“Bit of a waste of time and money.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Uninspired, lazy, flavourless and overcooked. I'd just put it down to bad luck or bad ordering if was just one dish that suffered, but out of the eight dishes we ordered all of them were either limp, overdone, or cold. Not really one to write reviews, but as we chose this restaurant on the strength of the favourable reviews both here and on hungry horse it seems right to balance it out. It was takeaway, the delivery was slow, but just about forgivable. Ordering was a pain too because they don't have an up to date menu up online.

“Headington's little Asian gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

This little restaurant is a delight every time we visit. I've never eaten anything I didn't like here! The menu is extensive, and I always feel I could eat anything on it! The dim sum is gorgeous, the Thai fish cakes are beautiful, the Szechuan dumplings starter is a must try, and the tea gets refilled as often as you like! There is a different menu for lunch and for the evening, and from what I can tell everything is freshly (and beautifully) cooked. The atmosphere is restful, the staff are polite and courteous, and the whole experience is one I would recommend, and one that has kept us coming back!

“If your going to be hungry in two hours your ok”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

I'm staying at Churchill hospital, and I'm going to be in a while so as a treat we have a a takeaway on a Saturday evening, we ordered the food at 7.10 and were told 30 to 40 minutes, my husband went down only to be told another two minutes, we finally got the food at 8.45. We did get an apology but no discount whatsoever, if I'd have been there we'd have got it free as I would have refused to pay. The food was plentiful and tasty, the other criticism we had was the salt and pepper ribs were deep fried in batter? Never experienced this before and it made them too greasy. Would I use them again, only if I was desperate, I think there are enough take always in oxford to get a good one that can deliver. Poor show I feel. Should have discounted to prove their worth.
