Good food, not too dear.

Food came quickly and was well cooked. Staff generally friendly. More meat in the portions would improve the rating to 5. Some classical Indian dishes, like Pani-Puri and Lamb Nihari, are very well done.

I had previously been here and had been recommend prior. I took my partner thinking it was going to be the same. Firstly, I'd like to say I NEVER complain...however. We firstly ordered our drinks. My coke I initially ordered tasted of washing up liquid. I ordered another and passed it to my partner and she said the same, again... More

On visiting Manchester for a family wedding and staying near Curry Mile a trip to an Indian was a given. Looked at a number of sites and reviews and Mughli was an obvious choice. What a brilliant place. The food was outstanding and every single dish was greeted with "Oh my goodness, that's amazing". We visited early on a Friday... More

Love the Curry Mile in Manchester. Tried the Mughlis restaurant for the first time, it was very good. Atmosphere was good, menu was different and full of variety with flavours from all over the subcontinent. Chicken Karhai seemed a bit sweet eventough I requested for hot one. Overall good. Will try it again.

I have been in this restaurant a couple of times and I will come back soon. Firstly, you can book online for a table which I will highly recommend if you are planning for a weekend meal. The customer service is friendly and relax. The menu is full of options, so if you want to give a look to their... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant with our 2 adult sons a few days ago but thiswa not our first visit (nor will it be our last). It is a vibrant, noisy and bustling place. It does not have fancy tablecloths and cutlery but the food is amazing. The Railway Curry and the Fish curry are our favourites... More

Not a traditional Indian menu but throughly enjoyed the food we had, service was quick and efficient and food served quickly and hot. Will definitely return.

Impromptu early evening midweek. No problem getting a table but it soon got quite busy - it's clearly a popular place with a wide ethnic mix and the atmosphere was great. Good service from young but efficient staff although bar service a tad slow. Not an extensive menu but plenty to choose from and veggies well catered for. The food... More
