Jee Saheb
oxfordshire
 
 

The Jee Saheb is situated in North Parade, Jericho in what is a very special part of Oxford. Parking is very much down to luck but we were lucky and parked nearby.

The décor of the restaurant is refreshing and different to the majority of Indian restaurants. The floors are wooden and the walls are white which really adds to the freshness of the place. It is also well lit, something some restaurants fail to do, but not so that the atmosphere is lost. There are none of the predictable wall colourings that are commonly seen in Indian restaurants.

We were seated immediately on entering the restaurant, the welcome from the drinks waiter and the food waiter was warm and friendly. The drinks arrived immediately. We had different waiters for the food than the drinks which was a nice touch. The attentiveness of the waiters was exceptional throughout - and it was clear this was to all diners, not just us. The light and airy decor brought all attention back to the food which was very effective. Rather than focussing on a “busy” restaurant, you could focus on the food.

The range of food and drinks was extensive and the chef's recommended menu was refreshingly different.

The food itself was served with attention and full description of all the dishes by the waiters. We chose dishes we had not tries before and were pleasantly surprised. The starters of lamb chops and prawn pathia puri were very tasty and well presented. The puri was enormous but light to eat.

Our main courses were from the chef’s recommended menu and were very good – again the size of the portions were generous.

The meal was delicious, the food was so fresh and we could taste the different spices coming through. It certainly tasted like Indian home cooking and not the generic food you sometimes come across in restaurants.

The atmosphere in the Jee Saheb  is great - the clientele is diverse and comprises all age groups and backgrounds which makes it vibrant and engaging.

It seemed to be a local restaurant for lots of people – not only those inside but also judging by the amount of people who waved as they walked past.
