“High end indian food but let down by poor service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Visited on a busy friday night. Great flavoured food, i would strongly recommend the Tamarind Masala haddock starter. Main course was fantastic also. However, let down by poor service as it felt very rushed and we were constantly being harrased. It was as if they were trying to clear the tables due to busy friday night. Also, the waiters were quite ignorant and lacking basic manners and courtesy. An area for improvement that management need to look at.

“Best Indian in manchester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

If you are in curry mile or in the Manc area then make sure you pay a visit to mughli. Best Indian in manchester! Have heard it gets very busy in the evenings so decided to go a little earlier. The starters were absolutely delicious full of flavour! Curries were also very tasty thank you to the waiter for the recommendations. Cannot wait to come back.

“Great food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We had been to the food fight in manchester a few weeks ago and tried some food from the Mughli stand. We were really impressed so decided to book in at the restaurant. The starters were lovely, always the best bit! Somebody had king prawns off the charcoal grill and two massive prawns came, they were delicious! The mixed grill was amazing! Would definitely go again.

“Favourite Indian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

I've visited this restaurant numerous times and it never fails to disappoint. It's definitely my favourite Indian restaurant in the city. It has good portion sizes, reasonable prices and excellent food. The fresh juices are a must-try, as is any of the paneer dishes.
