Oh Calcutta: "A Taste of India in Auckland" Top 5 Page for this destination New Zealand Restaurant Tip by fishandchips

New Zealand Restaurants: 162 reviews and 140 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. Oh Calcutta is just down the road from another good venue - The Bog which is an Irish bar and an excellent choice for a post Curry pint of Guiness.

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.
