wouldn't expect these surroundings in this restaurant. I will... More
