The decoration in this place is trying to be modern, but I find it a bit OTT, it's more like it's been styled like a neon night club than a curry house. The food can be good, if not remarkable, the downside of Shakils is I often feel a bit squashed in at the tables, particularly on the left hand... More

Booked in at shakils for a meal with friends. Great bar at the front of house whilst waiting to be seated. The restaurant was busy and buzzing. The menu had plenty to choose from and the waiters knew their stuff. Even though busy, food came fairly quickly and the drinks kept coming. Really great atmosphere in there. Will be back... More

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.
