Very Fucking Good Food And A Taste Of The Sub-Continent Lies 40 Minutes Out Of The City Centre

Masala, jalfrezi, paneer, butter chicken (for the wetties among us) and vindaloo. 

I’m all over Indian food. As far as I’m concerned, it’s the best cuisine out there and the spicier the saag the better. 

And after eating my way through just about every Indian restaurant in London (wanker alert) I’ve since been on the hunt for the perfect puri and the most delectable Dansak here in my new home – Manchester.

But I’ve had no luck… 

Until now. 

I had the distinct pleasure of dining in Knutsford’s beautiful Mughli last night. 

Tucked away just off King Street in the quaint little Cheshire town, with another on Wilmslow Road, this gorgeous little venue is as rustic and authentic as it is affordable. 

And, although I’m not a veggie myself, it caters notably well for vegetarians and those with special dietary requirements.

With mains starting from £8.50, and tasting menus at £20-30 depending on what you go for – you can’t really go too wrong. 

The chef and his team use the best of Indian spices, the freshest of vegetables and the finest cuts of meat and fish around – all cooked at the perfect temperature on the restaurant’s speciality focal charcoal pits.

What more could you want?

The spices and flavours are overwhelmingly intoxicating and a total circus for the senses. And for those of you who can’t take the heat, don’t panic – every spice level is catered for here and the staff are super keen to chat through any questions you have about any of the dishes and make suggestions depending on your preferences.

Naturally, we tucked into everything. 

And it was off the chain.

This is truly authentic Indian food – cooked with delicious homemade (they make their own paneer – and it’s top bloody notch) grub. The real deal – absolutely.

A match made is taste heaven.

And oh, the sweet and sour Indian calamari – not something I’d usually order at an Indian restaurant – was absolutely divine. I would go back for that dish alone.

The brothers at Mughli and the brewmasters at First Chop have also just launched an exclusive light ale brew called the ‘Horn OK Please.’ 

It is a craftily hopped, straw-coloured ale with noticeable aromas of citrus and honey – so basically making it the perfect accompaniment to Mughli’s bold ‘Indian Soul Food’ dishes, and the design by Stanley Chow is super cute too!

Other drinks available span a range of gorgeous cocktails including the Indian porn star martini, a wide range of red, whites and rose and craft beers – so there’s a bit of something for everyone.
