Description: 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.

I have lived and worked on the subcontinent.. indeed my grandfather did too so as a family we love curry! I can honestly say that the curries I have eaten at The Jali or as takeaway have all been top quality, delicious food. I rarely do Tripadvisor reviews... But this restaurant comes HIGHLY recommended!

The food here is amazing. The freshness and flavours in every dish burst through. Great service too. Not your standard menu at all - the options are enticing and interesting. I have dined here a number of times over the years but have to say that recently (i.e. the last 3 or so months) it seems to have gone up... More

Took my family including daughter aged 20. During meal she used loo and was confronted by waiter old enough to know better who said, "You,re nice." Spoilt evening for me but I guess the waiter who had just finished urinating himself had other things on his mind.

Try this superb restaurant if you have never been silver-served good Indian food. Virtuallly all the restaurants in this are are Bangladeshi, which is good, but this place is the creme-de-la-creme. The peace is worth going for, the staff obliging and attentive. The waiters will describe the preparation and what spices have been used. The starters of puri, puffed up... More

Really top class Indian Cuisine . Not like your average conveyor restaurant. Jali serves authentic Indian food to its very highest standard by staff who obviously understand culinary craft and care about their reputation. I would say this is the premier Indian Restaurant in the area, probably within the region. For those who know Jali from a year or two... More

Jali restaurant is located in the Chatsworth Hotel, with a nice view onto the beach boulevard and the sea. I am not a connoisseur of Indian food, and even a bit septic, but this place serves really tasty Indian food, very good for a gnerel taste and a good introduction to the Indian cuisine. The service is friendly and efficient,... More
