Don’t bother. Phone up to make a reservation. Ring back to check, because you aren’t confident they’ve taken the booking. Arrive, no booking. Waste of time.

Oxy couldn't have been more helpful accommodating us for our Xmas meal out. As charity youth project - ie noisy group of East Oxford teenagers - not many restaurants would have taken us on or given us such a competitive deal. We were looked after...More

We visited as a group of 9 I including 3 children, they certainly enjoyed the desserts! Food was nice, lots of staff to clear the tables but the drinks took ages to come.

We visited last night. The restaurant was super busy. I only have huge praise. The food was constantly replenished with hot, well cooked dishes. The staff were really efficient clearing and resetting tables, while still taking time to check you were happy with your visit.

One of the absolute worse place to go for lunch. We went there for lunch today, the food was old. Rice was harder than actual raw risotto. Food had no tag or displayed information, so we had to guess what was going on our plates....More
