2nd time to Mowgli once in Liverpool once in Manchester. I just don't get the hype both times food was bland. Go a proper indian. Plenty of choice out there go somewhere else.

As always at Mowgli the food was great but the service was unbelievably slow. Initially good (Prosecco on table as requested) but then it went downhill. Yoghurt bombs arrived first, then 20 minutes later angry bird appeared. Another 20 minutes passed and no sign of our food. We eventually got the attention of a waiter and chased our order which then arrived almost instantly?! Only thing missing was the puri but told it was coming next. 10 minutes more and we had to chase again. It was a Thursday early evening, the top floor closed and the ground floor only two thirds full. There is no excuse for such slow and inattentive service, especially from a street food style venue

Beautiful food and great value for money.. I had been wanting to try the Liverpool one for a while so when I found out there was one in Manchester I had to book! I wasn't dissapointed cannot wait to return. The surroundings where just right the only criticism is the service was not very attentive we waiting a while before we could grab someone to order more drinks and to get the bill. But nothing major

I really like Mowgli, the decor and food is really great, very social, great for meeting up with friends. You share tapas like indian food, and the food comes as it's ready so there is always something arriving. Really like it, food is really tasty.

The yoghurt bombs are really special. The Indian food itself lacks oil and it's closer to homemade but whimsical twists - eg ginger, rhubarb Dhaal. The lassi is not pumped full of yoghurt. Everything suggests an emphasis on quality which is rare in an Indian restaurant. The backstory of the owner is also intriguing

A very enjoyable birthday celebration evening. Our family enjoy Indian cuisine but this was on another level! Love the overall concept of small dishes to share. 5 stars! We will definitely return to sample more of the delicious menu.

First time visit. The food was fantastic. Well presented. Service was attentive. And overall ambience was great. The price was incredible. It was our 28th anniversary but would suit any occasion. This was the Manchester Mowgli looking forward to visiting the Mowgli in Liverpool when it opens.

I love this place & my only concern is that it becomes so popular I can't get a table. The lamb chops are amazing. So is the bhel puri. And the goan fish curry. Go! (Unless I can't get a table)

Have tried to get a table in Liverpool on a number of occasions but struggled as unable to book in advance. Booked in Manchester as we were going to be there for the night. Was not disappointed. Food was amazing! We needed help ordering and the server helped us to get our order spot on. We will definitely be going back when the new restaurant opens in Liverpool! Only thing that could've been improved, we were served too fast for my liking. Within 40minutes, we were finished. I would've preferred to have been able to stretch it out a little longer

We were served quickly and the menu was explained well, with discriptions of the food. The food and drinks were good value and we will return to try out more of the delisouse menu options. The food arrived quickly and we all loved the authentic indian dining dishes. We were all choosing what we would have next time by the time we left. Excellent food and service - Well done.

Love the ambience, need blinds for the windows in the summer, as sunlight very strong. Friendly staff who explained the menu, attentive and approachable I found the food on the sweet side. The youghurt bombs are to die for and you must try the mowgli g&t yum! Give the spare ribs a miss as overloaded with sugar. The greens as a veggie option tasted lovely but not green! Disappointed by the "wrap" they call a roti, unfortunately not authentic at all, however the puris are. The chocolate dessert isn't spiced just a choc fudge cake. 3-4 dishes/ tapas are about right per person incl rice/roti. All the dishes come out at different times( which they do warn you about) but it would have been nice for everyone to get 1 of their dishes so they weren't watching the rest of us eat.

Exceptional food, friendly helpful staff. I had the Tiffin box which I was delighted with along with yoghurt chat bombs which were to die for. Others in the group had a mix of dishes and we're delighted with all even the one friend who isn't really into curry. Well recommended. Was glad we were sat upstairs however as it was incredibly busy.

Wonderful food, friendly staff. The colleague that looked after us this time remembered me from a month ago when a bunch of train delays meant I started the date on my own. So that was nice to be remembered and continue where we left off. Great cocktails. Wine slightly on the pricey side, but good quality.

This is a very different style of Indian food. Smallish portions which is ideal for my wife and I and also gives the opportunity to try several dishes. Went early Friday evening and there was plenty of room, but I would suggest booking at busier times.

The food was very good and we will be back to try some more dishes in the near future.
