Great food in here, my butt was in a sling for a fortnight after having the lamb madras and an onion bhaji here,also quoffed a couple of bottles of wine EXCELLENTO
Good food at a fair price, even the matron enjoyed it and thats saying summit
You may dismiss Oh Calcutta at a glance as you pass. Fortunately, we did’nt and, as a result, enjoyed a very pleasant evening. Although the layout looked very much like a railway carriage, the seating was surprisingly comfortable with room to enjoy the unusual decor. Spotlessly clean with a warm atmosphere which made one feel at home.
The staff were attentive and the menu well presented giving plenty of choice at reasonable prices.
We thoroughly enjoyed our food plus wine and left feeling well contented with a promise that we will soon return.
Don’t pass – go in. You will not be disappointed.
I ordered takeaway for four last nigh and after reading a few reviews, I was expecting a lot more. Very average Indian food, pretty bland and uninteresting. There are much better Indian restaurants in Bristol - for example the consistently excellent Shish Mahal just up the road.
Funky looking place with red walls, a slightly canteen-like feel and bollywood movies projected on the walls - all of which I liked. We actually had a nice starter of poori here. But the main dishes were greasy and unpleasant tasting. Even under the nasty sauces, chicken was dry and tasteless, while my husband’s veggie curry seemed to be based on cheap cubed frozen veg. Left us feeling quite unpleasant. One to avoid.
Ohh Gosh. Noway recommended.
a) They need to change the songs they have been playing from years now. lol!!!
b) They must be kidding, The price certainly does not match ambiance, so much noise and late service.
c) It’s typical Bangladeshi food, no where near Indian food
d) Meat/chicken quality ( Which no body notices generally) needs lot of improvement
My favourite Indian restaurant in the whole country, I really cannot explain how good the food is and how welcoming the staff are, especially the owner who always takes time out to ask how i am doing whilst i wait for the excellent food. The food may seem a little pricey at first however the curries do include rice which makes them great value especially considering the portion sizes. I would heartily recommend a Lamb Rogan Josh and Garlic Naan to quench any hunger.
A contemporary take on the traditional curry house, this funky chrome and neon restaurant does away with the flock wallpaper to great effect.
The vibe befits the decor with a young Gloucester Road crowd. The menu sticks to (Anglo-)Indian traditions however, which proves to be a wise move as all the dishes I’ve sampled have delivered on taste and quality. Worth a visit if you want something a bit different from a curry restaurant.
Really incongruous combination of super slick interior design and Indian food but it certainly works and marks this place out as a unique take on a familiar cuisine. For me the departure from Curry House chic loosened up my expectations and I was able to depart from a predictable choice of veggie balti and a garlic naan. And I’m glad I did because every dish me and my dining companions had was flavourful and fresh. I can’t remember the names but had a great selection of starters that departed from the usual samosas and bhajis. A very great start to the meal.
The service was friendly and prompt, which rounded out a good experience.
I lived just round the corner from Oh Calcutta! for a long time and only first ventured there just as I was about to move away! However it is a fantastic Indian where the food is great and not too overly pricey. The great thing abou ttheir menu is that you can pick your sauce and your meat/fish/vegetarian option so you can have pretty much any combination you want. They also have a great selection of side dishes as well as all the usual breads and rices. The food is fantastic, although can take a little time to come (a good excuse to drink some fine indian beer!) and the atmosphere is really modern and comfortable. The only thing I will say is that I have tried to go on a friday and saturday evening without a booking - never do this as you wont stan d a chance of getting a table!
After a frustrating hour of trying to find an Indian that delivered, we decided to go the two minutes walk to pick up a takeaway from Oh Calcutta! And it certainly wasn't a mistake, it was very very tasty. Reasonably priced especially if you minus the rice, that all the dishes come with, I'm looking forward to eating in next time!
Very close to "The Arches" on Gloucester Rd is a very funky-looking Indian restaurant called Oh! Calcutta. It looks like it belongs in Amsterdam, Berlin, or other trendy European hotspot, with red walls, dim lighting, contemporary furniture and large windows.
Oh! Calcutta prices are above average, but are well worth it as a treat, especially the milder dishes such as Makhani, and the house specials from the chalk board. Service is friendly and quick unless it is very busy.
Worth checking out.
This differs from many curry houses in the sense that it has it's own unique style.
It is very modern and very cosy, with very dark lighting and candles on every table.
The staff are very relaxed and friendly, and unlike some other indian restaurants, let you get on with your meal without interruption.
There is plenty of options with a specials board. The main meals have rice included which makes this very good value for money.
Being in its out of town location it is never too busy, so you can expect a relaxed dining experience with good food and nice colorful surroundings.
