On time and hot but sadly disappointing food
This is only the second time that I've ordered from Jaflong - the first time was when the restaurant just opened - whilst the service was great, we unfortunately were disappointed with the quality of the food. I thought I'd give them another shot last night, but experienced exactly the same thing. I had lamb tikka korai, pilau rice, nan and baingan masala.Firstly, the nan was lovely - hot and good flavours. Rice was godd too. The lamb tikka korai - flavours were just a bit bland - I order lamb korai dish a lot from Curry Cabin down the road and the flavours are always amazing. Additionally, I'm not convinced all of the meat was tikka - and unfortunately most of it was chewy/grisly.The Baingan Masala - it's described in the menu as "aubergine cooked with tomatoes, sliced ginger, garlic, coriander and spices" What turned up appeared to be sliced aubergines cooked in oil. I didn't see any tomatoes, and definitely didn't taste any garlic or ginger. Was rather odd really and not very nice considering th

Delightful
As always the food is tasty with great flavours. Never have to wait too long for collection or delivery. I order here a few times a week and always happy with the food.

New location, same great food
Pleased to say that the move to the new location has not affected the quality of the food and service. All dishes fresh and well cooked. Especially good are the dhal and their own sauce for popadums. Bringing your own wine is a great addition. Will be back soon
- Michael Freeston


Bland
Unfortunately, the dish I tried was bland and the chicken was dry.
- Andrea Dorset


Missing items
Food arrived on time but with missing items. Phoned to query and was passed between members of staff who couldn't seem to help. Was made to repeat my details and issue 5 times - gave up in the end. By the time I got off the phone the food was cold. Jalfrezi and Korai were identical and not wonderful. The mixed grill was small, dry and not great value for money especially as the naan was missing. Had lots of pickles and dips but no poppadoms. Vaguely apologetic but offered no solution.

Brilliant!
Delicious food, we ordered it and it came right away, beautifully packaged so it was warn and smelled incredible. Big pprtions, we could barely finish it. All in all 10 out of 10, will order again for sure!
- MARTA GENOVA


Did the job
Reasonably good food, especially given the price. Delivery took a bit longer than expected and food arrived Luke warm so had to microwave it.I thought the flavours could have been bolder.Would order again as long as 30% off deal is still on
- Richard Ashton


Wrong address on website
We ordered via the website and went to Lordships Lane to collect.. only to be told it was their sister branch about 15 mins walk away. Everything on the email confirmation to the website and this review request says Lordship Lane.The food was good value but not brilliant. The quality of meat was excellent and the samosas looked pale but tasted great. Overall could have been richer with more depth of flavour.

1 hour late
Ordered online and an estimated arrival time was given. Food arrived an hour later than arrival time, really disappointed. Was warm but not hot.
- Lucy Czaplicka


Very slow service
It took over one hour, 20 minutes for the order to arrive. Not good enough.
- Matthew Duffy

Amazing as ever
Placed order. 20 minutes later it arrived. I then realised that I had been sent a chicken tikka starter instead of a main. One phone call and 10 minutes later I had my tikka main. Amazing service and the best Indian food in London!!
- Mark Easton


Excellent
Always love the food from here. This time it took a little while to arrive and had spilt a little, so not the usual 5 stars.
- Graham Clinton

Tasty food too long to arrive
Tasty food too long to arrive 2 hours- stupid excuses - would probably order again though but not if it's raining as it slows delivery aparently

Lovely takeaway
Ordered on line and received 25%discount.the meal was well worth the money and would have paid full price,by car the best curry in dulwich and I have tried them all
- Steve Tobin


Great curry poor timing
I really enjoy Jaflong's food. That's why I go back time and again. However, I'm losing confidence with this online system. The first time I used it the food arrived over an hour and a half late. I thought perhaps this was a one off so I ordered again and booked a slot for between 20.00-20.15 after our children were put to bed. The food arrived at 19.23. Consequently our food was cold by the time we were able to sit down and eat. I can accept a small margin of error but I'm getting the feeling that nobody takes any notice of timings and just delivers when they like rather than to a customers request. Poor service in my view and makes me think twice before recommending to others until the system works to an acceptable level.
- Lorenzo Ali


Very Good
Quick delivery, good munch!
- Lee Thompson


Consistently Good
On time, and of consistently high quality. I recommend the Naga chicken; its great.
- Oliver Stevens


Frustrating
I love these people and their food; however attention to detail is lacking. I order for delivery and regularly get wrong or missing items. It seems harsh to highlight but it does piss me off because once I've had it delivered there's little one can do. Calling up and causing a scene is just not worth my while. Disappointing more than anything as the food and people are lovely.
- Tim Dent


Delicious
We ordered two of the specialities and they were both really good
- Jenny


Supurb
A lovely curry that was close to perfect. Delivered swiftly and the online discount never hurts either.
- Daniel Steel

The food is always hot and not greasy and the guy who delivered so was polite!
- Paula McMullan


Excellent grub!
Our favourite curryhouse - the food is always hot and tasty, as well as on time.
- Paula McMullan


Delicious food, great value and speedy delivery
We ordered 2 curries which were delicious, and a few side orders too - all very very good. Plus took no time at all to deliver, great value all round and will definitely order from Jaflong again!

Very tasty curry!
As always very quick service and excellent food - will order again.
- Paula McMullan


Good food, fast
I didn't try anything particularly exotic - chicken tikka and courgette bhaji. Both were well seasoned and tasty (although the courgette was a little too oily if I was going to be really picky). Ready for collection quickly and good service.
- B


Makes a great mild dansak....
...just the way I like it, thank you!

Superfast delivery and great grub
Jaflong curries are light and tasty, not swimming in grease like some other takeaways we've experienced from Lordship Lane.
- Paula McMullan


Great
Ordered a few times now and every time it's been great with standards being the same every time.
- Rebecca Peachey


very nice and value for money
The food was delivered within 45 minutes very hot and tasty. The food was fresh although there was a bit of excess oil/fat but I guess that's one of the things that comes with a curry!! overall a good experience compared to some... and I would order again.
- alessia


Light and tasty Indian food
We really enjoyed our biryanis from Jaflong which unlike other takeaways we've had recently were not sopping with grease. They were light and spicy and didn't leave us feeling bloated.
- Paula McMullan


Nice
Tandoori Nights is better but also way more expensive.
- Richard Bosek


superb quality (as per normal)
we only ever order from Jaflong as they never let us down on price or quality!!!

Very quick delivery and food was of good quality.
- Niraj Patel


Normally great - not so good this time.
I ordered specifically for 21.30, but it arrived at 21.00. nAlso, my portion was much smaller than the same dish i ordered last time. Which is a shame!

- Orlaith Richardson


good food good service
we ordered a saturday evening family feast of meat and vegtables and we were not disappointed, fresh tasty food and good efficient service, the on line ordering system is quick easy to use, cheaper and more efficient than the phone.

As always the best Asian cuisine in East Dulwich with exceptional service

Everyone happy
Ordered tonight as had friends staying. We had our usual which was tasty as usual. Friends ordered chicken tikka karai and a vegetable saag which wasn't on the menu but they were happy to do it (friend is fussy). Both got the thumbs up. Got a free bottle of wine which was nice too.

fast service good food

Best Banglo-Indian Cuisine in Dulwich
Service is ALWAYS top quality and special secret chutney to die for. Slightly more oil than expected at times but food always taste freshly made and generous on portion sizes. By far my kitchen from home and would highly recommend them
- chantelle senior


Perfect
Hard to criticise this place, the food is always tasty and my husband says the lamb is good quality which is often not the case with other curry houses. Really friendly too, they always deliver with a smile and are courteous.
- Rebecca Hawkins


Yum
Tried chicken shashlik and chicken bhuna today and both were excellent. Loads of meat in the shashlik and the bhuna wasn't too oily (so many curry houses leave a layer of oil on your curry but the bhuna didn't have this thankfully). Parents in law were impressed which is good as they're from Birmingham where there are MILLIONS of curry houses! Lovely crisp poppadoms too.
- Rebecca Hawkins


Perfect
Prompt delivery, great food, made a couple of requests regarding my tandoori chicken which they remembered which is always a bonus! Would highly recommend.
- Rebecca Hawkins


Fantastic!
Great customer service and delicious, good quality food
- Rachel Christian


Great curry
Husband has found a new favourite curry, their lamb dhansak which he has now had 2 weeks in a row. We got a free side dish too which is good for testing out dishes you wouldn't normally choose yourself. Eating their curry was a good way to get through the stress of the Murray semi final!! Delicious.
- Rebecca Hawkins


Great stuff!!!
The food was great and on time , nice and warmmmmm.
- charlotte randell


Yum as usual
Lovely food again. My husband tried something different this time, lamb dhansak, and wasn't disappointed. It was really tasty with good quality lamb. Poppadoms were fresh and crisp as always. Got a free side dish too which my husband devoured.
- Rebecca Hawkins


Another great meal!
Tasty food and speedy delivery. LOVE the tandoori chicken and the poppadoms are always so fresh and crisp, I always look forward to this meal!
- Rebecca Hawkins


Has become our regular...
Excellent food, good value and sizeable portions. Also like the free stuff you get if you spend over a certain amount. Delivery is always quick and on the odd occasion they forget something from the order they always return quickly with the item. They are a reliable curry house and always friendly.
- Rebecca Hawkins


Pretty good
On time, very tasty and an excellent delivery person.
- nick crinnion


Fast delivery and tasty food
Portions just right as well - not too much to compromise quality and not too little either.
- Dominic Judge


A good choice for a tasty takeaway
We really enjoyed our recent takeaway from Jaflong...it was tasty and not too oily as can sometimes be the case. It was delivered with a few unexpected extra onion bhajis, which was a nice surprise. Will be our takeaway of choice in future.
- Emma Rowley


Very Tasty
Jaflong always provide an efficient, polite and fast service with good piping hot food. A definite favourite in our household!
- Rachel Perkins


Tasty Takeaway
The Chicken Jalfrezi was very nice, with decent kick of chilli - though a little bit too sweet for my liking. The Lamb Karahi was DELICIOUS. The meat was succulent and full of flavour, and the sauce was excellent. Will definitely be getting involved in this again in the future.
- Phil Davies


lovely curry
even though we ordered far too much food there wasn't any trouble clearing every plate! service was friendly and got the order quickly and cheaper as went to pick it up.
- caleb fahey


Very tasty
Having tried many curry houses in the area and been dissapointed we Ordered our first delivery from jaflong last night. It was superb. Lovely flavours, good size and delivered quickly - delicious. Would reccomend
- Abigail Laurie


Average
Was ready on time and the service was friendly. My curry was pretty average and I was given onion bhaji instead of onion salad.
- Linda Donaldson


Jaflong delivers again
Despite all the curry houses in East Dulwich we always go back to Jaflong-great service, great food
- Emma Swartfigure


A very tasty meal
Food arrived within 35 mins of ordering and was hot and very tasty. I would definately order from Jaflong again.

good value
Very friendly service and delicious food, will come back
- carolina pauli


I keep coming back!
I love Jaflong's. The service is great; they're attentive without being pushy. And the food - really really great. I'm vegan so I only order from the side orders but the portions are the same sizes at the regular meals and unlike the other reviewer, I can taste the differences in each dish. I always recommend Jaflong's.

I have eaten Indian and Bangladeshi food for many years. I recently found jaflong on Lordship lane. The dining experience here is second to none. The staff are very friendly, the food is excellent and always well cooked. Highly recommended.
