Absolutely wold class dining! VERY good food with amazing flavours. Not too heavy but also not dry - as good as I have had over many years of dining out. All the staff were very polite and friendly. The restaurant was immaculately clean. My wife...and I will definitely be returning very soon. My only comment is that I feel the starters could be a little smaller. The problem being, it was so good that I had to eat it all! I did manage to finish my main course but with no room to even consider s desert.More

My family and I have recently moved to Bicester and being Indian I am extremely fussy about what constitutes as a good curry. The food here was delicious and my husband and I were so pleased with the customer service. It is so important to...get the customer service right in a large restaurant where people don’t feel ignored or left for long periods of time. The food was well presented and was delicious We will return with the rest of the family soon.More

Family Saturday evening gathering, 6 of us in our mid to late 70's. Restaurant quite stylish, our service was quite good in a busy situation, our food was mediocre at best. The biggest problem was the manager/owner in charge. He treated us to a full...on animated yelling and shouting rant aimed at two of his staff that would have made Gordon Ramsey blush. Worse still it was done in public across the restaurant and went on for some minutes. It was shocking and the two waiters involved stood cowed and just had to take it.More
