My sister in law is a very clever lady. She jets off all around the world in her role as a fashion designer, creates the most beautiful wedding favours in her spare time and recently landed a new job to boot. A celebration was in order! We decided a curry was our best option as Jenny doesn't eat red meat, and wanted something tasty.
I had recently read a fantastic review of Mughli over at Hungry Hoss' blog, where there was talk of gunpowder chips and Pakistani street food. Belly rumbling, I rang to book a table toot sweet. The chap on the phone was lovely, and suggested we book a Kashmiri booth for the occasion - wonderful!
Mughli is situated on Wilmslow Road, in the heart of the curry mile. As Hoss said in his review, there aren't as many curry houses as there used to be, but judging by how busy they all were at 7.30pm on a Saturday - the remaining ones are doing very well indeed.
I'm glad to say it got better from then on. Their range of drinks is imaginative, including refreshing little numbers like the mango muddler (below, left) and Lahori breezer (below, right) as well as the usual wines and big brand beers. They even drew a face in my mango lassi, which was so good that it was swiftly stolen by the sibling (he has a Fruit Corner addiction - it's a shame).
Not content with enough food to fill the table, we also ordered gunpowder chips, cheese and garlic naans, keema pulao rice and saag paneer.
I can't remember the last time I was so full. Mughli is a decent curry house serving your normal crowd pleasers plus a few house specials. The tava roll is pretty good as were the little railway chicken pieces. I also really liked the choice of fruit based drinks. My husband was particularly pleased with the gunpowder chips too. The naan breads could do with being a little fluffier and with more cheese!
On the whole Mughli was a decent curry and the service was pretty good too. There was the slight misdemeanour with the reservation, but that can be forgiven because the food was good. I'd definitely go back here. I'm just gutted that I didn't check whether funky pie was on the menu...
