Food is always good here. portions are adequate. service is attentive but not pressured. Was quiet midweek. Interior could do with a make over now. Host is very pleasant. I preffered it before they had the alcohol licence and you could bring your own beers...More

We visited Jalali as a family party of 13 for the Sunday buffet for a birthday celebration. Jalali has always been a firm favourite for us and we visit fairly often but we had not been to the buffet before. We were all delighted with...More

Wonderful food, attentive, good service, really can't fault it. There is no sense of being overcrowded or rushed. The staff were polite, friendly and unobtrusive. Highly recommend for a quality night out at affordable prices.

A group of us from a nearby visit returned to Jalali last night for what proved to be another enjoyable and excellent value for money meal. The place itself, a converted Victorian church building, is a wonderful lofty space to sit in and the central...More

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday night, it's a lovely setting and the staff were really friendly and nice. My feedback is that the buffet is obviously catering for the masses. Whilst I understand this the food was very bland and nothing to shout about....More

Dear Rachel, Thank you very much for your honest feedback. As the nature of the buffet is once a week we do try to cater for the masses by selectively choosing the dishes....Although we do have a chicken madras in our selection. If that was...More

Fabulous meal. Though they don't know how to cook a steak! They were a bit taken back when my son took his guide dog. Unsure how the guide dog was to drink his water from a glass though. All in all great food great atmosphere....More

Last Saturday evening, I decided to eat at your restaurant with friends. We eat out every Saturday evening, and we usually eat at a local Indian restaurant. We sat down at our table and your waiter bought each of us a menu and also a copy of the wine list. I asked the waiter if we could have some poppadums and dips whilst we were looking at the menu and choosing our meal, but he said “No”, it is not possible to order poppadums until we had ordered our main meal, which we thought was a little strange. Ten minutes later, the wine waiter arrived at our table to take our drinks order, and again we asked if we could order poppadums and dips but again we were refused. It was not until we had been in your restaurant for over half an hour, and we had ordered our main meal, that we were then “allowed” to order poppadums and dips…… Whilst our meal was very good and the food was of excellent quality, I doubt that we will be visiting your restaurant again. You need to understand that if your customers ask for poppadums whilst looking at the extensive menu, then you need to provide what is asked for without having such pointless rules as “No poppadums before you place your food order”. We had to wait over half an hour after arriving before we had anything to eat. I doubt that we will be visiting in the future and hope you will reconsider this pointless “rule”……
