We enjoyed another marvellous evening at Oh Calcutta last night. Our curries were beautifully presented, full of authentic flavours and ever so tasty. The service was outstanding, always professional and friendly. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The tables are well spaced so you can...easily enjoy conversations without having to yell at each other. It’s easy to see why Oh Calcutta is rated Auckland’s best Indian restaurant, we would say the best in NZ.More

Decor ok. Staff very attentive. Had the goat curry - a mildly spiced brown stew. Not very exciting. Kebab starter soapy and tasteless. Rice and naan fine. Better places elsewhere I hope

Came here for the first time with a friend and my boyfriend. The food was absolutely delicious, Indian hot, just how we like it and the service was very good with friendly staff. We will be coming back :)

Oh Calcutta, is one of the best Indian restaurants in Auckland. Rich in flavour, super super delicious, full of variety, the restaurant in its truest sense depicts the flavours of India and the warmth of it's people. We tried the smoked tikka salmon for starters...and the aloo samosas and absolutely loved it. Would suggest to try out the Prawn Thokku as well. For a bomb of refreshing flavour, try out the paan icecream for desserts. How we wish we could eat more and try everything on the menu - looks like another visit to this amazing place is in order. Shout-out to Meena (the owner), your chefs and staff for a wonderful evening. We had a great time!More

This is our favourite Indian restaurant in Auckland. Not only is the food great quality but also the waiters are always so friendly. They remember us every time we visit which our young son especially loves

Wife and I experienced a wonderful evening celebrating my Birthday. What a cosy restaurant this place is, came in from the cold, but were warmed up very quickly. The ambience is this place suits couples and as well larger parties. I have to mention the...Lamb Seekh Kebabs (small bites) which were melt in your mouth and with just the correct amount of spices. The food is subtle in its spices and doesn't overpower the food, There is a great amount of thought and skill going into producing these dishes. A special mention must be made of the Goan Chicken Vindaloo, transported to another place and time, this is a must try if you like layers and layers of flavours that dance on your tongue. The staff are attentive but not overbearing which adds to the experience, the character of the owners have been imparted into the staff, well done! Our new favourite Indian Dinning place, for those special occasions and not so special occasions.More

This restraint was amazing and inviting, the curry and rice was subprime and it was generally a great vibe. The toilets are clean and great music is playing, saying that the restaurant was pretty hot but overall 10/10

The food is very nice here - we had butter chicken and mushroom and spinach. Portions are small but it’s really a fine dining Indian restaurant. Very nice food - we will come back . Ice cream at the end was very nice and they...have a good whiskey list and some nice craft beersMore

Came up from New Plymouth to see the Van Gogh show. Thought that we would treat ourselves with some nice Indian food. Was disappointed. Service was sporadic. The prawns were overcooked. Onion Bhaji was weird. Would not recommend.More

It's probably better that you Google the restaurant and look at the menu and prices for yourself. I'm afraid I can't remembered exactly what we paid as I wasn't the person who paid the bill.
