This is a busy restaurant with people walking though the middle of it to pick up takeaways, so it seems very popular and there were quite a few people sat at tables eating. The service was slow and I got bored sat waiting. When the food came out I wasnt really blown away as it was just about average. When... More

Went here on Saturday night in a party of four people. We went on recommendation as we live in Poole so this is not our nearest Indian restaurant by far. I / We were not dissapointed at all. I can honestly say that this is THE BEST Indian food I have ever had. Every dish ordered was perfect, portion sizes... More

Went with my friend on a monday evening and had a 4 course meal I believe for 12 pounds. Food was amazing and so delicious! Definitely the top place to go in Bournemouth.

Really nice food, good portion size but service a little slow. Decor bit out dated. Overall not bad. Went with friends for the 2nd time and they are regulars so treated well and with warm friendly greetings. Not sure this would be the same without our friends.

First time visit with friends, service good but food had artificial unnecessary colouring and was sweet, not authentic at all. Meat was tough and not cooked properly and the seek kebabs were sweet, had to ask for chillies to make them savoury. I know Indian food as I'm Pakistani myself and this was probably the worst place I've eaten in... More

Several people had recommended this family run restaurant, situated in a quiet suburb or Bournemouth soi we decided to try it out. We went on a Monday night, when they offer a 4 course banquet for just £11.95. The place was full, and I can see why. Many customers were greeted by name by the friendly and efficient staff;service was... More

We visit Ali every other month with my sister and her fiancé, and will not go to other Indian restaurants now. The food is so tasty and fresh. It is not greasy like other Indian restaurants which we have visited before. The choice on the menu is extensive, but everything which we have is delicious and tastes authentic. We have... More
