Oh Calcutta

The next few posts will be from a recent trip to the North Island of New Zealand.

Our first meal was at Oh Calcutta in Parnell just east of the centre of Auckland, which has apparently won awards as one of the best Indian restaurants in the city. There were a few tables outside, we were in booth inside, with a view through to the kitchen.

The four of us shared the Chilli Prawns for entrée, they'd been flamed in a wok with chilli, lime and roasted cumin. The heat and flavours worked well.

The beef vindaloo was spicy bi not overpowering.

The dhal makhani was rich and flavoursome.

I hadn't had a chicken tikka masala for a while, and this was a reminder of what I'd been missing.

The naan was light and roti went down well.

The tandoori whole snapper had been marinated in a green masala, smoked over the tandoor oven. It was spectacular and fantastic to eat, once it had prized of the bones!

The service was good and fairly swift, and it would rate as the best Indian meal we've had in Auckland!
