The food is amazing and the people who work there are amazing. Formal enough for a nice date, but also great for dinner with friends. Highly recommend--it's my new Oxford dinner favorite.

If you want something different to the norm you should definitely try Moya. The settings are rather bare but the food is quirky and very tasty. They also do a mean cocktail!

I'd say Moya is trying too hard. The food was lovely but in smaller portions than I expected and quite expensive regardless (even for Oxford). The restaurant presents itself as upmarket, but the selection on the menu isn't that far from what you would find on a table in Eastern Europe. I like that food, but I'm not willing to... More

I have eaten at lots of restaurants in Oxford but the food here is out of this world. I have been twice now and hope to go again. Lamb shank is pure bliss and the meat melts off the bone. Salmon supreme, turkey escalopes and stroganoff are all delicious with generous portions to boot! The deep fried cauliflower with lentils... More

More of a 3.5 stars, really! I wouldn't fault the food at Moya: the menu was interesting and thoughtful, with a surprisingly large range of vegetarian options, pleasingly, and service was swift and courteous. I couldn't fault the food itself at all. My only criticism would be that for what it was, I felt the food was a little overprice,... More

Holidaying for a week in Oxford we were spoilt for choice of excellent restaurants, but dinner at Moya was exceptional and would be a solid contender in the top ten meals of my life. We were attracted to the restaurant by the interesting menu, including - unusually for Eastern European cuisine - a number of tasty-sounding vegetarian options. The restaurant... More

Visited last weeeknd with friends , The resturant was very full and it took a while to have our order taken . The food was very tasty although the portions were a bit small , I was expecting my Goulash to be a big hearty meal but was disappointed by the amount of meat included in the bowl

I like the food - menu is limited but be sure to check the specials board. The staff vary a lot - from the slightly odd manager to the wonderful waitress. We've been lots and don't recommend going before 7.30 after which the staff have warmed up. Went early once and they were dreadful.

I went here with a group of friends as somewhere a little different to try. We had a great meal, lovely food - although the service was *a little* slow. Highly recommended.
