“The best restaurant on the curry mile!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

If visiting Rusholme for a curry, make sure you choose Mughli (it's easy to find as it is the best-looking restaurant with the best decor). The food is amazing and great value... the chicken korma is the best I have ever had. The staff are attentive, polite and friendly. We have never made a reservation and are always able to get a table even on busy Saturday and Friday nights with just a few minutes wait in the bar. I've recommended this place to so many friends and family and they have all been and loved it. Also, it's great for students as you can choose either 15% off your bill with a student card or to bring your own beer/wine. Mughli is the best restaurant on the curry mile!

“Best restaurant in Rusholme”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

This place has the quality of food that a lot of the city centre restaurants have but at the cost of Rusholme. They have many of the normal dishes you can get in all of its neighbouring restaurants but also many other specialties.
As loads of people are now catching on to how good this place is you should book your table in advance, also go on their website or yelp for discounts.

“Lively atmosphere and good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

I visited here with a group of colleagues. The atmosphere was lively, verging on rowdy at times due to a huge group of males. However the food was well cooked, tasty and the service was friendly and attentive.

“Best meal I've had on the mile, money well spent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

I have been many a time to this restaurant and it never fails to excel itself. The food and service is excellent. The mixed meat shashlick is enough for 2 proving that the portion sizes are value for money. Love the atmosphere and the copper pots the rice is served in. We're students and the 15% off the bill with an nus is great but they often change their mind on when they want to see the card so check when you go in. Truely a brilliant place-The only downfall this place has is the loos, there's never any loo roll.
