We lived on the Fylde Coast for a few years and one of the very few reasons to go anywhere near Blackpool was a visit to the Jali restaurant. I'd heard from chums that it had shut down which was a real shame but i was aware that they had a sister restaurant so made a point of coming here... More

I regularly go to Jali and the food is consistently great. It's not like the usual Indian restaurant where most of the food is the same as any other Indian restaurant this is in a class of its own and I rate it almost as good as Cafe Spice in Whitechapel, London and that is praise indeed.

Just come back from an excellent meal at Jali. This is definitely the best Indian food in the area. My son and his girlfriend had the taster menu here just after Christmas and they loved it too. They live in London and travel far and wide but agree with us that Jali is exceptional. Good service, friendly helpful staff, a... More

We ordered the tasting menu for our table, and it was definitely worth it. Sampling lots of little dishes we'd never likely pick out ourselves, but thoroughly enjoyed. The flavours were well balanced and the portion sizes good, although we were struggling by the end! All the food was very prettily plated too.

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

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.
