“THE place to go if you want authentic Bengali cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

It's undoubtedly Kolkata's best Bengali cuisine restaurant. The ambiance is excellent with beautiful decoration, seating arrangement and soft music. The waiters very helpful. If you're not sure about what to order, ask them. They're willing to help you out and they give excellent suggestions.

We had Gondhoraj Bhetki (a type of baked fish) & Drunken Fried Prawns for starters, both of which absolutely delicious. Most recommended. In the main course we had Rice, Kaju Kismis Pulao, Dal, Aloo Bhaja (crispy very thin-sliced potato fries), Mochar Ghonto (a dry preparation made with banana flowers), Kosha Mangsho (Goat meat cooked in a rich gravy with traditional spices), Jhinge Diye Pabda Macher Jhol (a fish curry with a certain vegetable) and Dab Chingri (Prawns cooked with coconut milk and served in a Coconut!). For deserts, we had Nolen Gurer Ice-Cream and Bhapa Sondesh.

While almost all the dishes were extremely delicious, I would strongly recommend: Gondhoraj Bhetki, Drunken Fried Prawns & Dab Chingri. The total cost came out to be Rs. 6000/- for 5 of us (note that we had a really sumptuous meal).

Since it was the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of my grandparents, they brought a complimentary delicious chocolate cake at the end of the meal. Overall we had an extremely satisfying experience, just as usual, at Oh! Calcutta.

“Great food with over the top price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2012

Liked the food which was very innovative. Served in a flamboyant way. However the foods are very pricey. The ambience of the restaurant is highly sophisticated.
