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.

Excellent restaurant and a new experience from the usual tastes you would expect at an Indian. Both starter and main were different and better than the norm. Samosa for starter... which was yum! Lamb Roganjosh for main normally not too keen on this as can be very tomato based, but waiter recommended and reassured that it was not tomato based.... More

It was bitterly cold in Hastings today, but we received a very warm welcome in the very well heated restaurant this evening. The meal and service, from two charming young members of staff, were excellent - as good as in some very smart London establishments and every bit as tasty as in our favorite places in the West Midlands. It... More

I haven't ever reviewed an Indian Restaurant to date but felt compelled to list the Jali on Tripadvisor. The Jali in Hastings provided me with a takeaway this evening. Unlike the majority of Indian Restaurants in the UK, the Jali delivered a true Indian culinary delight, new flavours that I had not experienced before - I thoroughly recommend it and... More

We had a super evening last night at Jali. Excellent, friendly, not over-fussy service - just right! Simply delicious meal - the best Indian food I've eaten in many a long year. Add all of this to very pleasant surroundings, it makes for a 5star food experience. I would have no hesitation in recommending to anybody and will definitely return!!

Fabulous food. The menu is not the traditional Indian that you expect and get in all other Indian Restaurants but the options are excellent and make for a real nice change from the standard. The freshness and flavours in every dish burst through. Great service too. The Goan fish curry is superb. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant... More

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!
