"Definitely the best curry house in Oxford... if not the universe"


Gorgeous Thai and Indian menus mean there is a wealth of choice for any occasion. Every customer is treated like a VIP
An excellent Indian/Thai buffet and followed by a Rod Stewart Tribute act and dancing. This concept works well and not usually being a buffet lover, this is worth a visit
