Oh! Calcutta taps into the old-world charm of Kolkata to bring traditional Bengali cuisine to the North Indian palate. The slow-cooked kosha mangsho is as authentic as it gets and probably as good as the one served in a loving Bengali home. There is heart behind the food of this restaurant and even though its success has turned it into a franchise, the soul remains. The menu is heavy on fish preparations and won't leave you disappointed. Furthermore, Anglo-Indian classics like the 'Lobster Thermidor' make an appearance on the menu, attesting to the diverse history of the city and the cuisine. Don’t forget to end your meal with the famous Calcutta Nolen Gurer or jaggery ice cream.
If someone is looking for toothsome bengali cuisine, trying out oh calcutta is a must. Its buffet section mainly it serves during lunch time , has a lot of options both veg and non veg. My favourite dishes are , luchi , kosha mangsho, crab, kachalongka chicken, gandhoraj lebu chicken.
Somehow I had not visited Oh Calcutta before. Visited this place this Friday while in Cyber Hub which is conveniently located in Gurgaon. Opted for the buffet and we had to rush for another meeting so couldn't spend time on decision making! The buffet was elaborate, with chicken, fish, prawns starters and main course for non-vegetarians matched by similar variety in vegetarian options. The food was delicious to say the least. Some of the best Bengali food I have ever had. They had enough carb through rice and breads, to accompany the main courses. Luchi deserves a special mention in breads as they were extremely well prepared. Dessert option were not as many as you see in other eat-all-you-can buffets, but what they lacked in quantity was made up in taste. Multiple types of Sondesh and Jaggery kheer and a couple of other things. Service can be a bit faster.
This is one of the premium options where someone should try out authentic Bengali cuisine!!! They maintain the flavor and the very taste of each of the items without compromising any single aspect. The ambiance is perfectly suited for a family dining be it lunch or dinner. Of course recommendation is to try out their buffet whenever available as it will provide you with maximum variety!!! I do not like to single out any item as I likes almost each and every item. Service is quite prompt and all of them are quite courteous. You must have a visit this place if you are a foodie or food evangelist and have an inclination of authentic food!!!
If you are looking for delicious Bengali cuisine then Oh! Calcutta is the place. Love the luchi, kosha Mangsho; the dab chingri was good not great but the matal chingri starters were awesome. The ambience is good and the service is excellent.
I’ve been to the Oh Calcutta in Delhi’s Nehru Place several times, but never to the one in Cyber Hub. This time, at Cyber Hub for lunch with my husband, I spotted Oh Calcutta, and suggested we try it out, especially since both of us like Bengali food. Inside, the restaurant evokes Calcutta interestingly: on the walls are large window-sized frames that resembled the polished wooden shuttered windows so common in old houses of the city. There are stunning black and white photos, of Calcutta, and from Bengali cinema—Uttam Kumar, Suchitra Sen, Soumitra Chatterjee. Weekends are days when Oh Calcutta has a buffet on offer (I don’t know if this is there the rest of the week, too, but there was a special ‘weekend buffet’ tent card at our table). Of all the tables occupied in the restaurant (and there were quite a few, considering this was peak lunch hour on a weekend), it seemed as if everybody was eating from the buffet (and yes, I heard all conversation in Bengali, so I’m guessing these were all Bengali families, and they seemed to like the food a lot). We decided to order a la carte and ended up liking our food too, a lot. Here’s what we ate, and what I felt about it: Complimentary appetizer: This was placed at our table right after we’d ordered, so we had something to munch on while we waited for our starters to arrive. A basketful of fried papad (not the very spicy variety), with two types of dipping sauce on the side. One was a yoghurt-and-grated cucumber one, very mild and cooling (rather like a cucumber raita); the other was a tomato-based one with a lovely hit of raw mustard oil. We liked these so much that we pretty much finished them, and the waiter kindly brought us replenishments, of papads and of dips! Bekti gondhoraj: Steamed boneless bekti, covered with a very mild thick sauce (I think based on coconut milk) and flavoured with the very fragrant gondhoraj lime. This was garnished with a half-slice of gondhoraj, a little grated gondhoraj zest, and a slice of red chilli. Very elegant, refined and mild dish that allowed the fish and the gondhoraj to be showcased beautifully. I would happily go all the way to Gurgaon just for this! Mochar ghanto: This is a dry dish made from mocha (banana flower) and coconut. The mocha itself doesn’t have an extremely pronounced flavour, so the flavour in this dish comes more from the coconut and the spices—like the cinnamon (cassia?) bark in it. Crunchy, tender, very addictive. I loved this. Pressure cooker maangshor jhol: We decided to order a mutton dish for our main course and had settled on kosha maangsho, but our order taker informed us (well done!) that the mochar ghanto and the kosha maangsho would both be dry. So we asked him to suggest an alternative, and this is what he came up with: pressure cooker maangshor jhol. It came served in a cute little pressure cooker too, with succulent pieces of mutton, some potatoes, pieces of tomato and roughly chopped coriander stems. What with the thin gravy (the jhol), the rough-cut vegetables and herbs, and the whole garam masala, this was an endearingly rustic sort of dish which I loved. Very good, along with the steamed rice we’d ordered. The menu has lots of other mouthwatering dishes on it (including desserts), but we were both so full by this time that we stopped at that. Delicious food, and at only Rs 1599 (all taxes and service charge included) not outlandishly expensive either.
Bengal region has gifted our nation not only with superb textiles or stunning actresses but also with addictive food. Bengali cuisine has yet to gain popularity in the commercial sense but Oh! Calcutta has left no stone unturned to make it popular globally. The Cyber hub, Gugaon outlet is oldest and most accessible. Easy parking is one point in their favour. Bengali food is seafood oriented due to its fishing industry. But vegetarian dishes are an integral part of the menu too. The décor of the restaurant is very simple and classy. No sudden pop of colours or handicraft to draw your focus from your food. They are that serious about their cuisine. The food is known to be of excellent preparation here. The place is slightly expensive but make up for it in taste. The pale wallpapered walls and simple comfortable furniture are pleasing to the senses.
The menu contains both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options for leans heavily on fish items. Steamed fish/crab with lemon, ginger, chilli makes a delicious and light starter. Steamed spinach and broad beans called as sheem palong paturi make an equally yummy choice. Fish fry and prawn cutlet taste as good as it sounds. Green peas and lentil cakes are served with aromatic curry as entrée. Fresh water jumbo prawns can be cooked in your choice of gravy too. Fish cooked in spicy yogurt gravy or lovingly called doi maach is worth having. Fish dominates the menu. Vegetarians won’t be disappointed but if you happen to love your sea bounty then you will be in heaven. Fishes are presented in every technique and every way. Steamed, curry, finger, broth the ways to cook are mind blowing. Sweet crab meat in contrast to spicy rubs are multi-dimensional. Burning lips and sweet tongue is out of this world experience that you do not mind repeating and often. Prawns are mutant like huge. They are succulent and sweet. Add aromatic coconut gravy to them and they can convince you to visit Oh! Calcutta every week religiously.
Deep fried puffed bread widely called lucchi is on menu too. Aloo posto is its better half. Bengali desserts are class in itself. They are unlike any dessert served in the city. European custards don’t work here. Sweet flavoured yogurt aka misti doi is national favourite. Rossogulla and sondesh is bengal’s blessing to us. The management is friendly and will give you a memorable evening. But food will take care of the rest.
