Living in Birmingham I have never found an Indian better than at home but this place was amazing! Beautiful food and fab service. Definitely need to book though as the restaurant is quite small... Nice pubs and bars in the surrounding area too.

I have lived in London for 3 years and have not had as good Indian food any where in the capital. Took a day trip to Oxford with visiting family and this place was a wonderful end to the day.

No need for a huge review. Its very simple- probably the best Indian food I have ever had. From the homemade pickles through to the homemade lassies and helpful staff- fantastic. Cant recommend any higher- go and you will have a great meal :)

Excellent, tasty food in good portions with a wide selection on the menu. We had the Lamb Passanda (£8.95), a Patia Chicken Tikka (£8.45), rice, chapati, tea and a large beer. The total was £29.35 for two for this dinner. Very polite and discreet service in a pleasant atmosphere.

Went on a Sunday and expected it to be quiet but was really busy. Service want brilliant, slow and even though empty glasses when they brought food out there was no offer of refills, had to ask. The food however was fantastic so absolutely would go again!

Easily the best Indian meal I've ever had. Subtle, well balanced, and lingering flavours to savour. We all agreed that each dish was superb. Will definitely visit again when next in Oxford.

It was a busy evening - but the service and food were excellent. Delicious, well cooked and nicely spiced curries. Fantastic naan bread - soft and fluffy. We had no complaints - and the bill was a nice suprise too. Very good value.

Lovely meal, in good surroundings, with excellent services. Fresh, hot and very tasty, I recommend the Tandoori half chicken, juicy, succulent and plentiful.

Popped in on the off chance on a Saturday night not knowing how popular the place was. We were very lucky to get a table. While we were there looking at the menu, many people were calling and being told they were fully booked. If you plan to eat here it seems booking is definitely your best bet. I had... More

Friendly service and great food gets 2 thumbs up from this reviewer. The wait staff were very helpful in reccomendations and tailoring to your needs. It gets busy in the evening so make sure to book in advance if you dont want to wait for a table.
