I have ordered takeaways from Oh! Calcutta! for years, however I was a bit apprehensive of ordering after recent reviews mentioned a long wait. However I ordered a takeaway for nine people for my birthday and the food came quickly within the 45 minutes they stated and it was excellent! I really like how all their curries already include the... More

This was up there with one of the worst Indian takeaways I have had. Watery, tasteless and poor quality ingredients. I don't know if the quality control is lacking or what because it seems to attract good reviews from others but this is the 2nd and last time I order from here.

Visited here early evening one Saturday as a couple. We were unsure of how busy the place got so I made a booking for the table. There were only a few other people dining during our visit but toward the end the tables started to fill. Food was nice, most of our dishes were tasty - there was one starter... More

Brilliant attentive staff, lovely food. Usually buy a take away from here. Decided to have a meal at the restaurant. Delighted by the main guy who really looked after us.

Not being the biggest fan of curry, this was rather yummy! Having discovered that I like lamb patia this is now my dish of choice. We were there early, so got excellent service and the food came out quickly. Rather trendy and quirky place, which was very cool...

Went for a birthday meal. The food took literally 2 hours to arrive. When asked whether we could have some money off we were just told the reason was the chef had a headache.... No discount was offered...

Visited last night and the food was just amazing. All six of us agreed that the Peshwari naan was the best we've had! A decent sized menu with lots of choice, including Red Snapper fish dishes for those who want to try something a little different! The lamb dishes we had were all incredible! All of the staff are incredibly... More
