I don't change where I go for a curry but was invited here with a group and this changed my mind. The dishes are served in a variety of signature styles. Obviously more thought has gone into these dishes compared to how you would expect. Great food.

Had the biriani- really tasty! Friend had their chicken tikka masala- it's the best I've tasted. Naan is good regular size and rice is cooked just right. Nice atmosphere.

3 of us visited on Sunday night and enjoyed a good meal. All our meals were excellent, the only one which was just less than excellent was the chicken tikka masala, I know this is a uk manufactured dish but my partner who has it everywhere said it was a bit tasteless. Overall service was excellent, staff friendly without being... More

Lamb madras had very little flavour to it, plenty of chilli powder to act as heat rather than spice. Pilau rice was slightly dry however wasn't greasy unlike other restaurants. Naan breads were good overall but some more filling would be good for keema and peshwari! Vegetable curry side dish resembled a concoction of soggy vegetables mixed into a basic... More

My husband and I popped in Ali's for tea. We decided to give it a try after so many recommendations. We were not disappointed. The menu has a great choice and the chef will cook it to your acquired taste or to what the taste buds can handle. When the dishes arrived the smell and the presentation was amazing and... More

Called in here one Friday evening for no other reason than we were passing and fancied a bite to eat. I'm so glad we did - I'm not a great fan of Indian cuisine but my Chicken Tikka Masala was delicious. There were 4 of us and everyone's meals looked and tasted great. The staff were all efficient and deserve... More

Me and partner enjoy eating out every fortnight, thought we'd try a place a little further away rather than locally. The food was a lot better than what I was expecting, from the outside the restaurant doesn't look like a place that you could wine and dine however the food was great. The environment was very friendly, I highly recommend... More

About 20 of us arranged a meal at Ali's after performing at The Castle Theatre last Friday evening. I would just like to say that the food was amazing and the service excellent. We were treated like royalty and everyone really enjoyed it. I would like to thank Malik and his team for a great evening. X
