The food here was outstanding. Spicy but really tasty. Fun atmosphere especially for large groups. Loads of food options without being overwhelming. Only down side was that the service was a bit slow during our meal but I appreciate they are very busy.

4 of us booked in at Mughli. The service was good and the food was fantastic. Parking is hit and miss but there are spaces dotted around. Recommendations are lamb karai, sheesh kebab, keema naan. Great meal.

Hey JayTee, there are a number of pay & display car parks around Rusholme with limited spaces so, depending on the time of your visit, they can get quite congested! The largest of them is directly behind the restaurant and... More
