“Need to Hire a Cook Who Can Read”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

I generally like the food and have ordered takeout through Delivery Express from the Government Street location at least once a week for the past several years but I've reached the point where I can't overlook the terrible service any longer. My needs are pretty simple: I want my salad in a container separate from the hot items. I always specify this when ordering even though it's a pretty basic tenet of food preparation that you don't mix hot and cold items, especially in a to-go container. Monday's order arrived with the salad not only in the same container, but serving as a bed for the hot food, totally covered with chicken schwarma. I'll be taking my business to Serop's or Roman's from now on.

“Used to be better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Arzi's used to be my restaurant of choice. Unfortunately, the place has been going down and the food is not as good as it used to be...
The place could use some TLC. The building is old and looks dirty. Not very appetizing...

“Arzi's is old time Baton Rouge Mediterranean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Arzi's has lost something that it had back in the day. Food just does not seem the same quality as it was a number of years ago.

“Great for lunch or dinner.”

The gyro is the best and the portions are large. Take your appetite to Arzi's and you will not be disappointed.
