When I first came to live in Blackpool in 2000, I discovered Ali's, having been recommended by a friend. Over the years I patronised it regularly, and then moved away from the area. I returned recently to discover that it had changed hands, and whilst it LOOKED the same, the food was definitely not. An Asian kitchen is made or broken by its chef, and this one is not just broken, it's shattered. I've given it three chances, but sorry, three strikes and you're out. It doesn't help when you see that it now has a one start hygiene rating from the local council inspectors, which is a standard I would never visit. The surrounding area is also now very dubious; waiting outside and having a smoke while my food was being prepared I was propositioned by a prostitute and offered goods from a drug dealer!
