Smart, clean venue at the top of an ultra-modern shopping mall – don’t let this put you off, the food at Oh Calcutta is excellent. Service is very good and serving staff are on hand to assist those new to Bengali cuisine, although the menu makes things pretty clear. Portions are generous with some sophisticated takes on local classics. Clientele appeared a healthy mix of both tourists and locals, with several parties of businessmen entertaining clients.

The ambience is very neutral. Service is warm and efficient. The food is fantastic and innovative too! Love visiting them during their Hilsa festival. They come up with some amazing desserts as well.

If you are one of those unfortunate folk without a fussy bengali aunty to force feed you rich bengali delicacies, fear not! Fight the traffic, insane buses and the oppressive humidity of Kolkata and make your way to OH! Calcutta. You shall be rewarded with a wonderful ambiance, attentive waiters and the best bengali food I've tasted outside my grandmother's kitchen.

Yes, take me seriously. If you do not plan on a trip to "Oh! Calcutta" on your trip to Calcutta, don't come to Calcutta. Period.

Delicious Fish preparation .I am not Fish lover but to have fish at this place is true experience. The Betki Fish prepared with Gondhoraj Nembu is truly delicious

I wouldn't recommend the "Oh! Calcutta" outlets for several reasons:
a) It's quite pricy!
b) It's not quite authentic - we were a family of four and spent around 5K for a meal, which wasnt all that extensive
Specifics about the items we had:
a) The jhinga-posto (vegetables in a ground poppy seed paste) had more aloo (potatoes) than jhinga, and the jhinga was watery and hence, not a well-cooked dish
b) the kosha mangsho (slow-cooked mutton) was much better at other Bengali cuisine restaurants such as Bijoli Grill and Bhojohori Manna
c) the hilsa baked in mustard paste was too dry and the retaurant should have told us to refrain from trying hilsa if it wasnt the right time to enjoy this "king of fish"
The highlights though were the mochar chop (vegetable cutlets) and the yellow ghoogni/ dal which we enjoyed very much. So in short, it wasnt all that authentic and i suspect I could have enjoyed a much more "Bengali" dinner at much lower prices. For the premium which they charge, this restaurant needs to do much better in terms of the food quality and overall dining experience (guidance on the dishes to try/ specials of the day; making us feel welcome, etc)
