Chinese and East Asian
148 London Road, Headington, Oxford, OX3 9ED
Authenticity and experimentation are the buzzwords in the Asian Mama kitchen – the chefs strive to create dishes that are traditional with a twist, made with classic techniques such as stir-frying and steaming in order to retain the natural colours, nutrients and flavours of the fresh, quality ingredients. A convenient takeaway service is available, but it is highly recommended that you eat in and enjoy the full Asian Mama experience. The front-of-house team is professional and friendly, and will be happy to offer advice if you’re finding it tricky to choose. The salt and pepper spare ribs and chicken satay skewers are top meaty starters, while the mini prawn bites and salt and pepper squid are sure to satisfy seafood fans. Continue with tender duck with ginger and spring onions, chicken in sweet and sour sauce, lamb in black bean sauce, or a delicious vegetarian option such as mushrooms in garlic and chilli. There are also several great-value set menus – perfect for couples or larger groups.
