If you are a Bengali in the city craving for the flavours of Kolkata and authentic Bong food, then Oh! Calcutta is your safe bet. The restaurant, which has now grown in leaps and bounds through its chains across geographies, is a name to bank on for Bengali cuisine. There is also an expansive À la carte menu for those who want to savour specific, hard-to-find-or-make dishes like the 'Dhokar Dalna', 'Mochar Ghonto' or 'Mustard-steamed Hilsa Fish'. The restaurant also hosts some must-eat-at food fests, specifically during Bengali festival seasons, which offer speciality dishes.
Objective was to eat food that was different from the usual Punjabi fare - and this place delivered. The Channa chop and grilled paneer were good starters. The banana flower stir-fry was amazing; the alu, dal etc were nice but not remarkable. The cocktails went down well. Overall a worthwhile visit to get away from the run-of-the-mill Indian offering.
The bhetki fish fry in starters and Nolen Gur Ice cream in dessert is a must try. The food overall is well cooked and delicious. Daab Chingri is a delicacy. Kacha lonka murgi and grand trunk chicken is a must have if you like chicken.
This place exudes Bengali charm, authenticity and serves very high quality delicacies. Their fish items especially Shorshe Ilish and savouries like Mochar Chop are a treat to the tastebuds. In desserts, must try is Nolan Gurer ice cream , it’s palm date jaggery ice cream absolutely delicious. Worth a visit for traditional Bengali cuisine.
We usually do not go out for Bengali food as we prefer the delicious home cooked food :-) Made an exception on the occassion of my parents 50th anniversarry and did not regret. Had booked a table for 7 via dineout. Service was good. Ambience was good too. Good variety of Bengali cuisine. We tried Murshidabadi chicken as starters and also had Aampora shorbot. For main course we had prawn malaikari (good), khulna prawn (a bit bland),ilish paturi (mom did not enjoy the mustard that much), pabda tel bori (good), grand trunk chicken (good), dhoka, chhanar kalia, bhaja moong dal, jhuro aloo bhaja (all good) and had bhapa sandesh and nolen gurer ice cream for dessert (all good). Being a Sunday afternoon, it was full. Lot of people preferred buffet though we went for a la carte.
