First visit, arrived a bit early, made very welcome. Cocktails excellent. Food very good and presentation on slates was nice…..a tight fit on the small table!
Fantastic restaurant - the food was delicious, the staff lovely and the atmosphere perfect. We had a great evening. Highly recommened.
Great atmosphere and loved the cocktails and vegetarian food.
Great to see Spiced Roots up and running once again! We had a delicious supper there. Many thanks!
Coming from London , tried calling day before numerous times no answer and when got stuck in traffic in Oxford to say we was going to be late rang numerous times no answer coming from far and wide it hard because of the £15 charge and you don’t want to loose you spot
The overall service and food was next to none as was recommended by a family friend
Would I go again? Yes would I recommend it to friends and family yes
Should spice roots come to London 💯
Thanks again and see you all soon
One love big robs and crew ❤️
Lovely authentic Caribbean food and great friendly service! Not to forget the rum punches!
Loved it, nice having the owners serving and circulating among guests to see how the food is. As a Trinidadian, thumbs up to the roti, doubles and choka. Nice to be able to take my half-British family to a good West Indian meal in a friendly atmosphere. Would definitely go again next time I'm in Oxford, and also recommend if you're after nice well-made West Indian food.
Splendid food, the best Caribbean food in town! Definitely a must when visiting Oxford :)
Fantastic cocktails that are carefully designed to complement food. Excellent taste experience and great laid back service.
Great Caribbean atmosphere and good authentic and well priced food. Loved the bar.
My favourite restaurant in Oxford. Excellent food and great rum cocktails!
Really amazing and the staff were really nice and professional. I would definitely go back again.
Food was banging as always 10/10 will always recommend for Caribbean food.
Amazing. First time having genuine Caribbean food and it won’t be the last. Staff were helpful and attentive. Can’t wait to come back to Oxford to have again.
First time visiting Spiced Roots , and we will definitely be back . My husband is still talking about the Trinidad Sour cocktail he had . Food was amazing . Highly recommend.
Delicious, delicious, delicious! Will be back definitely
Couldn’t fault it, the rum collection is on point and the food was delicious
Good ambience, great staff, nice dishes, serious rum punches
An amazing atmosphere with such lovely people who know what they are talking about with the ingredients of their food and drinks. The food is so tasty; the most authentic and inspiring Caribbean restaurant we have been to in the UK.
If you go there any time soon, please go and try the clarified pineapple and papaya milk punch, it is the smoothest drink you’ll have (don’t be put off by the word milk!). Thank you to everyone at Spiced Roots!
Cosy restaurant with friendly and accommodating staff, and exceptional food! Service a little slower than I'm used to, not sure if they were staffed. Overall I would definitely visit again.
Staff very helpful with allergies and help with menu. Excellent authentic Caribbean dishes and Caribbean drinks. enjoyed a Carib beer, Mauby & Old Fashioned Rum and Goat Curry, brilliant. My wife is a Trini and was impressed with it all. Parked nearly by in St Clements Car Park. Definitely recommend!
Fantastic food that is hearty and authentic. The oxtail stew is particularly amazing! My one negative was that we were sort of rushed off our table as the bookings are back to back and I think the next table had been booked a tad too early.
Amazing flavours and the drinks were great too!
Delightful food and atmosphere. My partner had the Jerk Lamb and said it was the best meal he’d ever had!! I had the Green PawPaw Curry which was so full of flavour. Great and friendly service, never left waiting and they were really welcoming. Really recommend for a fantastic flavourful dinner (and don’t forget to order the rum punch !!)
Great food, drink, music and lovely people, favourite place in Oxford.
Really friendly, enthusiastic and helpful staff.
Great relaxed vibe
Can’t wait to have the chance to come again
Always impressed with Spiced Roots and my recent visit was no exception, I'm sure it's got even better since the last time I was there.
They've nailed the food (Oxtail was amazing) and have the best authentic and creative cocktail menu in oxford; Mauby Old Fashioned is a must, Classic Rum Punch and the El Presendente were perfect. It's a true representation of what the Caribbean has to offer.
Very nice- lovely people serving- just a tad overpriced.
Fantastic place, very chill! Service and quality of food amazing. Really relaxed and easy atmosphere.
Amazing food, amazing service, amazing cocktails! Just amazing all round
Delicious vegan options, with real style and imagination. Great atmosphere - fun and lively, but easy to chat and relax. We love it here!
We had a great meal at Spiced Roots on a Saturday night, the restaurant was full but still comfortable, we had booked and this is probably recommended. Service is laid back but attentive, the food all came out quickly. each dish we tried was absolutely delicious, piping hot and very generous portions beautifully presented. The meat in both the jerk chicken and jerk lamb was so tender it literally fell apart. We will be back, highly recommend!
Great find. Authentic, friendly and really tasty food. Highly recommend
Excellent food, very friendly and efficient service - will definitely book again
Food was excellent, very well presented. Very friendly and welcoming. Cocktails although £10 each were very good. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Great food and drink. Cocktails a little on the expensive side but everything was delicious
Superb service from all the staff. A real family feeling, very friendly.
The food was top quality and spiced just right.
The home made ginger beer went down a treat along with the Devine spicy rum cake and ice cream.
The owners were very friendly and stopped by for a chat. I am from the Caribbean and this was the best tasting food I’ve had. A really good reminder of home, but with a new twist. The grilled octopus with mango chow was outstanding. We were offered a free drink and dessert, but I paid for them because I wanted to support this excellent Restuarant. Thank you for the experience Sophie and partner. As an extra surprise, I found a cookbook published by my High School on their bookshelf. A wonderful surprise !
Mediocre & overpriced. Has a good reputation as it doesn't have local competition. It's very small, more of a bar with tables than a restaurant
Incredible dishes! We're vegetarian and the 3 mains on offer for us all looked really great and varied. Really different flavours and all delicious and fresh.
Only thing we found was the place was packed in and small (not necessarily anyone's fault) and we were right by a loud speaker but that honestly didn't matter when the food was so yummy.
