A short weekend break to Manchester led us to the curry mile. A fantastic experience - the restaurant was very busy but the service was excellent. The food was very tasty and cocktails delicious. Will be back!

Visited here with a group of friends. The food was amazing so no complaints there. What spoilt it was staff members constantly asking us if we needed anything else, anymore drinks; made us feel like we couldn't relax, enjoy our food and catch up with friends. The final annoyance was when we were given the bill the staff member stood... More

We have been going to this curry house for 15 years since peter (with a bread named after him) ran it. It has certainly changed since he died and his son took over however the food is completely amazing. You will not see the average curries like a rogan josh or other similar names on the menu however all the... More

I've been having curries in Rusholme for over 30 years, but I've not been for a while. Things have certainly changed! Sadly, the four-quid curry is a thing of the past. On the plus side, "Curry Mile" is a much more salubrious area than it was. And Mughli is perhaps the pinnacle of that change. The restaurant itself is beautifully... More

Went there for our anniversary dinner, we were starving after doing a lot of shopping at the Trafford Centre and thought we give this place a go, it is one of the run of the mill Pakistani dishes hidden under the Mugli cuisine they famously talk about, but anyways food was great service was poor but we weren't fussed at...

Curry is my favourite food and I am very judgemental on restaurants. This place was brilliant. The experience was second to none. We had starters, gorgeous, mains gorgeous, dessert, gorgeous. Staff were very good too. Price was very good for what you get. Left very happy and when I'm next in Manchester I will definitely return.

Eaten here many times now, never disappointed! Lamb chops, chicken tikka, butter chicken and gunpowder chips are to die for! 5/5 for me, not pricey either.

Great restaurant on the curry mile. You have to order the gunpowder chips they're addictive. My kids love this place. Only niggle is they seem desperate to clear plates from the table before we were all finished, This frustrated me. Recommend though from the food point of view.

This place is the most overrated restaurant in Manchester. My visit consisted of below average food, poor service and an umpressive bill.

Went with a few business colleagues from Manchester, as we were born and bred in Manchester we never really tried Mughlis, despite being to nearly all the restaurants in Manchester, this has to be the greatest in quality and taste! Definetely recommend it to people who are lost on which restaurant to eat at... 5* food! Epic, literally lost for... More
