“A very tasty Indian restaurant with great service and high quality food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

The Mughli Restaurant & Charcoal Pit is a nice looking place that seems really popular. Having eaten there now I can understand why; the service is excellent and the food similarly so. Two of us ate there each having poppadoms, chutneys, naan, mains, shared a pilau rice and had a pint of 'house lager' each and the bill came in at a shade under £40.00. I can recommend this place to others for its warm welcome, great service and high quality food - give it a whirl, you'll love it.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

This particular restaurant was quite busy when we visited on the first week of January. It displays a nice atmosphere. The food was very good & well flavoured but I agree the naans were not the best I've had - just average.
Unfortunately as mentioned on here by other reviewers the service could do with some improvement. we dealt with numerous different staff & the service was not consistent But I would definitely give it ago for the food & the relaxed atmosphere.

“Not only one of the best Indian restaurants in Manchester but simply one of the best restaurants full stop.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

The food, service and environment are all spot on. The only place we go back to time and time again. There aren't many places I would recommend unreservedly but this is definitely one of them.

“Consistently good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We visited on Christmas Eve.We hadn't booked but a few tables were available.Booking is advised weekends.We have been coming here for over 20 years,they rarely disappointThe tandoori fish is excellent.No other restaurant can match Mughli for fish.The only gripe I have is the portions of side dishes have become smaller and the prices have risen significantly.The vegetarian side dishes could be more varied.Still one of the better restaurants and I have tried many.

“Tasty flavour filled indian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

Went for a meal here on boxing day and was pleasantly surprised. We went early doors and had no problem getting a table. Service was quick and the food beautifully presented and so flavoursome! Got busier as the night went on so would advise booking if planning to eat after 6. Would love to go back to the curry mile and this would definitely be the place to go! Recommended completely :)
