We are not vegetarians but this was really tasty food!

Went with an open mind because we are meat eaters but we wanted to try something different. We were not disappointed . Food was really good, lots of choice, good freshly made naan bread. Basic cafe type surroundings, staff helpful and friendly. Would recommend a visit.

My third trip to Lily's.The food is so tasty and authentic. I've not eaten the same thing twice as so much choice. The spinach and potato curry was wonderful and the garlic cheese naan was a great accompaniment. The staff are helpful and friendly. It was so busy but we didn't have long to wait for a table and it... More

Had lunch at Lily's today. Chose to go because of the excellent tripadvisor reviews and it did not disappoint. We had booked in advance which was lucky as it was full. All the food we ordered tasted so fresh and beautifully spiced. The pea starter was my favourite, as well as the juicy pieces of paneer. All the dips added... More

As a vegetarian you come to not expect much of what is offered in restaurants, but Lily's is an exception. So much choice,and the food is always delicious.The atmosphere is always friendly,and feels like a special occassion even if you're just calling in midweek.

I noticed my review was over a year old and thought I should update my review as things change. Lilly's hasn't changed much. But in an age of short-cut cooking that consistency means they stand out more than ever. I was going nearly once a week and now go nearly twice a week and that's a change too. I've used... More

Our 2nd trip to Lily's. Took my daughter this time. She was spoiled for choice. Being a veggie there isn't normally much to choose from. Food hot fresh and real good. The service is just spot on friendly helpful and not too formal. Will be back.

Lily's is a friendly restaurant that produces a range of Indian vegetarian dishes to a high standard from an extensive menu. Luckily they also employ a chef from southern India and so offer a selection of dishes from that region. It is worth making the trip just to have a potato Masala Dhosa. This lovely crisp pancake is filled with... More
