Superb curry house with brilliant atmosphere, polite, helpful and happy staff and superb food which they will cook to your liking. It is one of the few curry houses that allow you the time to enjoy your meal and not feel rushed. Highly recommended

We enjoyed our recent visit to Shakil's. The food was pretty good and plentiful and we had attentive waiting staff throughout the night. Definitely one of the best Indian restaurants in Bicester and I would not hesitate to go there again.

Visited as a family and the food, service and atmosphere was superb. The owner and his team clearly work very hard to maintain the standards they have - this is definitely a place to visit if you are in Bicester.

The food on offer was top notch even though the restaurant was full.The pace of the food was excellent I would recommend new year celebration. The only down side was the entertainment. Hopefully this will improve next year

This was our first visit to Shakils. Was happy to find it was open Sunday lunch for a nice meal before a trip to the cinema. Food was fabulous and service was brilliant. Would definitely recommend and will definitely go back :)

I would recommend this restaurant to everyone, there is a great choice of the classics or Shakil's specials, there was seven of us and the restaurant busy but our food came out together, with their friendly staff it was a joy. The restaurant had agood atmosphere and the decor is relaxing.
