Could be more Authentic Indian!!
We ordered food yesterday and have to say that we were not fully satisfied.. The naan were thick and at places looked under cooked..nPaneer Tikka masala was also not as Authentic as we expect in India. Also we felt salt was quiet less.nMaybe thats how it is preferred by the locals

True variety and flavours
Have been having curries from Mirabai, both take-away and at the restaurant, for a couple of years now. Always plenty of flavour and variety of spices, ensuring each dish is unique. Friendly service and good value for money for some of the tastiest, most consistently good curries I've ever had.

Consistent quality
Love the food! Always a family favourite. If I could make one suggestion, it would be nice to be able to order a small selection of sauces to accompany the poppadoms.

Very tasty but arrived pretty cold.
Delicious but I had to reheat the food on arrival - was too cold. Not sure why arrived cold as I live near the restaurant.

- Janet Hazelton

I've been using mirabai since it first opened, the gorgeous food has always been the same, great value for money hasn't change & the outstanding customer service from all the staff members! I've eaten in & got deliverys, the service is just as wonderful either way! If you havnt guessed I love this resturant & the staff! I would strongly recommend it!!
- Hannah Kent

On time
Delivered promptly. Good food. Naan a bit chewy, but perfect for soaking up all the juices!
- Richard

Good Curry!
Really enjoyed my curry, the only negative was the lamb wasn't tender enough. The online ordering service was great and the delivery driver was great
- Ashley Sims

Beautiful as always
Been using the Mirabai for years and never had any problems regarding food or service quality wether eating in or having a take out.
- richard clare

First time, won't be the last
I tried Mirabai last weekend as it was recommended by a friend of mine. They were quite busy so the delivery took a while, but it was worth waiting.
- Charlotte

Nice one
Spot on delivery, delicious chicken tikka and dansak. You made my night in!
- Mark

Very polite, great food!
This is my new local so was hoping for a good experience, and was not disappointed. Had 2 takeaways so far and plan to have many more!
- Tom Mylott

Good food, very friendly staff
full stop
- Tony

Not the best I've had, however...
Moderately priced for an Indian Restaurant. The staff are friendly and helpful. Also, the delivery was quick.
- Alex

Great local curry
Mirabai is my favourite local curry house and consistently delivers great food.
- Dan Fainman

another great meal
Thanks again!
- Adam

Just what I needed: a nice and spicy jalfrezi :)
- Brian

Not bad
I wouldn't say it is the best curry house around here, but it is definitely one of the better ones. The chicken korma was very nice, but the rest of the meal was just OK.
- Tom

Goof food
- Robert Danby

Great winter warmer
I loved the madras, will be back soon.
- Adam

Arrived on time and one of the best, delicious and filling meals I've had in a long time. Highly recommended...
- Mac Castro

Chicken Passanda and mushroom rice
Got an extra popadom and some sauce for free.
- Ben

great food, loved by our muslim frieneds
We tried 4 different dishes and loved hem all. Our sometimes critical daughter in law thought they were all excellent. We will use them again.They delivered when they said they would on a bust Friday night.
- arthur boylston

Nice meal at a good price that was prepared very quickly.
I live nearby but had never tried this restaurant (always tending to order from Cowley) so I gave it a go via the online ordering system. It was a lovely meal at a good price that was ready very quickly - I'll happily order from here again in the future.
- Richard King

Delicious food and excellent service
- Goldy Regi

Good food, delivered quick
Good food from Mirabai, that was full of flavour and spice
- Michael Dodd

- david fainman

my favourite curry house in Oxford
I'm a great fan of this curry house. My father even more so. When I moved home recently his main concern was that I hadn't moved too far from the Mirabai!
- Charlotte Dunford

First time
Overall the food tasted good, service was good

Quick service
My order arrived within 30 minutes. The food could have been a little warmer when it arrived, but I managed to get to plate fulls out of the portion and it was yummy....
- Ria Hipkiss

very pleased
great food, and quick service!
- Pille Pargmae

The best indian food you can get in Oxford
We have been going to this Indian restaurant for years and have always been very pleased. The food is delicious, authentic and you can taste the difference. No matter if you go for spicy or mild, there is a good variety of choices for everyone. The south indian chicken is beyond compare, as is the vindalloo. Our children love the milder dishes like paneer tikka. The atmosphere is very friendly. Recently we have tried the online order for the first time and everything went very smoothly. Food was ready in time and was hot and perfect. We can highly recommend the Mirabai. A, Schwab and A. Angebrandt, Oxford
- Alexander Angebrandt

Waaaaaay too much oil!!
The paneer tikka masala dish that I ordered had far more oil than is required to cook it. As a result, the bag that my food was delivered in was soaking wet and oily. Not only did the oil make the dish unhealthy, but also took away from the natural taste of the paneer. The next time, try to use just as much oil as is necessary to cook the dish. Y'all will be able to retain the taste and softness of the paneer better that way. I am incredibly disappointed with the quality of that dish. It tasted like chunks of rubber swimming in a pool of spicy oil.
- Maitreyi Gogate

Very happy
Very pleased with how quick end efficient the service was. Portions were perfect size and enjoyable
- Beth Gooda

Fast delivery
Great service, food excellent and hot. Delivery was faster than expected.

Review takeaway from Mirabai
Food was ready for collection at the specified time and very tasty. can't ask for more
- Alex Gould

My order
Was disappointed they forgot the garlic nann bread, but I rang and they said I'd get one on my next order with some poppodiums and I agreed that was ok..
- colene williams

delivered late

Overall very happy!
Turned up 15 minutes early which was really great, the food was tasty though a little greasy but the flavour made up for it! Great meal, very happy.
- Jamie Lambertstock

Very tasty
Everything we had was extremely tasty. It wasn't quite hot enough in terms of chilli and temperature but I always zap a takeaway in a microwave anyway as I like it piping hot and I will ask for more chilli next time. Overall though a very nice couple of curries.
- James Morris

My order
Very pleased with my order enjoyed our meal
- colene williams

good first visit

Decent first time experience
Nice food, decent portions
- Andy Parke

Tasty but missing items
We ordered quite a lot of food (which was all delicious), but unfortunately a couple of our items were not delivered. We rang them and to their credit they said they could either deliver it now or we could have the items for free with our next order. Overall very happy with their customer service.
- Fiona Herd

Fast delivery and Very Hot when delivered

Mirabai Curry House Oxford
I've eaten both in the restaurant and had the take-away and the food is very good! I had the vegetable balti, aloo sag and pilau rice and my boyfriend had the balti chicken jalfrezi with a peshwari nan. The only fault I would say is the price. The food is quite expensive which puts me off eating there more often. As a whole though, lovely restaurant that makes great food!
- Shannon Berry

Great food
- Sarah Ng

Papadoms were cold ans soft. Chapatis were not hot.Madras was good but other three were below average. Looked like someone had dropped the meet into a pre-prepared sauce.
- julie mcculloch

Fast delivery
Lots of food colouring chicken curry was orange veg curry was deep red and so runny rice portions very small won't be ordering again was quick to deliver
- Trina White

Slightly expensive
I really enjoyed the food and service from Mirabai, but it was quite expensive.
- James Stainton Gurung

Good food
Really fast delivery, food piping hot. Very good curry house !!!!
- Thomas Molloy

Very Good
Good food, had a bit of a wait when collecting, but food was fresh, which was good.
- Charles Chapman

Mirabai takeaway
Was slightly dubious about placing an indian takeaway order online before the restaurant even opened, but the order turned up on time with everything included. Very easy and would definitely order this way again.
- Julie Meikle

Good food consistently
A good menu, they deliver within the time they promise and occasionally a bit quicker. The standard of curries are great and I have a few favourites on the menu
- Matthew Fisher

no what I ordered...
Just to say that i did not receive exactly what I had order...the mint sauce was mkissing and i had order a chicken tika but was received a chicken tika masala...never mind, it was still good but ...
- anne bold

First timer review!
Great food, albeit 30 minutes earlier than expected!! The Mirabai is a firm fave regardless, and the meal was on point! The curriesonline facility is really useful and I look forward to seeing a few more local restaurants joining in!
- Jane Robinson

Excellent food, service and value for money
Ordered a takeaway from Mirabai for the first time last night. Easy to place order via website, delivery arrived even before allocated time, food was really delicious and good value for money. Will definitely be ordering from Mirabai again soon.
- Alexandra Daly

What more can ask for when a perfect serving of delicious, hot curry gets delivered to your doorstep? Good value for money. 8 on 10 for taste.
- Amar Ghaisas

Delicious food
Tried the service for the first time and absolutely satisfied. Food was awesome, delivery on time and really like the website. Will be ordering again this way!
- mike brojak

Just what we needed for a last minute, late Saturday night!
- Clare Cannon

Really lovely
Sppeddy and tasty!!
- Oorlagh Chapman

Excellent, professional service
Super service - delivery within 2 minutes of requested time, well packaged, piping hot and very tasty - we'll use this service again.
- Aileen French

Red prawn madras, red dahl, bright orange chicken korma - no need for food colouring guys!
- Jane Lambie

Tasty food, good service, generous curry portions though the naan and starters were maybe a bit small. Disappointing that the main vegetable in the vegetarian curry seemed to be big chunks of tomato.
- Rob Laban

Food good but service a little slow!
We always use this takeaway. Food good but we wait about 45-60 minutes.
- Lesley Milne

Fantastic food, prompt delivery and superb prices!
- Henry Viola

good food
- bob johnson

Good food, took a while to get here but it was a Friday night.
- Chris Chinn

Watery tikka massala
The lamb tikka massala I had was very watery - more so than any tikka massala I've ever had - and didn't taste very nice as a result. We also had a chicken pasanda which just didn't taste like a pasanda from past experience. Disappointing.
- Alex Powles

second time
Very prompt service, food very nice.
- Rich Barlow

F Butler 26/11/11
The service and delivery was ok,although slightly late.We were a little disappointed with the food.The curry was bland and the vegetable curry watery.Portion size was good but taste was the issue.I am not inclined to order from you again.
- frank butler

very tasty
food arrived on time, hot, and very tasty. Poppadums not cooked properly, but otherwise very nice.
- Rich Barlow

First time success
The ordering online service worked perfectly, ,y food wasa ready and waiting. Naan was a bit soft for me, but still tasty. My Lamb vinda was well cooked, with good meat, although not quite as hot as I like. Overall a good curry, and I will try again in the future although I havn't stopped looking for Oxford best curry house yet! :)
- Daniel Pooley

Mirabai Curry
I ordered the Rogan Josh lamb curry. Opting for something a little different from the speciality menu I was surprisingly impressed. It arrived quickly, with a smile at the door. Tasted great and was at just the right temperature.I would just say that altogether I thought it was a little over-priced :(
- Alex Hill

Not Impressed
Order for 7:30 arrived originally at 6:30 and had to ask for them to return at requested time as no guests were here ... When it came back at 7:45 it had clearly just been reheated and wasn't fresh at all. Very disappointed from somewhere which is usually exceptional.
- Zoran Vjestica

Good Food, Generous Portions
This was the first time we had used the Miribai in some time as we had previously being using a different take away, but we had recently had a series of problems with orders so had decided to try somewhere else. The food arrived piping hot well within the advised delivery time. We had several different dishes all of which were very tasty and enjoyed by all the family. Food was well presented and not greasy (as some indian is). Portion size was very generous compared to others we have ordered from, and I did struggle to finish mine (not usually an issue for me). Overall I was very pleased and would order from here again. My only one very very minor comment would be to ask that they label the main dishes a bit more clearly on the boxes.
- Pat Loughnane

Wouldn't recommend
Vegetable cocunut korma was far too sweet, you couldn't taste any other of the flavours.Onion Bhaji was so oily that there was no crunch whatsoeverFood generally far too oily
- Namir Shabibi

good food and great service
very tasey
- bob johnson

Very tasty, wish it was quicker!
Overall, the curries are delicious, full of flavor.My only issue is the hour wait for delivery... wish this was faster!Delivery man was very friendly though. Great food, good prices.
- Ellin Coetzee

very tasty
nice food, good value.
- Fiona Herd

lamb briyani
food was delicious but could have been more spicier and bigger portion of meat.thank you
- Vemal Arasan

Good value and good food
Just a first attempt, with the Chef's choice (which by the way should come with just a little description in case you like something and you want to order it again)... Everything was very good and plentiful. We ordered at 19:15 on a Saturday night and got the food around 8:15. We'll try again...
- Marco Pontecorvi

Food delivered on time with smart driver and transported in effective heat bag ensuring food was piping hot.Food excellent with good portion sizes and meat dishes contained high quanity of meat.
- Adam Green

Again food was very good, and delivered early. Will use again.
- Brian Turner

Very good food, delivered early.
- Brian Turner

Very tasty food, available for collection very quickly and for a reasonable price.
- Fiona Herd

Would not allow us to pick up our order!
We tried to order using the McCoys offer. Unfortunately we were told that we could only eat in, this was despite the offer explicitly stating that you could pick up your delivery from the shop. Very disappointing as their menu sounded delicious.
- Yasmin

Pretty decent
We ordered one item with a chilli sign next to it and one without. The one without was not hot at all, the one with was EXTREMELY hot - maybe a scale of chillis would be better. Other than that the food was very tasty and they delivered within the expected time.
- Clare Cannon

Good stuff
Took a while to make my order but now I'm registered it should be pain free
- Adam Muir

Good quality food
I've ordered from Mirabai a few times now and have always found it to be good value. The food is delicious and has only once taken longer than expected to arrived.
- Ben Repton

Mirabi headington
Great food
- Lesley Milne

Good food, adequate delivery time
I've had deliveries from Mirabai before that have taken less time to arrive, but the 45 minutes this took wasn't too bad. The food was very nice though, so I'll definitely order from them again.
- Matthew Arthington

Mirabai is a Must!! A
The Mirabai's food was fantastic and great value, as ever, the delivery was great and the 'Curries Online' website is a brilliant way to find the best in your local area, great to be able to read reviews before you try out the cuisine! Full marks all-round!! Thank you to the Mirabai and Curries Online.
- Elliott Ing

Just love Mirabai
I love the quality and taste of the food from Mirabai ....even though i ordered a take away the food was pipping hot once i got it home on my plate , and it looked just like it would as if i had just ordered it in the resturant ...the flavours are exceptional and always good quality ....Can not wait till next time .....
- Patrick Mclernon

Life saver!!
Since my oven was not working, we ordered from Mirabai, my neighbourhood Indian restaurant. The food was wonderful -- delivered on time and piping hot.
- Elaine Hyams

food very good
good all round food ,taste,and delivery thank you
- bob johnson

very good
I had one of the house special curries and it was most enjoyable. I would definitely get take out from this restaurant again in the future.
- Kieran Hogarth

Overall very nice
I ordered online: the delivery was within 45 minutes and food was hot when it arrived. The delivery man was also very friendly. The chicken mira bahar tasted good but had a watery consistency and was very oily. The lamb katmandu delicacies was very nice, and worked well with naan. The naan and rice were pretty standard and I have no complaints. I would happily order from them again.
- Bidemi Kuforiji

I had just arrived from a transatlantic flight, to discover I had no working phone in my house. Being able to order online was a real life saver. And the food was delicious and was delivered promptly.
- Elaine Hyams

Excellent food, but delivered later than expected
Excellent food, but delivered later than expected
- Jen Truby

very good order
My meal was perfect and delivered at the time i asked and good value.Will use again.
- Kate Clarke

Easy to order, good food
Excellent service, website works well. Food was very good, apart from the butter chicken which was average - barely spicy at all. Chicken was well cooked though.
- Amy Davis-Poynter

Salmon tasted like stones
Salmon tasted like stones, wondering how they cooked it.I had taste card, which should be 50% off, but they only deducted ?3.5 for the nann bread out of my ?18 spending- outrageous!!
- Jenny Lee

Incorrect Order
The only thing wrong was the naan bread. They gave a plain, when a peshwari was ordered.
- Ben Silvey

Very good experience, will order again
Food was really good and was delivered even a little prior to promised time, which was much appreciated.
- Gretta Fenner

Good as always
Enjoyed the food, in particular the naan!
- Jen Truby

Fantastic meal, excellent service, and great value for money. Will definately order again.
- Linda Colbourne

First experience of ordering online
I have been to the actual Mirabai restaurant before and liked it, so decided to order online. Everything was as expected and arrived on time. Really easy experience. We ordered the mushroom bhuna and the roast aubergine masala and both were brilliant!
- Hannah Halford

Very good curry
Ordered from here many times before and as usual was a very good curry.
- James Whitworth

First Mirabai order
Good food and great online ordering system
- Sivan Bokobza

Stunning Curry!
Our delivery was bang on time, the curry was fantastic. the naans however were a bit soggy but overall brilliant food
- Emma Punnett

First Mirabai Curry
Very easy ordering over the internet. Food arrived when they said it would. However it was a little cool, and required heating. Slightly small portions, but overall very tasty.
- Kris Till

Bit of a mess
Ordered online @ 19:20 on a Monday night - takeaway took 1 hr 10 to arrive. Unfortunately it was not my order. The driver took it back and then didn't reappear for another half an hour ~ 21:00(said they had to re-cook it fresh). The driver was very apologetic and had included some poppadoms and a bottle of cobra for the hassle.Overall the food was ok. The naan was undercooked some of the dough was still soggy and not cooked. The Chicken chaat starter was pretty bland but the chicken tikka jalfreizi was very good.
- David Harvey

first try

- Maya Gurevich

Pot luck lottery restaurant
A pleasant meal, but it will never be great until we can consistently receive the food that we order, rather than whatever they decide to send us. We thought we had cracked the code by selecting "repeat order", but we were foiled again. Please note Mirabai, We can tell the difference between lamb rogan, and chicken rogan. One day they will be consistent, but not - I fear - in my lifetime
- Gina Ravens

Third Try
Third try of this restaurant was a sucess. Food arrived 25mins earlier than expected, and was of good standard. Not much meat in the main dish, mainly oily sauce.
- Brian Turner

pot luck
Back on form this time. The curries had the excess oil removed, they gave us the right items this time, though last time they said they would put their errors right, there was no compensatory element. This meal was as good as the first, so two out of three isn't so bad. I notice that the negative comments don't get posted though, which leads me to think that hit & miss is the standard
- Gina Ravens

Second Try
This second use of online ordering was not a sucess. The food arrived ontime, but having paid online during the ordering process I was asked to pay cash as the resturant had not received the payment. After a number of phone calls it was sorted out but the damage was done. To make matters worse the food was cold and not very good. The chicken madras didn't have much chicken, mainly all sauce.Now not sure whether to use this resturant again.
- Brian Turner

This was the second time I have used this online service. The first was very good, but this time was very poor.
- Brian Turner

Second order difficulties
Afterr a great meal last week, we ordered hoping for the same great experience, but there were disappointments. The first thing we noticed was the film of oil on the curries. They had been skimmed last week, maybe there was a different chef this week. The second, a side dish was wrong. We ordered a Bindi Bhaji (okra), but got Aubergine instead. I attempted to call the restaurant - the website said that there would be something from Mirabai to include the telephone number, but there was not. It took some searching online to find it. When I phoned and told them of the mistake I was told that the dishes were the same price - hardly the point at all. No attempt was made to put things right, just a vague assurance that they would get it right the next time. Having said that, the meal itself was very good, even with these difficulties. If we were sitting in the restaurant we would have been able to send back the wrong dish for the correct one. It seems that with delivery problems they really cannot be bothered. I m
- Gina Ravens

Food was warmish when arrived but had to be reheated. Curries were fairly taisty but portion sizes were small and the chicken content was far lower than expected (were left with a huge excess of sauce!), the naan breads were smaller than other places and the onion bhaji side order was very dissapointing (2 flat bhajis). Overall pretty good but would expect more for their prices. Will probably try somewhere else next time.
- David Harvey

Happy accident
After deciding to have a curry we discovered our local takeaway had decided to close on Tuesday evenings, so we decided to look online. I had not heard of Miabai before, but we decided to try. After some initial difficulties with the website, we found our selections & ordered. The food arrived promptly, I was impressed to see that there was no film of oil on top of the curries. The taste was excellent & the portions satisying, I'll definately use them again. My only gripe was the lack of ability to "special order", for example I enjoy Mottar Pilau, which rarely appears on list, though most are happy to add to the pilau - there was no facility to make this request.
- Gina Ravens

Food was tasty, so would use again. Not very hot so had to reheat before eating.
- Brian Turner

Good Choice!
The food was very nice, but more importantly, the menu had a selection of dishes I hadn't encountered before despite my love of curry. It's worth checking out just for the specials really.
- J B

Thank you!
I'm really impressed! This was the first time that I had used this service, only coming across it as I searched for somewhere that did curry deliveries in my area. The curry was lovely, arrived early and tasted great! Thank you.
