Oh Calcutta: "Best Indian in Parnell" Oh Calcutta Tip by fishandchips

Oh Calcutta, Auckland: 2 reviews and 2 photos

You'd think with a name like Oh Calcutta this place might not be that good however you would be completely wrong. The setting on Parnell Rise is really good with a few outside seats kept warm, if it's on the chilly side, by some heaters on the ceiling.

The service was quick and the food really good. A good selection of beer was on the menu & my friends (one Irish & one from Hong Kong) had the Kingfisher Strong & Tiger beer respectively. The food came from all Indian directions so choice was not an issue - everything from the (fatty) buttered stuff to very hot Vindaloo.

Favorite Dish: The Fish Tikka was surperb and the Tandori Chicken quite large. The Chicken Madras was very nice and the fragrant rice complemented the meat.
