Not much needs to be said about this chain. It has stuck to its tradition of a good Bengali meal in a classy style. So what if it is a bit hefty on the pocket? Bringing old Kolkata charm to its menu, some of the dishes have been innovated with brilliance. They have an array of preparations in fish like the Bekti Gondhoraj, a super success. During the hilsa season, they come up with a variety of dishes from boneless to smoked to traditional with several innovations too. The Kosha Mangsho with Luchi is also a great combination and is one of the best in the city. The buffet menu is equally enterprising and has some of the specials like Kancha Lanka Murgi, a traditional dish like Lau Chingri and innovative desserts like Nolen Gurer Mousse.
We were back to this place for lunch on a family occasion. Though we had booked a table in advance, neither the gatekeeper nor the waiters had any inkling about our reservation and in true Kolkata tradition we allotted a table of the waiter’s choice. Again, as is common in many restaurants, the better beer brands listed were not available and we settled for Sangria which was overtly fruity and watery. The highlight of the meal was “Pressure Cooker Mangshor Jhol”, which was recommended when we asked the waiter for his suggestion. It was a typical mutton “jhol” (can’t decide whether to call it stew or curry!) that millions of Bengalis look forward to for their Sunday lunch. And to highlight the authenticity it was served in a pressure cooker. “Karka Chingri Bhapa” is our old favourite. “Mochar Chop”, “Bhajar Thala”, “Khulna Chingri Curry”, “Channar Kalia”, were as good as they come, but nothing to differentiate. Desserts consisting of Aam Bhapa Doi & Gondhoraj Mousse were creative. Actually first impression endures, and as I first experienced this chain in New Delhi, it has occupied a place of pride in my personal pecking order. Also, it is a choice for introducing out of town guests to Bengali cuisine. Nevertheless, in Kolkata, there are umpteen establishments offering superlative Bengali cuisine, at a lesser price point. So the differentiator is ambience and service. While the ambience is good, I am constrained to say that service is way below my experience in New Delhi.
One of the best Indian meals I've eaten in my life (and I eat a lot)! Every dish was fantastic - from the hilsa to the meat with lucchi!
Entrance is via a tatty shopping mall, you have to go to third floor in unsavoury lift, went in and shown to a table, too brightly lit and very cold, quite busy but really rude children running around from a number of tables and this was at 9.30pm, not acceptable. No help with choice from menu and told no Kingfisher beer only Bud. Not offered a wine or spirits list. No ambience and too noisy, average food, far better places on offer.
Went for dinner, liked the food and the service. Overall a good experience. I would recommend the place.
Myself along with family members had a wonderful dining experience at Oh Calcutta on 8.2.19. Dinner with Prawn Cutlet, Dab Chingri, Pompret fry, Barishaler Chingri Polao, Kosha Mansho -- delicious. Very Courteous staff members and prompt service.
What is the best way to experience any new city than its food? No other city is more well-known for its gastronomy than Kolkata, which is a melting pot of various cultures.

One brand has tapped into the Bengali fixation by introducing general public to the delights of Bengali cuisine through ‘Oh! Calcutta’. One of two outlets of Oh!
