Located in Historic Downtown Freehold, Aarzu Modern Indian Bistro presents an exceptional upscale dining experience.
Modern Indian cuisine is making rapid strides. Today, it has moved beyond the realms of fusion gourmet. At Aarzu, we are taking the Indian cuisine out of the butter chicken and curry circle. The focus is on taste, texture and presentation. While the cooking method remains the same, our recipes involve diverse elements and unique food pairings with presentation being the focal point. After all, we do eat with our eyes first! Our innovative menu also brings to light the regional culinary diversity of India.
The décor, lighting, colors, art and even the serving platters in Aarzu are designed to complement the food to create the complete experience for the guest.

One of the best restaurants I've ever had the pleasure of dinning...I've been everywhere experiencing the best restaurants this world has to offer and I have to say Aarzu is simply up there, and it's right here in downtown freehold. Some would say a hidden gem. The service is best of the best. Supper friendly and inviting atmosphere. I dropped my fork and within seconds someone was already replacing it. The food makes me want to come back every single week. Every dish is carefully thought of and made made with passion. If you haven't been to Aarzu yet you're missing out. Highly recommend making a reservation for the weekends as there is a long wait.

Incredible meal with outstanding service . Thus was our first time at Aazur and wonderfully surprised at the quality in all aspects . The meal was outstanding from the Beet appetizer to the lamb chops and buttered chicken . It was simply wonderful . I have eaten Indian cuisine in many counties and feel that this is one if the best globally .
We will definitely dine there again , real soon .

The food was just fantastic, as was the service. Their food tends to be different from the usual Indian fare one gets at restaurants. Their Beetroot and goat cheese appetizer is one of my favorites. All the food was great. It was a Saturday night, so the only downside was that it was busy, and therefore noisy. The service was attentive and helpful, in spite of the fact that there were many tables to serve. Overall, a highly recommend eating experience

A very nice Indian restaurant with food that is well prepared. The only issue was that we had asked for non-spicy preparation and the food came out medium hot (our description).
