After reading the previous review, we were a little dubious about giving it a go, but as it was only a few doors down from our b&b, and the fact we are curry addicts, we thought we would throw caution to the wind, and give it a try. We had a lovely meal, only 4 tables being used, which on... More

Went to Jali last night after deciding to go out at the last minute, went two or three other place but they were all full up, so ended up at Jali. Rolled up out side to find a big sign saying (JALI NOW OPEN AGAIN) not a good sign. So we walked in expecting to be welcomed by a bangladeshi,... More

We live in Hastings and were looking for somewhere different to go for an Indian meal. There are a number of good places in town. We had tried Jali's food from their stall at the annual seafood and wine festival (usually third weekend in September and well worth a visit) and really enjoyed it but never been to the restaurant....

Excellent service with proper tablecloths, tasty food and good range of wines and beer. Quite expensive for an Indian restaurant though.

What a great meal I had here. Been twice now. Suberb food. Very authentic but with a fine dining twist. I would recommend most dishes but the thali is superb.

We visited Hastings for 5 days recently, primarily to check out the Foyle's War connections. We ate in a different restaurant each night. The Jali was the best. Superb food, superb service. We will definitely be back when we next visit Hastings.
