This is perhaps the only place in Mumbai that you can head to for a quintessential Bengali gastronomic experience. The menu is an interesting mix of typical favourites as well as dishes which offer a creative twist. The eclectic bar menu is varied. The seafood delicacies here are a highlight. 'Kakra Chingri Bhapa' - the light and flavourful crabmeat and shrimps steamed with a dash of mustard and chillies, is delectable. 'Herbed Drunken Prawns' again are delightful and perk up the taste buds. The 'Cottage Cheese Dumplings' in a nutmeg flavoured curry are palate-pleasing and can be relished by vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Not many know that Bengali cuisine abounds in vegetarian delicacies and this place offers an interesting array. 'Dry Cooked Banana Flower' with coconut silvers with its mild and subtle flavours, wows one’s palate. The Classical Railway Mutton Curry with steamed Rice' is the pièce de résistance here. The desserts here are apt to pamper your sweet tooth cravings. The staff is polite and the service warm and efficient.
Excellent food. Not overladen with masala, and so flavourful. From the Daab Chingri to Lucchis eaten with Railway Mutton, to Fried Prawns, fried chicken, to flavourful Calcutta rice, bekti, and a soft luscious Malpua, everything was lip-smackingly good. The restaurant earlier had a dish called Mutton Razella which was our all time family favourite. Unfortunately that has been discontinued, and I sincerely urge the management to bring back that signature dish. The excellent service provided to us by Ashok, our server, made the meal a very pleasurable experience. After the restaurant has been 'done up', the ambience is very good, and with the lack of the loud decibel levels which we find in so many restaurants these days, it's a pleasure to eat here. If you are looking for excellent authentic Bengali food, then search no more!
Went there for a quick fish on a Saturday evening... There were not too many people - maybe because it was Ganpati time... The waiter took longer than expected time to come for taking the order... He recommended Betki and we chose Pomfret along with that...He came back after some time stating Pomfret is not there - a waiter not knowing what they don’t have is not good...Any ways chose Hilsa - which is supposed to be the best Bengali Fish...Betki was fresh, while the Hilsa was neither fresh nor anything out of the world...Also, mustard was a bit too much for a non Bengali...The sweet which was Gur ki Kheer was good...Overall - an average experience...
Came here for the Annual Ilish (Hilsa) Festival & had my hearts stolen! The festival is on at all their outlets across the country till end of this month. Make sure you don't forget to pay your respect to the Queen of fishes. It's a small restaurant but be assured you'll bump into fellow Bengalis. Food is prepared fresh & absolutely a feast for your palate. The staff is extremely welcoming & friendly. Must try: Begun Jhol Ilish (Hilsa in Light Broth with Brinjal) - Light home-cooked style preparation. Simple, yet leaves you asking for more. Shorshe Ilish (Hilsa in Mustard Gravy) - Eternal favourite dish. The combo of mustard & Hilsa is a divine treat for your tastebuds. Ilish Bhaja (Fried Hilsa) - Crispy fried fish served with a bit of rice, topped with mustard oil, salt & Gondhoraj (Kafir) lime - food heaven! Bhapa Sondesh - The flavour of Nolen Gur is heavenly & the sweet itself is soft & melts in your mouth. Overall, a fantastic experience that has left me yearning to go back for more. Loved the vintage cycle rickshaw outside!
One of the best places to go to for Bengali food in Mumbai. Prices lower than a fine dining restaurant but higher than the other Bengali food restaurants in the city. Ingredients are specially brought from Calcutta and you must ask for the Gondhraj lime to squeeze on you food. The aroma and flavour of the "king of aroma" lime is a must to experience. The starters are all good and accompanied by an excellent tomato chutney/salsa. You can also ask for the mustard sauce or kasundi. Catering for the fish lovers, the Hilsa and the Bekti, and a variety of prawns, chicken and mutton dishes they have a variety of vegetarian options which are all well made. Try the Gobindo bhog rice a plain steamed rice which goes well with the dals. The desserts like mishti doi, curds with palm date jaggery, a must, the rasgolla can be disappointing on certain days and the malpuas too heavy after gorging on the food. Fairly good alcoholic beverages served, look out for the many special deals offered during the whole year like a lunch platter or thali for 492/- per head or Hilsa festival etc. A delicious experience of good Bengali cuisine.
The first time I went there I was totally stumped by the staff, food , ambience, well everything. This time it was not really the same experience. Food was tasty. But we did face a few issues. First of all they were excruciatingly slow in their service. Secondly the kosha mangsho we ordered turned out to be just bones. No meat !! After complaining they did get us another portion but why not give it the first time. Other things we tried were the chicken chicken chops, puri with chicken jhol and Calcutta biryani. Biryani was average , gravy was amazing. Disappointed!
The best part about India’s gastronomy is that it is deliciously diverse with tons of variety and layers of techniques. Every state prides itself on having its own unique cuisine, effected by their local produce and heritage. The name West Bengal evokes a storm of food memories and a culinary fabric woven by a melange of various cuisines. But the traditional Bengali cuisine is a world in itself, dominated by the use of mustard and an abundance of seafood that gets delivered to each doorstep early in the morning. You can simply lose yourself in Bengali gastronomy, tucking into all those spicy curries with steamed rice or lucchi, a Bengali flatbread. You can enjoy the pleasure of Bengali gastronomy right here in Mumbai, at ‘Oh! Calcutta’ in Tardeo, a popular destination with the Bengali community.
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. 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. It won’t be wrong to say that Oh! Calcutta has done a great job of recreating this fabulous cuisine.
Finish your evening with few traditional Bengali desserts like misti doi, saundesh and rosogulla, all of them available in multiple flavours. The décor of Oh! Calcutta resembles a Bengali dining room with shuttered dark brown windows and walls covered in Bengali handicrafts. The focal wall at the back is a canvas to a beautiful Bengali landscape and instantly attracts your eyes the moment you step across the threshold. The interiors are elegant, neat, subtle and minimalistic. Dining at Oh! Calcutta fits your pockets nicely and doesn’t pinch much. You are in for a delicious mouth-watering time.
