Me , my wife and her parents had an indian meal on 29/05/2015 on Friday. For me and my wife, it was a second visit of Jali. We had Samosa chat, Chicken Tikka, Dum Biryani and Channa Masala. They were superb. MY in-laws eat indian food weekly in Colchester where they live but they said Jali is second to none.... More

This is the best Indian restaurant in Hastings. I have tried many Indian takeaways/restaurants in Hastings but no one can beat Jali. Food is amazing, staff is very polite and helpful. I would highly recommend Jali to anyone who wants to have a good Indian food in Hastings.

There isn't a huge menu but I think this is a good thing, as what the do have is fabulous. The biryani was delicious and the lamb in a coconut flavoured sauce was so tender and flavourful. The service was very good and they were knowledgeable of all the dishes to give advice. Highly recommend.

I had breakfast and dinner in Jali. I didn't really expect the food would be so great here. The dinner was especially delicious as it was hot and freshly prepared. It's a pity I don't remember the main course name but I'm sure other ones would be great too.

We dropped in here while staying at the attached hotel, and were expecting a standard middle of the road curry, but where very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this restaurant. The menu is small, but every dish was prepared with care showed great attention to detail. The complimentary spiced broth and the unusual chutney tray were nice touches, and... More

I went to this restaurant with my husband, son and his girlfriend - it was the closest to our hotel being the main reason! But what a find! We were lucky to get a table without booking. It was very busy and I can see why. The staff are lovely and very attentive. We were given a free sample soup... More

We have eaten in this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it but have twice now tried to order a takeaway and have been very disappointed. After a long day working and running here there and everywhere, sometimes it's nice to be able to order your favourite takeaway and relax. However, Jali seems not to be very helpful with this. We have... More
