about oh calcutta restaurant

Take a stroll down Parnell Rise, and you'll discover a little piece of New Zealand that will remain forever Indian.

Oh Calcutta opened to critical acclaim just over 23 years ago at a time when there was less than 6 existing establishments within Auckland by chef/patron Meena Anand.

2017 sees Oh Calcutta being one of only two Indian eateries in the city with the orginal owners on its original site without a change in ownership.

Time has proven, with exceptional service and high culinary standards, Oh Calcutta is now firmly established as one of New Zealand’s foremost restaurants for North Indian cuisine. Serving a wide range of traditional dishes our chefs believe in the importance of the finest ingredients and attention to detail when preparing our meals.

We offer our guest's a diverse menu that draws inspiration from countless sources and offers many interesting tastes. Recipes that have passed through generations from mother to daughter.

Our recipes use only the best ingredients, fresh herbs and spices available so that you will experience authentic Indian cuisine the way it was meant to be enjoyed.

The generosity of our people is legendary.
In Sanskrit literature we say 'Atithi Devo Bhava'(the guest is truly your god)...in other words, we are honoured to share our mealtimes with our guests.

Our restaurant is renowned by some as the best Indian cuisine they have ever tasted, we recognize that the most important way that we can convey our love for what we do, is to have fun whilst doing it.

We welcome you to experience the journey and am I certain you will enjoy "your Odyseey" with us and leave with a strong flavour for our, spectacular country and a small sample of our culture and what it has to offer - Meena Anand
