Excellent service and good food!

Very friendly family run restaurant. Great service, quick to take orders and serve drink and food. Food very high standard and good portion sizes. They seem to have a very good return customer service - which speaks volumes. Been about 4 times would definitely return again!

Cramped in a corner by a door with mediocre service Average food and fraught lager was awful. Tip: if the waiters stopped talking and got on with it would be better... Not the best visit Shame

Ali offers good service, good food and good prices. I have been going there for years and he has never failed to give good service. The restaurant is small , friendly and has an old fashioned Indian feel about it. .

We've yet to be disappointed by the set-price Monday banquet. The choice is wide, the food is great and the atmosphere terrific... and then of course there's the extended happy hour. Ali and his sons really do their best to make you feel welcome. We've no hesitation at all in recommending this first-class Indian restaurant.

On my first visit I ordered what I call my 'Test Meal'. A takeaway meal that I judge all new restaurants against and I was extremely pleased with what I received. Not the most exciting combo but prawn puri starter was followed by chicken pathia with keema rice. All three dishes came in at 9/10. I'm sure they would have... More

A superb restaurant and very warm welcome by the Ali brothers, the food was excellent and the price was good value. Would recommend Ali's Brasserie in a heartbeat.

Pretty standard but always fun. Decent price. Highlight, if they still do them, is the 6 pint beer towers you can get on your tables.

This is certainly NOT an authentic Indian Restaurant. The food is just terrible and I felt it was all from a packet accept the poppadums! The waiters were not professional at all in fact they seemed more interested in chatting up the women. When asked for the bill I was left waiting whilst the waiter turned his back on me... More
