Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 June 2008

Ali's Indian restaurant is one of the best in Bedford. Their £7.95 deal is unbeatable - add to that the fact that they give all tables of four a free bottle of wine, and you can't go wrong.

For £7.95 you get a starter; main dish; side dish; rice or nan. I always go for the Chicken Puree to start, if I'm hungry - a huge portion of highly spiced chicken, rolled in a fried patty, served with salad and spring onions.

For mains, if you like it hot, the Chicken Tikka Moricha is a winner - tender chunks of chicken in a delicious sauce with whole green birdseye chillies. I've also been more than pleased with Goan Chicken, Green Mossalla Lamb or chicken...the list goes on. They also have a couple of fish dishes and lots of king prawns.

Their side dish of okra (or bindi bhajee) is a smokey concoction that brings out all the delicate flavours of the vegetable.

The only downside is the emptiness of the restaurant - it can be a bit lacking in atmosphere. Good for groups, and the staff are very friendly. Took my mum there for Mother's day, and they gave her gifts, free dishes - truly attentive and generous.
