Having visited this restaurant for the second time this year, we were really disappointed on this occasion. I believe that if your paying high end prices in a restaurant, the food should be spot on. This time the food was bland and extremely boring. Neither enjoyed the meal. And then to top it off, they charged 10% service fee for... More

Another lovely night at Jali . The street food starters were just perfect and the main courses were beautifully served . A special treat for me as a teetotaller is the range of mocktails - the mango lassi is sublime . The staff were attentive and friendly and the maitre de was clearly passionate about giving the best Indian dining... More

Really disappointed. We were expecting a touch of class but we were left without food or drink for so long we felt we were hassling the staff to even get someone to our table. We arrived at 6.30 and I had to leave at 8 to attend an event. We waited 30 mins just to be asked if we'd like... More

The ambience and decor at Jali were delightful, with a couple of different dining areas. The waiters were very accommodating and kind to our group of five, which included a 2-year-old and a wheelchair user. The dishes were among the best Indian I've ever had, and the prices were fair. We all enjoyed our Indian desserts too, which are made... More

Visited a few weeks ago, ordered for two people and received plenty of food. Great service from the waiters, at both point of entry and when sitting at our table. The food was delicious, I was presently surprised as Hastings does not really have many halal restaurants and therefore I did not expect such high quality and great tasting food.... More

We ate here on Saturday 20th August as a party of six and had a lovely meal. I so enjoyed the little pre-starter soup which was a nice touch and very tasty. I then ate the king prawns starter which was excellent, followed by the Goan fish curry, again, this was beautifully flavoured with fresh tasting herbs and spices. The... More

The food was lovely cannot fault. However the service was very slow, everyone was kept waiting. The waiter blamed this on the restaurant being unexpectedly busy as only a couple of tables had been prebooked.

We have visited this restaurant many times and it still titillates the taste buds the menu is as good as ever. My Lady is a vegetarian and finds plenty of choices and the wonderful Fruit Salad is worth sampling. As Indian cuisine goes this is one of the very best and the staff are as always very affable and super... More

Description
Small but perfectly formed Jali is a refined Indian restaurant set within the landmark Chatsworth Hotel on the seafront at Hastings. The smart menu, which has won an AA Rosette, fuses traditional dishes with modern techniques to produce elegant dishes such as marinated prawns in tomato gravy and a rich, spicy dum biryani.
