“A really good meal in nice surroundings”

We had a late dinner at Malikas last night. The food was great, the menu had lots of choice and it was a nice relaxed evening. The staff were friendly and helpful. A good addition to the Cowley Road!

“Delicious food, friendly, knowledgeable staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We went here last night, a group of 15, and not one of us was delayed or disappointed with the service and delicious food! I treated myself to a Chicken Chilli Bhuna, which has to go down as one of the best I've ever tasted. Cracking stuff!
To top it all, the waiters were sharp-witted, friendly, and always game to divulge a bit of extra industry knowledge when asked.

Fantastic night, and in no small part to this spot-on restaurant.

“delightful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

our teenage children were at the 02, so we went to have a meal at Malikas. We have never been to Oxford before and we had a lovely meal, the food was excellent, very tasty, the restaurant was very clean, and the staff were exceptionally pleasant. When our children came to look us out, the staff gave them complimentary cokes and gave us excellent directions to the ring road for our journey home. All together a great night!

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Really nice atmosphere, very supportive of big groups and incredible food. Couldn't recommend the place higher. They make people feel very at home with its contemporary layout and friendly service. Clean and hygienic and well priced, and if you're nice a complementary drink on the house. What could be better?
