One review of “Aziz at The Chequers”

    Colin Rosser

    20th January 2017

    It was a beautiful evening in May when Sue and I went to the new Aziz that has been recently opened at The Chequers in Headington Quarry.

    This is the first of the Aziz’s franchises, since their move from the Cowley Road where they have been for the last 30 years. Now in the new location there is ample parking and a lovely garden that can provide any number of covers over and above the present 50 that are available in the main restaurant.

    Aziz has arrived in Headington Quarry like a breath of fresh air and is accompanied by the delightful Shultana Shirin who is running the restaurant for him.

    The Aziz brand is well known to most of you and our visit to the new establishment did not disappoint.

    When we arrived there was a real buzz to the atmosphere and almost all the tables were taken. Fortunately Shirin had reserved a spot for us although we were nearly tempted to take a table in the garden. The sun however was beginning to go down and we are not a s hardy as we were!

    The service was prompt and discreet as always and we immediately had a plate of papadums together with a mixture of pickles, including mango chutney which is my favourite.

    Sue had a glass of the Dea del Mare Pinot Grigio Blush from Italy and I had a pint of the Indian Cobra Beer.

    To start with we both had lamb, Sue chose the Bahari Gosht Chops, lamb chops marinated and cooked in the clay oven and I had the Gosht Tikka which were marinated pieces of lamb similarly cooked.

    For mains, Sue was attracted to the Hash Malai which was duck breast with coconut milk and a touch of medium mustard. I went for the Murgh Kaliya, recommended by Shirin, which was chicken with black pepper in a medium creamy sauce.

    We had Peshwari Nan Bread, Pilau Rice and Sak Aloo (Spinach with Potaoes) to accompany the main meal.

    Talk about a banquet, the portions are very generous but both of us commented on how delicate the meats were and how everything was cooked to perfection.

    We are not great dessert eaters so we passed on that and finished with black coffee.

    All in all it was a very pleasant experience and for the future Aziz and Shirin will be producing a completely new menu by the beginning of June.

    So we are in for a treat, especially with the better weather coming and the prospect of dining in the delightful gardens…
