“My favourite Asian food in Oxford”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Having eaten at practically every Asian restaurant in Oxford, I keep coming back here as I think that the food is always excellent plus service is good as it the atmosphere.

“Best Indian Food in Oxford”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

I went to Malikas the other night for dinner while staying in Oxford and received probably the best Indian food I've ever been had before. It's much better than anything you find in America. It's a family-run business and the staff are all genial and very attentive. They even served us complimentary Brandi with our dessert, which was a real treat. I'd definitely go back here again!

“ADEQUATE INDIAN”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

This is a pretty standard Indian with adequate food offering good value for money. The pickle tray was excellent as is the service. The food is adequate but not up to the highest standards available in Oxford. The meat was a little tough. Portion size is generous. Recommended if you are hungry without much money or if you need quick and attentive service.

Didn't book, just walked in and a table was set for us. The food was amazing. Probably the best Indian that I've had. Would highly recommend.
