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

Myself, my partner and his father had a meal here last night (10th April 2015). We can honestly say this is the best Indian meal we have ever had, and we eat a lot! My father in law lives in London and regularly eats out and was amazed at the quality of the meat and the flavours in the dish.... More

The cooked breakfast was wonderful. Best bacon ever. Good size portions. Lovely coffee and plenty of it. There's loads of choice and very reasonably priced. Sat looking out the window at... More

A truly wonderful Indian meal. Not the average local Indian, the food was really excellent and extremely authentic. An amuse bouchant from the chef of a spicy soup set the tone. The starters and main courses were familiar but different and the bread truly excellent. The service is warm and friendly and knowledgeable. Even the desserts, including gulab jaman, were... More

We have eaten at The Jali many times, but this time was special as one in our party had a fat and cream intolerance. Every choice on the menu was explained by the manager and we couldn't have been treated better. Attention to detail was faultless, the ambiance great and the waiting staff were attentive but not too pushy. The... More
