Brilliant meal as usual, haven't been for 3 years or so. Magnificent lamb bhuna, keema began and lamb tikka vindaloo with rice and garlic naan. Three children loved it, I loved it and everyone treated us like old friends. Great to be back.

Good authentic Indian food. Polite lovely staff. Could do with up grading the decor. Reasonably priced menu and discount for take away food.

Due to the restaurant being local to myself (5 minute drive,) we decided to go out and celebrate here especially with its great reviews. Having tried many Indians and being extremely partial to one for a meal I was overall impressed with the food which is easily 4 star on its on with a great selection, what lets this restaurant...

We have been visiting this restaurant for the past 15 years and it never fails to deliver. it is small in comparison to other similar style restaurants but this adds to the cosy feeling when you are seated. The staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble and they are vert attentive and will also have a laugh and joke... More

Often pop in here with colleagues after meetings etc. Staff always friendly and the food is superb, I would recommend the tasty dish, 'A Taste of Goa', never lets me down this meal.

I used to live near rusholme and thought that it did the best food. That was until we moved to prestwich and a neighbour recommended Mr Ali's to us. Whilst they do the 'usuals' they also do many other great dishes you don't find elsewhere. My favourite is the keema bagain - spicy mincemeat with aubergine. It's a tiny place... More

Typical "take away standard" Indian where historically the locals had their favourite dishes on the menu. Personally I don't care that "Dave the bricklayer likes this dish" as in my experience bricklayers are not aficionados of fine food. Avoid if you want a decent curry

Was recommended this restaurant by a local as we were staying in the area for a night. The inside is w little dates however the food is spot on! Don't know our servers name but he was fantastic, recommended food for each of us and my boyfriend even had a dish that wasn't on the menus. All had drinks starters... More
