We've had some really nice takeaways from Zaraa but unfortunately the one we had tonight was awful! My chicken tikka masala was extremely spicy and I do not like really spicy food which is why I always go for chicken tikka as its mild ....The chicken was also very chewy and the onion bhaji was extremely dry. Very disappointing!More

I love Indian food and this is the best I had in a long time. We ordered a take away and were really impressed with the quality. Everything was delivered at the right temperature and really fresh. You can tell the salads were freshly chopped...and curries were freshly cooked as vegetables still had crunch. Mango curry was amazing, so was Jalfrezi. Overall really pleased with this place and will for sure be ordering again.More

Wow! First time ordering and it wont be the last. I had a fish bhuna curry which was nothing short of Devine! My partner and I shared various items all of which were delicious! Bicester is graced with so many good indian restaurants and the...food in here is possibly the tastiest I have had ! Thank you Zaara. We will see you soon. Not to be missed compliments to the chef !More

We have somehow missed Zaara as an Indian takeaway option for quite some time. Finally, a month ago, we have had a look at their website and realised we've been missing something special! It turn out that Zaara offers many exciting vegetarian dishes: chickpea curries,...dalls, spinach, aubergine, paneer, etc. It's not the usual "replace chicken with vegetables" stuff, it's a proper selection of delicious options (each can come either as a main or as a side). Add to that the very yummy classics like naans (great choice of these), poppadoms, awesome starters like onion bhaji, and you're in for a feast. Very nice and friendly staff complete the excellent picture. Wholeheartedly recommended!More

Visited for the first time this week. Highly recommend as the food and service both superb! Big smiles upon arrival and nothing too much! Will definitely be returning 😊

Tried most curry houses in Bicester this one is by far the best. Vegetarian options are really good too

We hadn’t been to Zara for 18 months but wanted to go for my birthday - we didn’t realise it had changed hands. The pickles were very different, interesting and tasty. The food was excellent and fresh, my mushroom dish was freshly chopped and the...daal was the best I have ever tasted. The guys said their mixed tandoori grill was excellent. The service was slightly slow especially getting the drinks. They weren’t busy (which is surprising) but I don’t know what it would be like if they were. Will be returning soon.More

We chose this restaurant after seeing it during a walk round earlier in the day and what a fab choice! We had the poppadoms and pickle tray as our starters, simple but tasty. Our main courses were chicken tikka masala, chicken dopiaza, mixed meat jalfrezi...and I had a chef special with chicken, mushrooms and aubergines. The aubergines were incredible, cooked to perfection. All 4 dishes were plentiful and the sauces were thick and seasoned really well. The pilau rice was presented well and there was plenty of it. There were plenty of Bombay potatoes and again exceeded expectations. Definitely worth a visit.More

Hey, thanks for the question - we don't directly on site as we're in the market square, but there are many options for parking locally. The nearest and probably best option is Sainsbury's, which offers hours of free parking... More
