Excellent Persian food served in an updated historic building. I have not had a bad meal at this restaurant. They specialize in middle Eastern food such as kabobs, humus, and lamb, but also do a great job with hamburgers and steak.

Cozy restaurant in the heart of quaint old Newburgh with a slightly boho feel. Original and fresh Middle-East-meets-Mediterranean menu. Every meal has been perfect. Prices are extremely reasonable.Thank goodness for Arazu! It's a little gem in the sea of franchise steak, Tex-Mex and chicken fingers/burger joints that abound. And it's nice for al fresco dining 3 out of 4 seasons.... More

the bartender did not know how to mix drinks. (a gin on the rocks calls for gin, not tequila) we had a party of 8, and the food was served over a 20 minute time period. the food served first was room temp by the time all the items were served.

Met family there and we all really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Good service, good menu, and good food! I had the special of Jambalaya which was excellent and enough to take home 1/2 for lunch. Others had gyros, pork sandwich, salads, and tandori chicken - all of which got raves. Definitely coming back again.

This restaurant allows the diner to sit outside on a beautiful patio when the weather is nice. If the weather is not nice, a cozy atmosphere awaits you. Favorite entrees are beef kabob, chicken kabob, gyros, lamb chops and a special slaw. Craft beers and great wines are readily available. A reservation is a must. Personally, we like the bar... More

This establishment offers fine dinning at a reasonable price. Food offered is prepared very well and is attractive to the eye and pallet. Wonderful night out for a different meal.

Everything they offer here has such great flavor! If you aren't sure if you want to try anything too different from the typical Evansville food, at least try the Gyro. It could be your gateway food for this place.

Cafe Arazu serves excellent Mediterranean dishes such as kabobs, Tabollah, lamb chops, and hand made desserts. Owners Ben and Jenny can be seen most nights helping making your meal and experience be the best. Jenny makes most of the delicious desserts. The cafe is cozy, with lots of old country ambiance and a wonderful bar to eat in. The sides... More

Cafe Arazu is a perfect place for casual goumet dining. Lovely Mediterranean fare in a cozy atmosphere. Tasty, yummie, scruptious! Patio dining is is quite pleasant in the Spring and Fall. Nice place to take a date or gather with friends and family!
