This place may not be much to look at from the outside, but the food is superb and the staff couldn't be more helpful. I like my curries hot, and the chicken tikka vindaloo I had was both tasty and powerful. If you're looking for a great value meal without the tacky frills, give Mr Ali's a shot.

Very friendly staff, not too much space for tables (although it could be explained by popularity). Food is good, prices very user friendly.

I moved to North Manchester 2 and a half years ago and was quickly introduced to Mr Ali's by the locals. I have eaten the most amazing food in the most amazing restaurants and can honestly say Mr Ali's equals them all. The standard never ever drops, so many places I have visited regularly repeatedly end up being average after... More

This is a gem of a place. Doesn't look much from outside as is pretty small, but the food and service is great. Good value for money too.

As a group we were advised to use this restaurant by many locals and they were not wrong. The service was excellent the food was even better, we had the whole Chicken roasted and covered with a Lamb Sauce which was divine, along with a Lamb Rogan Josh and a Chicken Tandoori, with rice and breads. Each dish was well... More
