Very delicious Indian dishes in Oxford with nice service. So tasty curry with fresh meat and vegetables. Also they did a great job for the bread as well. Reasonable price(No service charge) and the waitress/waiter are so friendly. We will definitely visit this restaurant again.

Small place recommended by a colleague. The service was good and food excellent. Nice mixed starter and a not so spicy Chicken jalfrezi. I would recommend this place!
