What? Modern Indian cuisine, made while you wait. Choose from five different types of delicious mooli: chicken, beef, pork, asparagus and paneer (an Indian cheese).

Sounds interesting, but what is a Mooli? A brand new concept, the clever guys at Moolis developed them from scratch. They define them as ‘warm flavoursome fillings, zesty salsas vibrant chutneys and crunchy salad all rolled in a homemade roti’. We thought of them as very similar to traditional wraps, only far, far tastier.

On the menu? It’s not just Moolis, you know. There are also papadoms (a healthy version) served with delicious homemade chutney, and some extremely tempting desserts. And the best bit? It’s really quite healthy, made while you wait with hand-sourced natural ingredients. These guys are good.

What can I drink? Moolis serves some delish Mohitos – just the sort of thing we’re after when meeting friends for an après office drink. The Guava was our absolute fave, but the Lychee was lovely, too. And if you still have room afterwards, we would definitely recommend trying a mango Lassi.

And to top it off? If you’re feeling really indulgent, top it all off with a Kulfi – a creamy Indian frozen dessert. We loved them. Very much. In fact we could have kept eating them all night!

Overall? We are thoroughly converted. Delicious, healthy, and above all reasonably priced.

Need to know? Moolis start from £3.95, and cocktails from £4.50. It’s open from 12 – 10:30 Monday – Wednesday, and until 11.30 Thursday – Saturday.
