We had a warm welcome from the friendly staff and the good service continued throughout the meal. We split an order of saag gosht and naan, both of which were excellent. It was our last meal in New Zealand before returning home and we enjoyed it thoroughly.

I loved it here. The food and service were great and the wine recommendation was perfect with my dish. Anand, the owner, was kind enough to give us some tips for our New Zealand trip including his favorite wineries. We had a great time!

Our friends who are locals have often talked about their favorite Indian restaurant. So on a recent trip to Auckland we got to enjoy the fantastic food & service with a lovely atmosphere. We have travelled in India and the food at Oh Calcutta is just as good if not better than some of our Indian experiences.

Delightful to find such a lovely restaurant on the other side of the world! Staff were very helpful but much as the butter chicken was flavourful the vindaloo was a madras at best. Thank you.

We are a group of four couples from Canada who all enjoy Indian food. After searching Trip Advisor for a good Indian restaurant in Auckland, we had decided on one with a higher rating than Oh Calcutta. On the drive from the airport, I asked our East Indian driver about his favourite place and it was Oh Calcutta! We wandered... More

Came here for my birthday at the end of last day and was very impressed that this restaurant lived up to all the positive reviews I had read. The tandoori salmon was divine and we all loved the onion bhaji too. All the curries were delicious and don't go past the garlic naan

The food was authentic Indian, and you could tell that it was cooked by a professionally trained chef, not like amateurs in most other Indian restaurant in the country. The service is very efficient and the staff is very friendly. If in Auckland again, I will visit this place again for sure. P.S. I would the uniform of the waitresses... More

Nice indian restaurant just off downtown, nicely and typically furnished. The service is definately a full fiver, very kind, prompt and caring ( always with a smile ! ). The shrimp appetizer exceptional as for the naan, prepared on site and cooked in typical oven. Slightly disappointed on the Lamb Vindaloo, a little bit too acidulous and meat consistency quite...

Have not not had an Indian for 10 years in NZ, so today was the time to change all that. Visited Oh Calcutta many years ago and had positive memories so a chance to return. We shared some amazing spicy prawns and then moved on to a chicken and a lamb curry. We opted for the Indian Medium and Indian... More

My first time at this place, always heard about it from my friend. Good service/amazing food. Daal makhni was authentic. One of the best naans ever. Close to perfection. Definitely going back.
