Unique and contemporary cuisine at Mughli Indian Bar & Kitchen.
If you are looking for a refreshing alternative to your local curry house, this is the place to visit.
Mughli have two popular locations. One in the ‘Curry Mile’, and the other in Knutsford village, which is on the doorstep of other surrounding villages in Cheshire.
We visited the restaurant located on King Street (Bottom Street), set amongst many other fabulous places to eat and drink.
Knutsford boasts top quality restaurants and bars in a stunning surrounding. It is a small town, but is packed with personality.
First impressions of the restaurant had to be the interior.
It was sleek, modern, and stylish.
The menu differs from the sister restaurant in Manchester. It offers a simple but traditional menu that is delivered with a contemporary twist.
‘An idyllic break away from the more traditional Indian restaurant with a contemporary feel, exquisite food menu & excellent cocktails’
We started the afternoon with a Papadam basket accompanied by a pickle tray that was flavoursome and offered something more than a bog-standard mango chutney. It included a cucumber and mint raita which was delicious!
There was an excellent selection of small plates, including spiced squid, or Machli Masala which is battered chunks of haddock drizzled with a tamarind & lime dressing.
We chose the spinach and onion bhaajis that was served with a garlic cucumber dip. They were the perfect size, crispy, flavoursome, and not at all stodgy or greasy!
There was a lovely ambience in the restaurant, and a perfect afternoon to enjoy a glass of refreshing Sauvignon blanc.
For main course, it had to be the King Prawns from the Grill. A little pricier, but worth it. They were chargrilled with a punch of Kashmiri chilli, and served with a cool yoghurt. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended. Alongside the prawns, we shared a Lamb Karai – a staple North Indian favourite with onions, tomato, ginger, garlic & coriander.
Overall it was a lovely evening and offered a cool approach to Indian cuisine.
