I came here for a quick lunch whilst in Oxford. The Malaysian dishes on the menu are quite extensive and there are additional dishes on the Sunday afternoon when I was there such as laksa and prawn noodle. I ordered the fried kuay teow which...was well cooked and came with a nice sambal dip. A good choice for malaysian food when in Oxford. The decor of this place is more humble and cosy compared to their branch in south kensington.More

The worst customer service I seen in Oxford. Haven't said nothing at the table because was in a shock of what I'm witnessing... It was so shocking that even was comedic. Who's in 2021 says something like "LADY!! I need that menu, please LADY, move!"...C'mon! Just our water was rude to the brink, no matter what reasons behind it just not acceptable behaviour. We tried to arrange our order of 7 people, by starters and main to help out - instead we were commanded with rude voice of tone what to do. I will repeat myself commanded!! The worst waiter by far!! If not at least the rudest for sure. Food was okay this is why two stars not one. Might have tasted better if not down spiral by the rudeness of the waiter..More

disappointed with the fried rice. not asking for a fancy, michelin-starred dish but at least decent. it was really tasteless. the satay chicken was not the traditional malaysian satay chicken. squid with salt in the appetiser was good, then again, char kway teow was just...mediocre. i can vouch that the fried rice was really bland but the other dishes might just not be to our likings as the restaurant is always fully booked and it was full house that night. staff were friendly, helpful and the reservation process was really smooth and the staff was attentive enough to our reservation requests.More

I ordered Singapore noodles as a take away. Delivery was good and on time. The dish however was a disappointment. Very spicy and had few tiny pieces of chicken. The prawns were not fresh at all. Barely any veg - essentially a dish of spicy...noodles.More

Delicious Malay/Chinese food in a friendly, cosy atmosphere. I’ve never been to Malaysia but I’ve travelled and eaten extensively in Indonesia, Singapore and China, and I can tell you Zheng’s soup noodles are the spicy, coconutty real thing. The staff and service were excellent and...my Chinese wife and her Chinese friend were impressed.More

I request a request for deliveroo of an order for 2 people, almost 25 pounds and we were almost hungry. It was rich but not worth it, small portions and expensive

As a vegan this was great and delicious as usual! Lots of meat free options! Yummy! My mouth is watering thinking about it!

Mixture of some Asian countries food which was very nice. Dim Sum spot on, Sesame prawns on toast were different and lovely - more like scones than toast. Main courses very good too - we shared chicken in black bean sauce, and crispy shredded beef....All served very efficiently.More

Wow! Amazing food at this Pan Asian restaurant. We happened to come across this on our day trip to Oxford. All the Szechuan dishes were a fantastic. Highly recommend this place. Staff were very friendly helpful.
