“Dreadful food, cold and tasteless”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Cold meat in a hot sauce - obviously microwaved, and incredibly dry meat, reminiscent of the precooked meat you can buy for sandwiches. Not particularly tasty either.

No better than Jamals used to be, just more expensive.

“Curry in a Hurry and GREAT value....The 5 - 7 Special is excellent value for money!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

We travelled by canal to Oxford with four children in tow and wanted something close by that was affordable (we all love curry). Arzoo was the closest to us so we gave it a go and we were very happy with what we found. We ate early so were able to take advantage of the Happy Hour special (2 hours really), meaning that we could all have a popadom, pickles, main course, side dish and a choice of rice or naan for only £9.99 each. The food was really good and there was plenty of it! We could choose almost anything on the menu so there was a good choice available, and we all tried something different and shared everything. We all had a couple of drinks each and the bill was only £80. If we visit Oxford again, we will visit Arzoo at the same time.

“hopeless waiters, food poor,”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

Awful experience. Waiters could not understand English but were quite accomplished at overcharging so watch your bill. At over £30 per head, including a poor wine, hardly value for money. Fortunately many other good restaurants nearby. Gave it a try but never again.

“What's in the box?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

We had a takeaway from Arzoo last night. About 16 cartons of food arrived, all with an undecipherable scrawl on the lids so we had no way of working out which curry was which!
Overall the food wasn't brilliant. The Lamb Pista Badami which is supposed to be 'Succulent pieces of lamb simmered in a mild rich sauce with ground cashew nuts garnished with pistachio nuts' was actually some chewy bits of meat in a pale sauce with chunks of nut and strawberries on top. Not nice!

“Not worth the visit”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

Rowdy and not a pleasant experience. Food bland and service poor. Wish I had gone elsewhere. Such a shame the Bombay has gone.
