Why Calcutta Indian Food is special ?
Calcutta Indian Food has some of the best Indian curry dishes and naan bread. Like all other Indian restaurants in Taipei, the price isn't cheap like non-Taiwanese are use to, but it's acceptable and cheaper than most other Indian restaurants in Taipei. You can choose the level of spiciness for your curry dishes.
The decor will be familiar to lovers of Indian food around the world: Colonial-period, patterned wallpaper in a deep ochre red, a mini chandelier, a few brass fittings and a couple of India-themed pictures. Service is informal and friendly.

I'm not a religious person but Indian food can sometimes invoke within me a religious experience. Living in Taipei it's hard to find quality Indian food, but Calcutta Indian hits the spot. The prices are reasonable and the quality is good. I normally get their palaak paneer (cottage cheese and pureed spinach) but having celebrated many o' friend's birthdays there I've tried almost everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. The average price of a dish is NT$250, but they offer a lunch specials for around $190 which include rice, naan a drink and a salad. My main reservation is their opening hours. They close most days at 9:30pm, a reasonable time for any restaurant to close at but sometimes, Indian food cravings can hit suddenly and with force. It's also a bit tricky to find- it's on the basement level of a retail building. To get there take the escalators to B2 and then walk around the basement, there are many restaurants, just look for the sign.
