Been here on numerous occasions & the food is always amazing. Only down side is that sometimes they can rush you a bit, not all the time just on occasion. Best curry in rusholme tho!

Nice meal, slow and indifferent service but the restaurant was very busy. Veggie choices were good. I chose a curry with mixed beans. This was not a great choice as all a bit bland. Looking around, other people did seem to have chosen some good looking dishes.

Set in the middle of curry mile in Rusholm we had heard good things of this place and it had some great endorsements advertised. The whole concept is to try different things and there were lots of sharing dishes. For me two things are very important in a curry - the popadoms and bhajis. Both were excellent here I have...

I came to this place hearing quite good things but it unfortunately was anything but that. I think my main grievances were to do with customer service which was absolutely shocking. We had two lads serving us, one who did not truthfully know what was going on and was constantly ushering another. The ‘other’ waiter was relatively rude and did... More

I thoroughly enjoy Indian cuisine and the range and variety available and I always attempt to try something different whenever we visit new restaurants. Although a biriyani is always interesting and I do like to compare the particular restaurant by the standard and quality of the biryani dish presented. At the Mughli I think I might have found the best... More

I come here as much as I can, my favourite curry house I've ever been too. Love it! Food quality, service great, interior great, cocktails lovely! Highly recommended! Not to pricey either! (Worth noting the do student and nhs discount)

Visited last week. Nice ambiance and good quality Indian food. The staff are attentive and do a good service. Not too many options for non-alcoholic drinks. Food portions are small so do order a dish per person incase of planning to share. The only bad experience was they incorrectly charge me for the drinks. If you are going in a... More
