About Oh! Calcutta!

Located within a pakora’s throw of Bristol’s iconic landmark of The Arches, at the buzzing borders of St Andrew’s, Cotham and Montpelier, Oh! Calcutta! is setting up a hue and cry to exile substandard subcontinental cuisine from the city. Even before you get to the superb food, this Indian restaurant’s premises along Cheltenham Road are a sight for sore eyes. An open kitchen lets you see – and smell – what’s in store, while crimson-hued walls and an overall industrial chic look make for a less-than-usual venue in which to enjoy South Asian cuisine. A fantastic selection of tandoori classics rubs spicy shoulders with an exceptional selection of specific regional Indian dishes. Special note: if you like it hot, we dare you to step up from the already fiery, ‘3-chilli rating’ jalfrezi and chilli Bengal to the thermonuclear ‘Oh! Phall’, combining habaneros and dry chillies for a ‘6-chilli rating’.

Great food, great service and a refreshing decor - more Bollywood than traditional UK Indian Restaurants. The food, rice, sauce and breads were all delicious. Would visit again.
