We experienced a refreshingly original Indian dining experience at this modern restaurant. The chic and contemporary decor was complemented by soft lighting and unique finishing touches, creating a laid-back and relaxing environment.

The menu featured all the best-loved Indian classics as well as some novel and exciting dishes that I'd never sampled before. After the obligatory poppadoms with tasty dips, we sampled starters of pani puri - a popular street snack with a refreshing taste - and the hot and crispy pakora, which saw soft and juicy aubergine encased in a light, mildy spiced batter.

My partner usually judges an Indian restaurant by its madras, but simply could not resist the intriguing specials. As a result, we had Afghan lamb and bhindi gosht; the former comprised beautifully tender lamb, chickpeas and garlic, while the latter featured flavoursome fried okra and meaty chunks of lamb cooked in a medley of delicious spices. The cheerful waitress also recommended her favourite sides of aloo matar and green peas cooked with garlic, onion and spices, which we devoured with relish.

The view into the bustling kitchen generated a real buzz throughout the restaurant, with diners watching on in excited anticipation. Oh! Calcutta! really is an Indian restaurant with a difference. They cater brilliantly for parties, too, as a licensed venue with the option to BYO
