The service was good. The waiters were kind and friendly. The ambience was very friendly and laid back. The food was not good. It was clearly reheated and the chicken tasted like it has been sitting out for hours. I would not recommend.

We have visited this place a number of times - the food is very nice and the staff is very helpful. A special mention for Mr. Nilesh. It can get crowded though and prior reservation is recommended

The Calcuta
.....started its journey of serving the Indian cuisine in 1998. Situated in one of the traditional and historical streets in the heart of Lisbon. The Calcuta is a real contribute to the preservation of authentic North Indian as well Goan gastronomy. (Goa: Old capital of the Portuguese empire in the east).

Situated in Bairro Alto, a big attraction to all who wants to be distracted, and a very animated place with local life, it is the center of most of Lisbon's agitated nocturne life with typical restaurants, International cuisines, bars, fados houses, bookshops, theaters, some of the most creative ateliers, fashion and design stores. With belvederes, turned to the beautiful landscapes of Lisbon city, Bairro Alto takes part today of the historic and typical areas (with perpendicular and straight streets and flower adorned windows) much loved by the Lisbon people.
