used to come here on the regular basis to get some plain old good curry but one day it was shutdown and so I stopped coming here as i was clearly wasting my time.

See above, Bicester has some heavy competition in a very small area, this was a large restaurant that never seemed to be consistent and no doubt failed to balance the books

Mehfil was the best place to go for New Years Eve. Lovely food, lovely staff and lovely atmosphere. We will continue to go every New Year's Eve!

I went here a few weeks ago as a group and was a little disappointed in that for a Saturday night, it was nearly empty with no atmosphere at all. The service and food where OK, but not exceptional. The barman was very attentive and helpful, however the waiter was in a rush and quite abrupt at times, which was... More

We went here for something to eat when struggling to find anywhere else to go on a late evening. We were shown to a table quickly enough and our order was taken in good time and even the food was served quickly enough. However we were not asked if we wanted refills/drinks once our glasses were empty, we were left... More

The guy on the bar also very welcoming and great with a cocktail shaker... although he claims he's a newbie! (I Don't belive him) every one of our guests went home full and... More

Spent 2 nights in Bicester and was so impressed with our meal here on the first night, that we went back on the second! Wonderful fresh food, better than most of the Indian restaurants we find in London, and very reasonably priced. My wife was particularly happy as the food wasn't oily. The staff were charming, and in particular Miah... More
