“Great atmosphere and tasty food”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Went here on a recommendation and was not disappointed. This is a very busy restaurant and very attentive staff and waiters. We had booked ahead and would suggest this is essential as there were a number of people waiting having arrived on the off chance. The food is good and tasty, I don't say this lightly when reviewing Indian food as I have often been disappointed. Price was very reasonable as well. There is better, lets be clear, but as a combination of atmosphere, food, price and good feeling this is very good.

“In a city with lots of competition for good Indian cuisine, Aziz stands up.”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We liked this place-friendly service and nice decor. The food was tasty and plentiful. The lamb chop starters could have been warmer, but this was one fault amongst the plusses, which included free vegetable side dish, very tasty prawn dansak and excellent naan bread.Yes, there is lots of competition these days, but with the good food and friendly service, this stands up well. I would go again.

“Victim of its own success”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

A few years ago Aziz deserved its reputation as THE Indian restaurant out of so many on the Cowley Road. It still has a good atmosphere, lovely decor and a reasonable menu - but you can now find much better, cheaper, interesting food a few steps up the road. Other restaurants have overtaken Aziz in terms of authenticity of ingredients, friendly service and value for money.

“Bad Food”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Didn't like the quality and taste of food. Dicey oil...tried the buffet. Not even close to authentic Indian taste.

“Lovely”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Went with a Groupon voucher last night - four people, four starters, four mains, two sides, two rice dishes and four desserts all for £50. Lovely service, great food, incredible value for money (even without the voucher it would still have been very reasonable for the amount of food we were being served) - we left the restaurant thoroughly stuffed and thoroughly satisfied. Definitely coming again!
