Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

From start to finish, this restaurant is 5 stars! Came here with my partner for my birthday meal. Poppadoms to start with chicken tikka masala as a main. Easily one of the best chicken tikka masalas I have ever had!! Service was 6 stars- all...staff very welcoming, kind and helpful with the menu! Will definitely be returning next time we’re in Oxford!!More

Lovely evening at Curry Adda. Attentive staff and delicious food - really recommend the chicken korai. The entrance to the restaurant is slightly confusing, but don’t be put off - there is a lovely atmosphere inside and well worth getting everything going with the bottomless...poppadomsMore

Went for our 3rd takeaway. Collecting so we were expecting 20%discount. No discount! And no order ready. Not happy, staff unhelpful. Very sad as the last two had been very good and I had recommended them to friends. I will be letting them know about...my recent experience.More

Fantastic, authentic Indian food. Generous portions and good value (the bottomless poppadoms are brilliant). We have been going to this chef’s restaurants (previously called “Aziz”) for years and the food has just been getting better and better.

Zero stars for Zero service. I can’t believe it! This weekend I walked out of Curry Adda after a stand-up argument with Raz, the manager. We are regulars – we have a take-away or eat in almost every week – perhaps 40 times a year....So you can see we like the restaurant. So why an argument? My wife likes very mild food and until 3 weeks ago there wasn’t a problem. However, last weekend (and to a degree the previous two weekends) the Butter Chicken and the Saag Aloo were too spicy-hot for her to eat. I rang the restaurant and told them and said we could discuss it next time we came in. She ate something else and we binned the Butter Chicken – I don’t eat creamy. When we arrived on Saturday I explained this to Raz, the manager, and said we wanted to taste tonight’s dishes before we took them away. He was most uncooperative and said there was no way the Butter Chicken could have been too spicy as he had seen it prepared and also nobody had complained about the Saag Aloo curry. When I attempted to say something he raised his voice and constantly talked me down and would not let me speak – reiterating that the problem was not with the food but with us. Two or three times I asked if he would let me have a chance to explain and he eventually did so. However he was obstinately adamant that the only problem was us. Bear in mind that we were not looking for a refund or anything like that - just a little sympathy and understanding. Not the confrontation which should never have happened. We left. Very disappointed as we have followed Aziz for some 40 years - c'est la vieMore

This restaurant does good quality curry and it is very well priced. The staff are always really helpful. Tip - if you order a take away they usually deliver faster than the estimate.

A good replacement for ABC, offering a nicer range of curries and more pleasant seasoning. Portions were good, the beef succulent, and the naan crisp in the middle but soft on the edge.

We hadn't been for a few months so decided on a revisit. The poppadoms were great and mains delicious, however the service was unattentive. We asked to order wine twice and never received any after waiting too long we cancelled the wine order and stuck...with water. Food 5*, Service 1* on this occasion.More

Gorgeous food, friendly welcome, and lovely quiet atmosphere — but most impressive of all was the custom masala chai, made with oat milk! What a wonderful find.

Don’t let the inauspicious entrance put you off - this is exactly what we have been craving in Headington. Tasty, quality, reasonably priced Indian fare that does exactly what it says on the tin.

As always, a fantastic meal. If you're bored with the usual bland Cowley Rd fare, it's definitely worth a short trip to Headington to this restaurant. Eaten here five or six times and never been disappointed. Fantastic food and friendly staff. Best Indian in Oxford.

Get the prawn dopiaza - incredible - can't belive someone can make prawns taste that good. The texture was incredible - goodness knows how they managed it. Good number of prawns as well. Service was great - very friendly. Popadums were replenished at no extra...cost. Just really impressive for a reasonable price. Looking forward to going back!More

Best Indian food in Headington! I arranged for a group of 27 to come for dinner and the manager, Fuad, was super accommodating and friendly. The food was scrumptious, portions were generous, and the staff were very attentive and they went above and beyond to...make us feel welcome. It was the perfect place for our gathering and we had a wonderful evening. I'm looking forward to returning!More
