Nepalese restaurant (and takeaway) in the Donnington Arms pub. Your reviewer was very lucky to get a table on Friday night, as this is some of the nicest food in Oxford, and the 40 seats were all taken for the whole time we were there. The menu is a little confusing, with an "Introductory Offer" set menu with no description of the items, some of which are not to be found elsewhere on the menu, but since everything was delicious, it didn't really matter. It's probably worth mentioning that the dishes with names we recognised from Indian restaurants were hotter in spice than the dishes that (I guess) are more genuinely Nepalese. The Donnington Arms is still open as a pub in one half of the building.
