The staff was friendly to start with when I entered the place with another friend. We ordered several starters and some mains to share.
Whe one of the fish dish arrived (supposedly a freshwater fish from India/Pakistan), we just could not eat it as the fish was bad. When this was brought to the waiter's attention, he asked either the manager/proprieter to our table who then became hostile and declared to us that it was never mentioned in the menu the fish was fresh. We explained that the fish was bad and he just would not have it. In the end we just accepted that we will pay for the food if they would take the dish away and voila the smiles came back again.
The whole experience just goes to show how superficial these poeple and one has to wonder about the quality of the food that they produce even if some reviewers like the food.
Working nearby in Headington this would have been a regular place for me but after this experience, I have warned everyone at work in Headington to stay away lest they received similar treatment.
This visit was back in 2010 but it was such a bad experience and coming across this restaurant in tripadviser as one of the top recommended place in Oxford, I feel I need to share my experience with everyone.
Therefore the marked box of Jan 2012 below is done as it does not allow any review before this date.
