One review of “Jee Saheb”

    Kelly Gavaghan

    25th January 2017

    It’s safe to say that Friday night has become ‘curry night’ for the good people of the UK. So, on a clement evening in early September, my partner and I headed down to Summertown to seek out the nations favourite dishes.

    What we ate: Starters: 4 x Poppadum with condiments – £4.00, Badami Bater – £5.25, Lamb Chops – £5.25. Mains: Roop Chanda – £10.95, Chicken Tikka Balti – £8.95. Sides: Bhaigon Bhaji – £3.95, Bombay Potatoes – £3.95, Garlic Naan – £3.25. TOTAL – £42.25

    And how was it? My Badami Bater starter translates as quail rubbed in lemon and ground pistachio, almond and cashew and is cooked in the tandoor. It was tangy, light and made a pleasant change. Roop Chanda was another enjoyable dish of whole Bengali fish (Pomfret), fried and spiced with red chillies, lemon juice and fresh herbs.

    My partners Chicken Tikka Balti was stunning! Tamarind has a lip smacking tartness which really shone through in the sauce. It was THE standout dish of the entire meal and we told the owner so! The Balti was served with, by far and away one of the best Naan breads that we have ever eaten! Delicately flavoured with garlic, light and fluffy on top with a thin crusty bottom it was cooked perfectly.

    The service and ambience: Jee Saheb translates as ‘Yes Sir!’ which suggests that the service here is good. It is! Attentive, polite staff looked after us well throughout the evening. We arrived at 7pm and by 8pm Jee Saheb was full and had a nice, buzzy atmosphere.

    What you should know… North Parade Avenue is a gorgeous narrow street, reminiscent of The Brighton Laines with its colourful buildings and hanging baskets. Free parking is on Winchester Street and is a minute’s walk from the restaurant.

    Jee Saheb is undergoing redecoration. Upstairs the new décor is clean and contemporary and we are told by the owner that downstairs will be finished soon. There is no wheelchair access to the downstairs toilets and no baby changing facilities.

    We recommend: Chicken Balti, Garlic Naan and also the Bhaigon Bhaji which is aubergine cooked in ginger, green chillies, onion and tomato. All very good indeed. Worth looking at the Chefs Recommendations for dishes that buck the trend of most Indian Restaurants menu’s.

    Would we go back? Yes – For the Balti and Naan!
