Went here on because we used this restaurant last time we were in Oxford in 2012, and I have to say the food and service was the best for an indian restaurant we have ever experienced, it was my wife's birthday and we hadn't told them that but they asked why we were visiting Oxford, when they found this out,...

I was staying at Linton Lodge nearby, and was not very impressed with their restaurant for dinner (or for breakfast but that is another matter). This restaurant is about half mile away and well worth the walk. I love Indian food, include curries, tandori, etc. This place exceeded my expectations. The price is reasonable, the service is great, the experience... More

Good quality ingredients , really lean lamb & chicken The sauces are very light and not too thick like some cheaper restaurants ( I suspect this is because there doesn't seem to be any flour used to thicken ) Onion Bhajies were perfectly cooked - hot, crispy and melted in the mouth.

This was one of the best Indian meals I have ever had. The food was outstanding, the service was really friendly without being over attentive and the price was reasonable. It's a popular place and I know why.

We ate with our student daughter on an overnight visit. Very convenient for our B&B and reviews suggested it would be an ideal choice. The welcome and service were friendly and good, the eating area pleasant and spacious. Perhaps my choice of main course was unlucky, Chicken Podina but I didn't feel there was anything exceptional about the food. Nothing... More
