Ordered a takeaway chicken korma via Deliveroo and it was such a fresh taste - I could actually taste the coconut and almonds, and not heavy at all. The poppadoms were super crispy too. I can't wait to try the veggie curries I also ordered...More

We had a lovely meal at Malikas, the food was terrific, and the service was exceptional. Even though the decor is modern in appearance, Malikas has the feel of a traditional British Indian restaurant and all the better for it. Highly recommended.

This place had absolutely amazing food. Just the right level of spice, a variety of flavours, good size dishes, and incredibly friendly service. We stopped by before a concert and it is definitely worth taking a cab here for £5! We will be back!

This was my second time at Malikas and they didn't disappoint. Food was excellent and arrived within good time. Shads provided excellent service and made us feel very welcome. Will always be my number one place for food in Oxford whenever I visit.

We use to like this place until one of these days when we came back after few months. Food was not great although expensive, and meat was .... sparse in the curry, lets say. Also, not happy with service. Huge disappointment.
