“Veggie Delights”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Lily's is not a restaurant ...more of a Cafe style setup...But I don't go there for anything other than the food.
Eaten there many times and can never fault the food...Massala Chai (Spiced Tea) could be better but thats nothing as the service comes from the heart of the people serving you.
I don't blieve it's run to make profit but to make a statement on how good Veggie food can be and also provide an eatery for the many Gujarati Veggies in and around the area.

“Most delicious Indian food in Greater Manchester”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Vegan & Vegetarian menu all cooked to order - fresh. Advice given. Often busy. Just love this place. Great variety of snacks ie Punjabi Samosa that I'd not tried before, and the peas Kachori are just amazing. Lots of Indian sweets too. The food is fab. Service is fab. We love it xxxx

“Not a restaurant more of a cafe”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

They call it a restaurant but it is a café. The seating is un-comfortable and broken. The food quality is hit and miss! The owner has a chip on his shoulder. We parked in the car park and went into the café
He came running round asking for car reg as he was going to clamp the cars parked their illegally. This started the visit on a bad point. The food was dropped on the table rather than being placed. When we complained we just got a shrug of the shoulder as if you don’t like it don’t come here attitude. I would not visit here again!

Thank you for taking the time to review Lily's.
We truly value the opinions of our customers and we apologize that we did not meet your
expectations.
Providing our guests with the best possible hospitality, food and service is and always has been our priority and it does upset us to hear you were not satisfied.
Unfortunately we have had to appoint a car park patroller, to monitor the car park, as some people leave their cars and go elsewhere and therefore your car registration would have been requested to prevent you from being issued with a ticket, we do apologize if this was not explained at the time.
Thank you for your review and feedback.

“Best value in Manchester”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

The most delicious Indian food ever. Freshly cooked and reasonably priced. Service and attitude of staff is excellent. They will also make the food more spicy if you wish and give you advice on each dish before ordering. Huge array of Indian sweets. Their samosas are freshly made and tasty - not greasy like some - and the dosas? Mmmmmmm. Well worth a visit I love the place! Very, very child friendly too. The only draw back is the cafe/restaurant closes around 7.30pm

Thank you for such a lovely review, you are absolutely right in saying our food is all freshly cooked and therefore can be made according to our customers tastes.
We love to take time to have a chat with our customers when they are ordering to make sure they enjoy the meal they order.
We do have some good news for you, Lily's will be staying open until 9.00pm, last orders at 8.30pm, from 9th May for Fridays and Saturdays only at the moment,
We will also be open all seven days from 13th May, therefore if anyone wishes to come on a Tuesday it will be convenient for them.
We appreciate you taking the time to write this lovely review for Lily's and look forward to welcoming you back very soon.
