If you visit this restaurant try the Goulash with dumplings! It's lovely and I'd recommend the Czech zlaty beer too, service was great! And reasonably priced! Definitely worth a visit if you're in Oxford.

We came and had really tasty mocktails. We both had the devils toast to start which was absolutely delicious! I then had the beef goulash and my boyfriend had the pork goulash which were both really really good. Great service and a lovely restaurant/atmosphere. We will be back!

It was a Friday night, we hadn't booked (always book if you can) but the staff kindly fitted us in. We were not disappointed, it was the second time visiting this restaurant. The food was excellent, and allergies are taken seriously. The choice was very good and the service was excellent. Very happy and satisfying experience. Thanks to all the... More

Food was great and so was the service. Cute little restaurant that was recommended to us by an Eastern European friend and it did not disappoint!

An unpretentious little restaurant serving freshly cooked food. I had an exquisite sea bass. My husband who is veggie was thrilled to have choice and very pleased with his main course. Service was good and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

We spent a pleasant evening at Moya. Staff was lovely and attentive. I was particularly impressed by the beautiful fresh roses on the table, which is a real plus in my eyes. The food was presented nicely. I was, however, a little taken aback that I wasn't able to order their mushroom dumplings as a starter (since I didn't like... More

A friend from Eastern Europe suggested going to this place for his birthday having rated it before. When he called to ask if he could add two more people to the table, the owner refused and was quite unpleasant about it. So the two extra friends went home. Later, the owner called to say yes it was fine but it... More

moya_oxford, Owner at Moya, responded to this review

In fact your friend booked a table for Saturday for 6 people, so he wanted to add 4 last minute guests in all. We were fully booked before we opened and he rang after opening. He had seemed unsure of numbers so, just in case, I had kept a table free, especially for you, and joined it to yours. When... More

Moya is a small and tidy restaurant not too far from the cennter of town. This is a Slovakian menu and we were attracted by the Hungarian Goulash though I decided to order Turkey medallions instead. The Goulash had a slight red-pepper tinge to it which added a nice kick, and the Turkey was slightly browned with a light sauce.... More

We came here as a group of five on Saturday night. I ordered the pork and sauerkraut in creamy sauce. It sounds unusual, and it was, but perfectly blended flavours and a delicious result. Friendly staff, who genuinely want you to appreciate the food. Try this place before it gets to be part of the Oxford trend!

Never had Slovak food before and we thought it was delicious! Really tasty and well cooked with friendly service. The cocktail I had was also fantastic. Oxford restaurants can veer towards style over substance but this isn't one of them. We chose fairly traditional dishes and they were super filling. A great place for the colder weather - goulash, dumplings... More
