Saturday night, granted, but extremely busy and the tables far too close together. You have to shout at the people on your own table in order to be heard!! Very good food, but a bit on the pricey side. Waiters not good; there was not one particular waiter dedicated to your table and staff did not appear to know their... More

We were in need of an evening meal but didn't have a table booked. Wandering down the curry mile we came across this fantastic establishment. From the greeting to the goodbyes, the service was flawless and professional. As for the food, it took our experience and knowledge of Indian food to another level. We enjoyed dishes we hadn't previously known... More

The variety of food at Mughli is great. I loved being able to order Pani Puri, Pav Bhaji and Thumbs Up - it was an authentic Indian dining experience. Nothing authentic about the prices, though. Two starters and 2 drinks and you're already pushing £15. The food is mostly delicious (if quite oily) but don't expect value.

One if the many things we realised when we returned from our year living in India was that what we had come to know as "Indian" food in the UK bore little resemblance to the food we ate on a daily basis in Bangalore. While Mughli offers North Indian cuisine, it's the first time we've had a meal in an... More

Looked on trip advisor and thought why not.... if your after a ruby this is the place to go. Lamb was so soft and melted in my mouth. Mother-in-law had a mixed grill and wow it was something else. Staff were pleasant and grateful. I dont live here but this restaurant has certainly set the bar. So good that i... More

Mughli is great, everyone knows that. It's always rammed, the food is good and the new way they've branded themselves is impressive. Would recommend the butter chicken and the sweet potato fries. But really I've never had a bad dish from here. One thing: Not a great place for large groups as it's not very big. When I went as... More

Having been to a fair few restaurants on the curry mile this is the only place that serves decent authentic food. Unlike the other restaurants that surround it, it is clear that mughli cares about decent really tasty food. Prices are reasonable for what you get and staff are always friendly. The only issue with this place is that it... More

We have never visited before although we don't live too far away. We went on a Monday evening about 5.30pm and were the first through the door although it very soon filled up. We ordered a mixture of tandoori meats to start which were delicious. The curries to follow were good although the chicken was a bit tough. A bit... More
