We were excited to visit Lily's given that it is fully a vegetarian menu. Unfortunately the food did not meet our expectations. The pilau rice was burnt; full of black charred bits it tasted like it came from a dirty burnt pan. The rest of our food was edible but nothing special, which surprised us both considering other reviews we'd... More

We used to be regulars till we emigrated. Now when we return, Lilys is always our first stop. Pritl and Co have created a gem in East Manchester and a week doesn't go by without somebody at home mentioning Crispy Bhajia. Staff are great, the food is fresh, full of flavour and great value. I love the Paneer Pakora washed... More

Took a one hour bus trip to pay Lily's a visit and I am happy to say, was not disappointed. The service was very friendly, helpful and the atmosphere relaxed and informal, the food was fresh, of the highest quality and not dripping in ghee. The dosas, and the accompanying sauce, were delicious, the chaat sweet and crispy and the... More

Lily's offers by far the best Indian food I've ever had! Originally from a small town in Texas, we don't have much Indian cuisine at all, so I've always been at a loss for what to order. However Lily's offers such a wide array of delicious meals that there's always something wonderful to have there! And if you're at a... More

After reading the reviews on here I finally went with a friend, who was initially underwhelmed by the look of the place, she wasn't underwhelmed after she tasted the food! Everything we had was really fresh, full of flavour and looked appetising. The sag in the sag aloo was green not khaki and all the spicing was spot on. Naan... More
