Decided to visit this restaurant in July 2013 because of the reviews on TripAdvisor as we were staying a couple of nights in Oxford. This is actually a pub with a restaurant located in a residential area of Oxford and parking is reasonably easy to find nearby along the surrounding streets. Has to be said, we are struggling to understand why this restaurant is currently the number 1 restaurant to visit in Oxford. The decor consists of lots of pictures on the wall of the Himalayas and mountain scenes and the tables are basically pub tables and chairs. We tried a few of the main curry dishes along with rice, side orders and naan breads. Food was just average, nothing particularly special and we've had far better curries in other restaurants elsewhere on our travels. We visited at the weekend and there were only about 3 or 4 other couples in the restaurant (we thought it would be packed given all the rave reviews !). After waiting over 20 minutes after we had finished our food (no one took our plates or dishes away in that time because there seemed to be a sudden rush of takeaway orders) and waiting patiently to pay the bill, we eventually got up and went to the front desk to pay our bill. Whilst paying, we had the delights of peering straight through into the kitchen area through the serving hatch which is located behind the desk where we watched take-aways being microwaved up for the waiting customers. In summary, a very average curry house.
