“Good food”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

Pretty much the same as most speciality restaurants, but I find the service here not so great - a typical Kolkata issue - if you ask me to rate the Oh! Calcutta in Mumbai and Delhi, I'd give them 6 out of 5 - but even though the food is as good here as any of the others, it is the service which makes you deduct one point!

“Great for authenticity, can be hard to know what to order”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

We went here because we heard so many people rave about the food. I liked that it was all authentic Bengali food (i.e. lots of good fish!) in a nice restaurant atmosphere (i.e. lots of good air conditioning), but I did find it harder than some other restaurants to know what to order, and the food was almost too spicy to eat in some dishes, so it is worth telling them to tone it down if that isn't your thing.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

I have been visiting this place since it opened and have been very loyal to it. It has excellent food. The service is good. Although it being a bengali restaurant the north India food is excellent too.

“Pretentious Bengali food”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

If it is an overpriced Bengali meal that you seek, this is the place for you. The food is of inconsistent quality, the portions sometimes less than generous and the service good in spurts. Eminently avoidable is the lunch buffet. There are far better options available for Bengali food. Having said that, some of the Anglo-Indian dishes - the railway mutton curry, for instance - are very good.
