Restaurant Reviews
Jee Saheb

Fancy an Indian restaurant with a difference? Well look no further than Jee Saheb for your breath of fresh (aromatic) air.

The sleek, clean and modern décor immediately sets Jee Saheb apart from your more traditional Asian restaurant. Bright and airy, it’s a sign you’re in for a new dining experience.

We were warmly greeted by manager Wayas and his friendly staff who seated us next to the huge window allowing us to enjoy the quaint outlook of ‘the village’ or North Parade Avenue as it’s officially called. A charming little street in north Oxford, North Parade is almost hidden off the Banbury road and is home to a lovely selection of local businesses. Jee Saheb has been firmly established in the area for over 9 year and is obviously a local dining favourite.

As we perused the menu we enjoyed a new flavour of lightly spiced papadoms and a selection of chutneys. The menu offers a wide variety of classic and creative dishes from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. As well as all the usual favourites, we were struck by the tempting Chef recommendations which had some really interesting flavour combinations.

The staff were so knowledgeable of the menu and encouraged us to try a brand new starter that the chef recently designed for a private party to rave reviews. The bel puri was an absolute delight, small balls made with a light crispy coating of semolina and rice flour and filled with a delicious delicately spiced shredded chicken. Look out for it on the new menu coming soon!

Inspired by the success of the delicious starter we followed further recommendations to order our mains of Lamb Satkora cooked in a fruit of the same name and Chicken Handi Lazeez with coriander, chillies and cardamom. Once again we were overwhelmed with the lightness and freshness of the dishes, which didn’t leave you feeling overstuffed where many of the typical heavy cream-based curries can. Meat was tender and succulent and the Satkora was zingy with the Bengali lemon fruit which cleansed the palette and complimented the many infused spices.

There is no way I would usually consider a dessert as I am usually so full I have to be rolled out the door! But our delicious meal was just light enough to leave a little space for us to indulge in a traditional Chai tea and soak up the relaxing atmosphere.

My dining partner and I were thoroughly impressed with the refreshing choice of dishes and are already planning our next trip with friends to try out some more.

Bel Puri £1.75 Tandoori Chicken, £4.25, Lamb Satkora £8.95, Chicken Handi Lazeez, £9.95. Pilau Rice £2.95, Chapati £1.75.
