We ordered take away. Waiting time was all right but the delivery man 'didn't have enough change'. We were going to give him a tip anyway but I just don't like when one forces to to be given a tip. Food was not very warm. Not that food was bad - it just tasted nothing - literally zero taste! My... More

On impuls (and with a litle help from Trip Advisor) we visited this Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant a mile or so outdide Oxford centre. The service was close to perfect and the food tasty. A variety of beers, but the Irish coffee a disappointment.

Came on a busy Friday night. Food was good. Pretty standard menu with all the usual suspects, nicely cooked and presented. One small area for improvement - more staff needed.

This is the best Indian Restaurant in Oxford. Outside the centre, it can be found at the sound end of the the high street in Summertown. The wait staff are welcoming, and the food superb. It is a regular stop on our annual visit to Oxford.

We were given an amazon voucher to use for lunch and so pleased we went although I don't usually think of indian food so early in the day. Everything was delicately spiced so you could enjoy each flavour without 1 dominating the taste, really delicious. Good friendly service - would recommend highly.

We had a delicious meal again. We were here 5 years ago to the day and the food was just as excellent. We highly recommend this place. The service is also excellent.

First you need to know that I almost never eat in an Indian restaurant because I don't care for spicy food. So I don't have a good basis for comparison. That being said, I really liked the meal I had at Spice Lounge, which consisted of two vegetarian side dishes and fried rice. It was very tasty without being too... More

Our party of 6 arrived on a Sunday night (F1 weekend) without a reservation. We were seated promptly and enjoyed a delicious meal. Service was attentive - made great recommendations regarding the menu without being over bearing. Would highly recommend!
