I chose this restaurant based on other reviews and I would say that the service is very good, the food portions and quality are also very good, however I think it's a bit pricey!
The exterior and interior of the place is very modern (not table cloths), but still Indian.
I wouldn't say this was the best Indian restaurant I've ever been to, but it was a good experience overall.

Tried the restaurant again on Friday 27 September. Entered the restaurant and greeted by warm and friendly handshake of owner.The restaurant was packed around 9.30pm.
Quickly offered a table within 10 minutes.The menu had changed, offering a bigger selection than last time. The Lamb Shish Kebab starter was delicious as well as the Samosa. The Karahi King Prawns and Karahi Keema were excellent as well. There were a large portion amount of juicy succulent Large King Prawns in the curry dish ordered. The staff were all very polite, efficient and quick. Did not have to wait too long for all the meals to be cooked and served to us.

Overall, In my opinion -still the best Curry Restaurant in the Curry Mile of Manchester.

Loved the look of the restaurant. Bright and fresh, very modern, but unmistakably Indian.

The service was fast, efficient and friendly. There was a great choice of curries, and it was nice to be offered something different from the usual range. I had the Nihari, which was delicious with a hot peppery flavour. Everything was well presented and there was a good choice of cocktails to wash things down with.

Would recommend a trip to the Mughli if you're ever on the curry mile.

Me and my boyfriend went to this restaurant on a Thursday night and much to our amazement it was a very busy night in the restaurant. My boyfriend is currently on crutches and the manager was very helpful in finding a suitable seat for him in the busy restaurant. Once seated we ordered our food and drinks all in good time thank to the very helpful waiters/waitress'. The food was beautiful and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Great value for money for a great night, will definitely be recommending.

A superb Indian restaurant. Modern and beautiful décor, good service and relaxed atmosphere. The food was a little bit different to the norm and very tasty - served in great copper pots. So many of the restaurants on the curry mile are a real disappointment but this was excellent and well worth a visit. Not expensive.
