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.

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

Food here is very good , not the average tasting Indian food . Hastings is very lucky to have several brilliant Indian restaurants and takeaways and this is one of them . Authentic dishes full of flavour and not just standard tasting sauces . Great food and good service . Will come again and again

You will find it extremely difficult to better the service in this restaurant. The menu is imaginative and exciting, reflecting the Indian family's love of their traditional food with a modern take. Don't go there expecting the usual Indian meal. This is very very different.

The staff were really attentive and friendly; nothing was too much for them, even our group of enthusiastic twenty-somethings. After ordering our food a complimentary spiced mushroom soup was given to each of us; really tasty with a kick to it and set a... More

This is by far one of the best Indian restaurants we have eaten in. The staff were really friendly. The food was amazing, fresh, lovely mix of spices making all the dishes we had full of flavour. If you enjoy Indian food that's different from the normal curries then this is the place to visit.

We tried the Goan fish curry - just such a delightful dish, it is my favourite dish and had this a few times whilst travelling abroad. Beautiful flavours perfectly blended together you can't help but make noises of appreciation. The guys here are so friendly and welcoming and couldn't do enough for us.
