We have not visited Mr Ali's for a couple of years [since my last review], the only reason being we have never got round to going back until now. Whilst the restaurant looks like a host of other Indian restaurants from the outside and nothing special that's where the similarity ends as the quality of the food sure does make... More

Been here quite a few times now with my partner. Always a warm welcome from the Management. Food is spot on every time, and service is brilliant. Staff are extremely efficient and friendly, and very reasonable prices...quickly becoming my favourite indian restaurant.

I have only had take out, the food as always been good, they need to spend money on the decor as it is untidy, people who do not no how good the food is would not stop on passing because it looks scruffy.

We have been going to this restaurant since it opened over 23 years ago, I was very fortunate in that my birthday coincided with opening night. The food is superb, so good that we've even taken a full meal from Mr Ali's to my family in Norway. The staff are always on the ball & the whole experience is very... More

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 wonder if all the raving reviews are from regulars....this is a VERY dated Indian, although I didn't mind the decor it could put some diners off. The staff are friendly and welcoming. I ordered butter chicken for main and it looked exactly like Heinz tomato soup with chunks of chicken thrown in, tasted ok but didn't look great. My... More

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
