We enjoy Shakils: to eat in as well as to order take away from. The staff are friendly without imposing. Prices are reasonable and the restaurant is clean. The blue lighting makes taking decent pictures to upload onto here rather difficult!

This Indian is superb. Food is delivered as good as it would be at the restaurant. Online ordering is easy and delivered when they say it will be. Every dish we have had is delicious. This is now the only Indian we use in Bicester. First class!!!

We went to Shakil's for their birthday evening on Thursday March 16th. It was amazing, the food was brilliant, the atmosphere superb and of course the service could not be beaten. The great thing about having a set menu is that you try items that you may not of had before, for me this time it was the whole menu... More

We booked here just before Christmas for an evening with Alvin as Elvis and a set Indian dinner. I am a vegetarian with an intolerance to onions and they happily cooked me something. Great food, great atmosphere.

I have eaten here a few times and the food is always very good. The Madras is probably the best I have had in Bicester, however what puts me off is that it is very dark in the restaurant and the music is quite loud. It is like eating in a nightclub, which isn't great. Service is always very good,... More

First visit to an Indian restaurant since moving to Bicester and what a start. This restaurant is clean, tidy and well decorated if not to everyones taste. The staff are courteous, polite and very efficient. The food is freshly cooked to your requirements and the portions are very good. Book early to avoid being disappointed if you want to eat... More
