Set near the back of the Westgate centre on the roof, you walk up to the door and your senses are overtaken by the wonderfully fragrances of Indian food. An open space with high ceilings, wooden tables and chairs that look like swings, it’s a relaxed and a comfortable place to enjoy with friends or the whole family.
I think we got there at the wrong time, although the staff where friendly it took nearly 20 minutes for someone to even come and offer us a drink and give us a menu, then it took a further 20 minutes at least for someone to come back with drinks and take our order.
But in all fairness once food was ordered it came out quickly and the staff were attentive, so don’t let a small delay put you off.
The food is fragrant and delicious, there is an array of delights to choose from served on silver metal plates….fancy!!
They also provide a good allergy and vegan menus too. Therefore many dietary requirements are covered.
We opted for some Chat bombs to munch on and share, a crispy, spicy delight with an explosion of coconut yoghurt.
My main was a delicious mixture of goodness, the vegan Hindu box. A diving ginger and rhubarb dhal, crunchy Indian coleslaw and chilli chickpeas a pot of each to pop on my plate and scoop up with a roti….mmmmmmmm de-li-cious.
Then to pud. For the kids ice cream.
for myself a yoghurt rose lassies, TBH it was a little too much for me and felt like I was drinking a soap bar, but I’m sure there are some who would thoroughly enjoy this.
Access for my Wheels – Pretty Damn Good
Set in the newly refurbished Westgate centre, which is in the heart of Oxford city centre, there are a number of disabled parking underneath the centre and all around the city itself. Lift access to the roof with smooth walkways and views over the city. The restaurant itself is completely flat with wooden floors and good space to manoeuvre around in a wheelchair. The tables are at a good height to get under in a chair.
There is a disabled toilet at the back of the restaurant, which is spacious with all necessary bars, door lock and emergency cord.
Although the service was a little slow to begin with, I would defiantly recommend this restaurant for a bite to eat, not only are the menu prices extremely cost effective the food is delicious and it is a great place to enjoy, whether it be a night out with friends or an afternoon after theatre munch.
