I’ve visited here twice recently, what a find, a small slice of vegetarian heaven in Ashton, and easily the best Indian veggie food I've experienced outside of London. On my first visit I had dahi wada (lentil dumplings in yogurt sauce with spices) a favourite of mine and wonderful here at Lily's. Then I tried dried vegetable manchurian, fried vegetable... More

Had read the reviews and decided we must give it a go. Overwhelmed by the extensive menu and settled for tried and tested old favourites. Masala Dhosa and Mysore Masala Dhosa with dhal. All were excellent, the service was excellent and the staff could not have been more helpful. The person in charge took great pains in explaining all the... More

Lilly's is a real one off in Greater Manchester, truly unique Southern Indian food you wont find anyone else. Everything is vegetarian and most dishes vegan and though some dishes may be unfamiliar to the typical Indian restaurant go-er it's well worth trying something new. Can particularly recommend the dosas, paneer dishes and the wide selection of tasty starters. One... More

I have only visited here twice but i am hooked and am so happy i only live a short drive away! The food is excellent, fresh and authentic Indian street food at its best! The staff are really friendly and knowledgeable and we were spoilt rotten on our last visit. They provided vegan and non-vegan alternatives for my family and... More

We have been going to LIly's for several years now and the food is always excellent. There is no other place like it in the north of England. You would need to go to Leicester to sample similar authentic vegetarian cuisine. We usually try something different every time and are always delighted with the taste and quality. The staff have...

This is a great place to eat Indian food as you find it in Asia rather than the pastiche you find in most Indian restaurants. Staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming.

We travelled 30 mins from W Yorkshire to sample traditional Indian roadside snacks and were not disappointed with the quality of the food. Positives: It is reasonably priced, authentic veg Indian food that you do not get in most Westernised Indian restaurants. Good takeaway facility with Indian sweets too. Based on this I would recommend the restaurant. Negatives: Poor service... More

I went here for a meal with friends on a Friday night upon a recommendation from an Indian friend. The food was delicious and the staff were very good. I'd definitely eat here again.

I cannot believe it has taken me so long to find this place. Gorgeous food and very fresh, lots of Vegan choices. I could go over and over and still have plenty to choose from. We ate in the cafe/diner and on another occasion also ordered as a take away. Staff are so friendly and helpful too. Love this place.
