We ordered the mango lassi for a start and was really disappointed that it tasted more of mango syrup rather than the actual mango yoghurt (tasted more like a milkshake than lassi) This was followed by chili-jito, chicken tandoori, pulau rice and bhindi bhaji which were all good but the curries we had, Railway Kari and Chennai curry were just...

Out with the work team, and had to cater for some people who didn't like spicy food, but agreed on a curry. Stumbled onto this place and it was fantastic. Catered to everyone's needs with regards to spice, tasted great and value for money! Can not fault this place.

I went to Mughli a few months ago with my dad and accidentally went in a few minutes before they opened. Despite this they were very welcoming, sat us down on a sofa and offered us drinks. When it was time for food we were absolutely blown away with the sweet potato fries, and even more impressed with our mains!... More

Always top quality food and a great atmosphere. Recently had the Kathi chicken roll for starter which is amazing. Butter chicken is top and garlic naan top notch. Definitely recommended!

We were in Mughli last night 11th March. The food is absolutely fantastic. The service and ambience is top notch. The restaurant is really busy but you don't feel rushed. Another thing is the extraordinary amount of people collecting take-out. Next time I'm in Manchester I will go back.

Was iffy about the currymile after experiencing mylahore cheating TripAdvisor by offering customers free desserts for 5star reviews. When we came to mughli and we saw an iPad, we were about to walk out fearing the same but realised they used it as a reservation system. Thank god we didn't. On a busy Saturday night. The restaurant itself is hidden... More

Came here on a recent Saturday night after walking out of another restaurant a couple of doors down. Greeted by a bubbly host at the door who told us of a wait but we could grab drinks and snacks by the bar. Sat down after a short while, ordered the lamb chops starter as we were recommended it when waiting... More

Upon arriving with fewer guests than originally planned we were faced with a £10 charge per person who had not arrived unable to get out of this charge as we couldn't just cancel our booking as our friend card would have been charged. We were then faced with poor service and were not even given wine glasses with the bottles... More

I visited mughli on a weekend with my friends and ended up having one of the worst experience. First of all we ordered appetisers and then the mains somehow the people serving us messed up our order and forgot about the appetisers, we waited for 1 just to see our mains come out of the kitchen before the appetisers. We... More
