Having returned from 3 months in India eating authentic food we have struggled to find a good restaurant in Britain. The anglocised quisine doesnt do it for me. This cafe style resaurant is a real delight. Good quality food with authentic ingredients cooked well We arrived close to closing time but the staff were really accommodating and pleasent with it....

I visited here with friends on a Saturday lunchtime and will definitely be going back. The place was really busy which is testament to the food and really reasonably priced. The food is proper indian food, rather than many curry house in Manchester and tasted so fresh. We had starters mains and a drink for less than £10 each. The... More

This was a lovely suprise. It's very informal and more like a cafe inside but the food was amazing. Really fresh, tasty Indian food and extremely good value. We had poppadoms and a tray of chutneys etc, a curry each with chapatis and two rounds of drinks and it was under £20. I would probably not go in an evening... More

Lily's is a informal, diner style restaurant that sells vegetarian and vegan Indian food. The food is authentic indian dishes rather than the English-indian dishes, with a variety of rather good dosas and indian-chinese dishes too. The dishes look and taste great, and the staff are helpful if you have dietary requirements such as being vegan. I've seen groups of... More

I've been to this place twice now and the food it's nothing short of amazing. It's authentic Indian cuisine, freshly prepared everyday. They take so much pride in making your food fresh that they don't open late into the evening which I think is brill! I especially like the pea balls to start and the saag paneer. I doubt that...

A real find, Lily's is a small and very friendly restaurant at the end of the Ashton metro line. We had a great lunch, every thing was extremely good including the naan. We asked for a recommendation and were advised to try the vegetable Lasinya, a wise choice, although I suspect everything would taste just as good as the other... More

Thank you for your wonderful review of Lily's, it's always great to hear from our customers. The Vegetable Lasinya is a popular item on our menu, but as you have stated it's great to try out other dishes on the menu too. The Sizzler has become a huge success as a delicious starter! ASM next door is definitely an '... More

small restaurant attached to an Asian supermarket. Décor basic but food incredible. Large choice of menu. Authentic Indian cuisine as shown by number of Indian people eating here. Prices are reasonable. Service is good and friendly.

An unexpected treat in Ashton Under Lyne - the best pure Indian vegetarian food in the Manchester area. There's a wide choice from mild dosas from Kerala to hot spicy dishes from Rajasthan and it's all cooked and served in a friendly atmosphere. It's probably the nearest I have found in the UK to those great family-run restaurants in India.... More

Great menu, friendly service and a very memorable 'chip nan'. We ate here with a colleague who lives in Pune and even she pronounced it good. This is really a far cry from the sloppy efforts that pass as 'curry' in most UK 'Indian' restaurants. Don't expect romance or fancy table settings. Do expect friendly and positive service. Lily's closes... More
