Tried out this little restaurant for a birthday meal, from a recommendation from a friend. We were very early for the table so we waited in the tiny waiting area with complimentary Bombay mix. We were soon taken to our table which was TINY - we were pre-warned of the size table, however we did not realise that the table... More

We found our perfect wedding venue in Waddesdon and when exploring the nearby Bicester we stumbled upon this restaurant. Do not be fooled by the size, this place is quaint but it is by far the best Indian cuisine we have ever had. We were back and forth several times for wedding planning and always, including the evening before our... More

After shopping in Biscester we decided to try Jaflongs Buffet Lunch. I wasnt expecting too much for £8.95 per person for all you can eat, but very pleasantly suprised it really was very good value. There was was popadoms with side sauces including salad, onions, lime pickle, chutney etc. For mains there were at least 2 different chicken choices including... More

We often stop in Bicester on our way to Wales, and previously have frequented the Mehfil, which appears to have closed, so trying Jaflong has been on my list for a while. We were not disappointed. I enjoyed my tandoori grill, and sampling the other dishes revealed some careful spicing. They responded positively to a request for a vegetarian version... More

Buffet was cold and I have to be honest the worst food I've had out. The restaurant was empty and I'm not surprised and they couldn't wait to get rid of us. I was embarrassed as it was a special occasion

I think that this was an amazing restaurant. It looks nice, staff are friendly and the food was tasteful. I asked the waiter for assistance in recommending a spicy dish and he was very pleased to assist and the recommended dish was incredible. Had a pleasant time here and I will be going back for more!

On a journey from Southampton to Liverpool, we decided to find this restaurant for an evening meal. After consulting 'scores on the doors' and trip advisor, this restaurant lived up to it's great reputation. The food was fantastic, prepared from fresh ingredients, probably the best vegetable biryani I've ever tasted. Great prices for a family of 4! Staff were very... More

We decided on the Jaflong based on a local's recommendation, instead of Tripadvisor's top rank restaurant in Bicester. And at the end of our meal, we were left disappointed and regret that we should have went with Denis instead. The curries were blend, the Briyani was nothing to shout about, and the service was as tired as the restaurant (though... More
