Definitely worth a visit for good Indian food

Booked for an early dinner benefiting from the Railway Pass if booked online (20% off if you order before 18:00). SMS reminder prior so all very efficient and friendly welcome on arrival. We went for the early bird cocktails also. I had a pineapple and lime cocktail which was very refreshing. My... read more

I went to Mughli for a friends birthday, with a group of about 10 others. Having suffered from a nut allergy all my life I am cautious about certain foods so decided that I wouldn't eat here but would have a drink etc anyway. However, on arrival, the manager was so rude and decided that the group discount would not... More

Due to the number of threats by customers of bad reviews on TripAdvisor where demands are not met {in particular where student discounts are concerned}, we no longer respond to such reviews here. However, due to the serious nature of the allegation made, I would like to reassure any potential customers {as we did with this customer too} that all... More

I reserved on their website using the railway pass and was happy that we got 20% of the bills. There was a great selection of food and it was nice to eat at a well run restaurant which was suprisingly busy for 4.45pm. There was an excellent selection of cocktails and food. We had a paneer wrap, spinach baji, lamb... More

Head and shoulders above every other curry house on the curry mile. I wouldn't go anywhere else. The Lamb Karahi is excellent!

strongly recommend, A modern take on Indian cuisine. Brilliant quality meat cooked on a charcoal pit to perfection! Offering some quite new takes on things along with the likes of coated sweet potato fries and special naan breads! Also curries are very nice and staff are friendly. Really nice decor, a move away from the traditional looking Indian restaurants VISIT

The interior gives a good first impression. Classic cosy friendliness combined with good sense of modern design. Really friendly and welcoming service. Lots of papadums, and the grilled starter the highlight of the day, that demonstrates the true charcoaled excellence of the restaurant. The curries were ok, but not special. All in all, a very enjoyable evening

I'm not an expert on curry houses as hubby doesn't eat it, so when a visiting friend fancied a curry in Manchester I was a bit stuck, however t'interweb came up with this place which sounded as if it would fit the bill. And it did! Great atmosphere right from walking in, busy and buzzing, very mixed clientele, good menu... More

First: how amazing was this place? In 4 days in Manchester - we ate there twice. Both times the food and drink were incredible - the service was great the first visit, kinda meh the second - but that doesn't keep me from giving it five stars. Definitely worth a trip if you are in Manchester for any period of... More
