Description: Welcome to Oxy Oriental. You’re here because you’ve heard we’re the best restaurant in Oxford. We wouldn’t like to correct you; we’d like to tell you why you’ve heard right. We serve the best Oriental cuisine that Oxford has to offer. From Malaysian to Thai, Japanese to Chinese. We’ve got all the bases covered. We also have a wide range of freshly prepared Sushi and a live Teppanyaki bar in the evenings. Coming to Oxy isn’t just a great experience… it’s an event you’ll never forget. You’ll be able to help yourself to our huge range of starters, mains and desserts from across the Orient. Our venue lends itself perfectly to any events you might have in mind… parties, celebrations, business events and private clubs or functions; Oxy Oriental caters for them all. We’re the best of all the restaurants in Oxford.

We go here often as a family, as there is a lot of variety of food so people can eat as much or as little as they want. The staff are always friendly but you’re pretty much left to your own devices as you help yourself. There is Chinese, Indian, and British with macoroni cheese, pizza, roast potatoes.

They have an ice cream machine and a chocolate fountain.

The reason for my 4 stars and not 5 is because I think drinks are quite pricey! It may be better to offer bottomless soft drinks

We ate here last Tuesday as Frankie and Benny was closing early.

The majority of the food was cold, satay chicken was the toughest I have ever eaten. Prawn toast may once have been edible but looked like it had been there for ages and was rock hard. Spicy chicken wings had no flavour at all. Noodles were OK but lets face it - you would have a hard job getting them wrong.

Should have complained but just wanted to get home after a very long day. Won't be using it again even if every other restaurant within 10 miles is closed for the night!

Visited this restaurant on Sat12 May at around 6 o’clock there were a few tables still available at this time being as it opened at 5-30. This was our visit and did not know what to expect. We were shown to our table and the waiter explained the whole process of the buffet and took our drinks order. The buffet was laid out with starters then mains and sweets in a different place. The food served was piping hot and was replenished as soon as it was getting low. The whole restaurant was very clean and tables were cleaned as soon as it became free wiping underneath and around the edges ( not seen in some eateries) would definitely recommend and will go back when next in area. One of the best buffet Chinese that I have eaten at.

I have had good meals in the past so I took two friends for lunch at Oxy. What a huge let down. We arrived at 12 15 and the food had been out a while evidently. While some was hot some was only barley warm. It looked as though some had been reheated and not freshly made. I am not sure why the big change but I doubt I will be back. The price isn't cheap so the food quality should be high.

In to see mid-week 19:40 movie at the Ozone got tickets and needed to eat so left plenty of time in at 18:00 and seated immediately close to the food, but lots of free tables. Soon started to fill. Love the variety of starters, I like Peking Duck pancakes, wife loves mussels lots of other stuff including some really sticky ribs. Trying to be disciplined stuck with the Chinese, wife had Indian, but other dishes; ate too much as usual, but it could have been worse. Service friendly and very polite and prompt. Not allowed deserts, but the banana and apple fritters were nice and unusual Dad went up a number of times and ended up with an ice-cream. Paid and got into the film in plenty of time and didn't fall asleep.
