My husband and I have lived in Oxford for 34 years between us and tried pretty much every Indian restaurant. We ate at Malikas last weekend and it was the best Indian meal we have had. Combined with excellent service, a great menu and a pleasant atmosphere, this is our new favourite and we will be back. We would particularly recommend the chot poti starter and the kodu gosht (lamb with pumpkin), also sweet and sour prawns and lamb tikka dhansak.

We tried Malikas restaurant on chance as we were only in Oxford for the weekend. It was the best Indian meal we had had in a very long time. The service was exceptional and the food tremendous. We were made very welcome and totally enjoyed our stay. Only problem was we were going home the next day and was unable to return.

Visited on a Saturday evening with friends. Started with nice fresh puppadoms. Menu has a great selection of dishes and we shared a number of them including lamb jalfrezi and King prawn bhuna. All dishes were lovely although one of the chicken dishes was a bit light on the actual chicken. Nans were good, parathas even better. Service was helpful and efficient. Would definitely return.

Working in the area and being curry lovers we tried Malikas and what a pleasant surprise. The food is fantastic, even dishes not on the menu the Ceylon is wonderful. The staff are friendly, attentive and eager to please and Abdul the manager is the jewel in this crown he really makes the difference.
We stayed in Oxford for three nights and didn't bother eating anywhere else, the food really is that good.
