Small but perfectly formed Jali is a refined Indian restaurant set within the landmark Chatsworth Hotel on the seafront at Hastings. The smart menu, which has won an AA Rosette, fuses traditional dishes with modern techniques to produce elegant dishes such as marinated prawns in tomato gravy and a rich, spicy dum biryani.

Delicious authentic Indian cuisine, impeccable service!

This place was recommended by our hotel, and with good reason! Every dish was delicious but what really made the meal was the lovely friendly service. Would heartily recommend; one of the best Indian restaurants I've eaten in!

Excellent meal and service. Went not expecting anything out of the ordinary but very pleasantly surprised at the excellence. Had a few meals in Hastings but this was by far the best in every way.

Dined here last weekend and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Extensive menu was very different to the average Indian restaurant. The street food section was good and the 'specials' were also good. The manager was very friendly and the three waiting staff - one lad and two girls - were extremely efficient. Our food was all served onto our plates... More

So close to being excellent but the staff letting it down. Service was slow, unorganized and rude. Havn't been for a few years due to this and return to discover the same. Food was lovely, real Indian food with fantastic flavors. The breads are the best I've ever had. Well worth a try, hopefully it was just a bad evening... More

ambiance of softly lit non-intrusive decor. Charming waitresses, linen, and outlook onto seafront and rolling waves.

Modern Indian food beautifully, elegantly presented, fantastically tasty. The staff are warm and knowledgeable, and the Manager, Parthenon runs a tight ship. The rogan ghosh is the best I've ever eaten, the bel puri is stunning and the breads are perfect.
