Most horrible Indian food I ever had.Being an Indian I know how Indian food tastes like and the the food over here definitely doesn't taste Indian.Indian food is very tasty and this was half looked and we left more than half of the food. It's bad!!!

Second visit to this popular restaurant in Dartford we were passing and managed to get a early table on a busy Saturday night. The manager and staff are always polite and leave you enjoy your evening . We ordered some meat samosas to start which were freshly cooked and very crisp and hot with a nice filling of lamb ....

I've eaten at the Jafflong many times over the last few years. Each time the food has been good, cooked fresh and served promptly. I'd recommend the chicken or lamb jalfrezi as these were always good when I have visited. Staff are always polite and attentive too, just right. Many thanks for a great curry again!

My recent visit was very good with the food quality excellent. I have always found the staff friendly and like the fact they suggest dishes from the menu which gives the impression they know what there talking about. Service is prompt and the price reasonable. Chicken Tikka Pathia as mentioned is a decent dish. The décor is modern and the... More

It's a nice cosy restaurant with nice and attentive staff. The portions were generous and all of the meat was cooked wonderfully, there was a decent amount of drinks on offer and when they describe a beverage as a large it actually is. The banquet option on the menu is great value and allowed us to try a bit of... More

Typical curry house with standard menu, poor choice of drinks and 70's decor. What I ate was not unpleasant but also not spectacular, I do wish places like these would serve to customers what they eat themselves and cut down choices by 50% so they could make less dishes better. All that said it was good value and I would... More

Been here to eat and ordered take away, everytime food has been exceptional, portion sizes are always huge and great value for money. They are always looking to go the extra mile which you do not get in most places, thanks as always and will be ordering soon, keep up the good work!

Great curry, lovely staff, reasonably priced. Best place In Dartford for an Indian. The Thursday night buffet is a must.

Established in 1987. The Jafflong has been Dartford's favourite provider of Indian cuisine for over 25 years. Traditional and authentic - we don't do gimmicks, we don't do 'contemporary', we don't do 'fusion'.
