Been 5 times now and food has been brilliant, really good and always a happy waitress. At the end of they day you'll pay a bit extra for the premium food, but its not as expensive as other local restraunts

Yes, as some people have said, the service is slow. That is because they make everything by hand for you, as you order it. We eat at this restaurant regularly and are never disappointed. Nothing is too much trouble for Alan and his staff. Go to this restaurant, talk to the people at dinner with you, relax, take your time... More

Visited for a friends birthday. It was a Wednesday night so not very busy. The restaurant was lacking somewhat in atmosphere! There was a good selection of drinks. The service was awful, no smile, no interaction - Just terrible. Food was average, I was expecting more from word of mouth reviews! Won't be back.

Having been here a number of times previously and been impressed, this visit was arranged for a celebration. Unfortunately it was not up to the standards of our previous visits. This was due to the poor service (very slow), we appeared to have been forgotten or be invisible, despite attempts to catch the waiter / waitress eye. We opted for... More

What a pleasant surprise! The restaurant is just outside of Oxford with plenty of parking space. The food is absolutely delicious! The portions are very reasonable, and the flavor... The Mongolian lamb was lovely, satay chicken as well. Service was quick and polite, so why only four stars? Well, I did get my wine in dirty glass, other than that... More

Took the drinks order.Fine.Then we looked through the menu having never been here before there was a lot to look at. Was disappointed by how many times( in... More
