Fancied a change from my usual boring lunch of chicken and rice and wasn't disappointed. The meal was excellent and filling but didn't leave me feeling over faced and stuffed like a lot of takeaway curries can do, all the flavours and spices were mixed very well and you could tell it was all made fresh to order. I had... More

I have picked up a vegetarian meal to take away a few times and have never been disappointed. There has never been much of a wait and I've often been offered free starters and bites to try whilst I waited. Friendly staff

We’d forgotten just how good the bhel puri is at Lily’s – probably the best we’ve eaten anywhere. Which may be a surprise to folk when they think it’s only a café with a few tables tacked on to an Indian supermarket. There’s crunch from sev noodles, there’s potato, peanuts and tomato, there’s sharp from tamarind (?) and a kick... More

My wife is vegetarian, I am not, but the food at Lily's is so amazingly tasty I didn't even think about meat, fantastic service, very friendly staff. We will be coming here at least once a month as our special treat. Highly recommended

Have eaten here many times. Do not be put off by the fact this is vegetarian food. We are not vegetarians but have never left this restaurant anything other than very satisfied and full.
