Ive been going to the Arooje more or less since it opened and have never had a bad meal yet. The waiters are very helpful and polite and in my experience everything is hot and well cooked, the acid test being no Deli belly next day! Go at tea time and theres a "early bird" menu which is even better value. If you like your food with a kick check out there Chicken chilli balti. It has a great flavour and never fails to deliver in the heat department.
The weekends can get busy as you would imagine but after 8pm mid week genarally its a bit quiter and more relaxed.

We had the usual popadoms and pickle tray... Very nice. Then starters of fish pakora and chicken tikka which were very tasty too. when we When we were half way through our main courses of chicken & prawn balti & a Chicken tikka dopiaza a cockroach showed up !! It was scampering across the windowsill next to me and then had a jog across the wall right next to our table, I pointed the cockroach out to a waiter and he quickly squished it in a serviette then went to close the window, but it was already shut ! We did intend having a couple of desserts afterwards but we'd just lost our appetites. So to sum up.... The food was service was reasonable but we won't be rushing back I'm afraid :0(

We used to eat here on a regular basis, until we had good reason to complain about the buffet items all being cold. They offered to warm food in microwave. We obviously declined and decided to leave. We did offer to pay for the food we had eaten, ie poppadom and pickld tray. They gave us a bill for £27. We refused to pay this and were met with aggression so threatened to call police. Thew then told us to leave and not go back.
As if we would !!!!

Avoid this place

The food was surprisingly tasty for a takeout. We had the balti chicken and lamb offer for 2. The chicken I upgraded to tikka, although very red indeed and slightly over salty was tender and complimented by the array of tasty starters especially the veg mix and sundries. The lamb was very oily and not the best cut of lamb, very fatty and not generally a great dish, flavoursome yet avoidable. All round great for the area but there are so many great Indians out there in the uk, for a local not bad at all but if we were talking nationwide it would be not great.
