The food was nice, just the curry and rice/bread portion was not right, meaning we had some curry left at the end which went to waste. Also, the screens put up for COVID were just for design, not exactly a preventing screen, which were therefore useless. Overall a good experience.

The food is awesome and authentic North Indian taste. could do with A better portion of bread/rice in the set menu to
Make it value for money but the taste is very good and variety is very wel thought of.
The staff was cold and arrogant. (Especially the one serving our table.)
So much so that the comfort level to ask him for a surprise for my husbands bday (paid obviously!) was minimal.
Overall the best place in oxford for authentic Indian food and a good day spent.....

Another excellent meal for a birthday celebration.
The staff are attentive without being intrusive and the food was delicious.
Top tip - order double portions of peshwari. One portion isn’t enough!

Really good. Delicious. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that it wasn't Michelin star but nor are many very good restaurants. it was REALLY good.

Service was exceptional from start to finish, however, food left an awful lot to be desired. Four of us opted for the sharing menu so we could taste a variety of dishes, however, the portion sizes were more suitable for just two people, and, what we were served was, at best, average. Tough lamb and, whilst the fish curry was good, only 3 or 4 small pieces of fish between us! Maybewe just picked the wrong option, but won't be rushing back!

I have visited CK twice previously and was blown away by the service and food. Some of the food selections were so creative and amazingly enjoyable. Not this time!

For a venue of this (supposed) calibre you do not expect the waiter to get the order wrong; he did! The service was poor, in that we were left waiting for such a long period that I was almost at the point of leaving. When the waiter arrived, it was normal, bordering frustrating. Whilst I can say food was tasty, the menu was simply uninspiring. Is this a function of COVID times? And the portion sizes, and I know this is subjective, but the quantity of rice was minuscule.

Our experience was no more, and perhaps less, than any other regular Indian restaurant (is this what you are now?) and the sparkle we had before has been extinguished.

I’m sad to say that my enthusiasm to return has almost all gone.

Absolutely superb two course lunch. We are great Vivek Singh fans and have eaten at Cinnamon Soho so our expectation level was high and we were not disappointed. The food is so much better than many run of the mill indian restaurants and to have to wait 25-30 mins to get the most superb biryani was a delight. Special thanks to Bosco who served us splendidly.

Found the inside noisy with loud music so sat outside which would have been lovely apart from a very loud drunk group sat close to us which definitely spoiled the ambience for my husband. Food was delicious.

Great food and lovely helpful staff.

Ambience was marked down not due to the restaurant but due to social distancing requirements it wasn't busy and normal buzz was missing. That said we loved our date night and will be back soon.

Called well ahead of our reservation to ask for a table inside as we were celebrating a birthday. After queuing for about 10 minutes outside(joining the same queue as those who didn't have bookings), nobody had recorded our request and we were seated outside and asked to wait while they found a table inside. The table inside was next to the kitchen - an awkward side table hardly fit for an important occasion let alone a dinner at an upmarket restaurant. We proceeded to wait for service and after 20minutes of waiting had to ask someone to take our order who already seemed quite overworked. One dish was forgotten completely yet still added to our bill. Food was average - quite watered down to appease british standards. Really disappointed, hoping in time that their management and service improves.

Delicious food, lovely looking restaurant, good service. Only problem I had was the table where we were seated kept getting a cold draught from the open doors. This would not be a problem in summer.

Our table was in centre of restaurant and in direct line of doors which were all open, it was freezing. We were moved to a slightly better position but still cold. Food was nice, the only thing exceptional was the peshweery naan. It was over priced and wouldn’t be rushing back. But glad we tried it.

When I dined, I was the only customer in the restaurant. Then a group of customers came, and they were seated right next to me. It's a big restaurant. Why do you have to seat them so close to me? The restaurant was EMPTY. I wish to maintain social distancing as much as possible.

This is the second time this happened to me, in two weeks.

Unfortunately it was very cold in the restaurant, which made the experience less enjoyable. The food was a little bland but most frustratingly the waiting staff seemed to not want to acknowledge or talk to my wife. It was a very old fashioned approach and she left feeling offended, particularly when they assumed it would be me paying and not her.
