So disappointed. Had great reviews but after they were initially attentative we lost out to a bus tour. 50 minutes later we left, no food. Shame as poppadoms were served with great speed & reviews were good. Won't go back.

Having read the reviews I was looking forward to eating some great flavours and Spice Lounge didn't let me down. The garlic tomato instead of lime pickle was amazing and our sheek kebabs, tikka Masala and garlic Tawa (A dish I have never tried before)...More

This restaurant is highly reviewed and I was looking forward to it but I can only conclude that the residents of Summertown don't get out much. It was OK, nothing more. Largely standard Indian fare but nothing wrong with the food other than smallish portions,...More

Superb food, consistent, amazing flavour and authentic. Having visited most of Oxford’s “best” Indian restaraunts (Aziz, 4500 Miles from Delhi etc) this is surely the best..... Superb service ; very warm and friendly. Sensibly priced for the quality. Chicken Naga main dish is to die...More

Very good Indian in Summertown. Everything is spotlessly clean and the staff are very attentive, even when dining alone. The only quibble I would have is that the side dishes and sundries ( such as delicious naan breads ) are more expensive than other Indian...More

it would be around a half hour walk each way. If you wanted a closer Indian, there is a place called Chutneys which is 10 minutes away which I recommend equally to spice lounge.
