Mooli’s Restaurant Review

Found at 50 Frith Street, Soho, Mooli’s is in the heart of the West End so should be on everyone’s must-visit list after (or before) a night out – or for a lunch on the go…


What is a mooli? A ‘mooli’ is basically an Indian wrap, but unlike the often stodgy, sticky and slightly wet things found in supermarkets and sandwich bars the length of the land, these are light, zingy and incredibly tasty.

Whose behind it? Founders Sam and Matthew both grew up in India and wanted to bring the best of Indian fast food to the UK, but wanted something different to the usual street food on offer here. Quitting high powered city jobs they travelled India for the best recipes, playing online poker to pay the rent and selling and testing mooli as they went. They have brought back a passion for making their own fresh roti bread and so the mooli was born…

These moolis come in a choice of fillings: Keralan Beef, Goan Pork, Chicken & Apple, Asparagus & Cumin Potatoes and Scrambled Paneer, all with zesty salsas and chutneys. For cold days they have a couple of warming spicy soups which are available in small sizes providing an appetizing side order to a small mooli. All mooli’s are available in small sizes so you can mix and match and try more than one which is tempting.

Indian food is top of my favourite food list and I could eat it every day – the good thing about Mooli’s is that nothing seemed overladen with fat so I can indulge my passion without expanding my waistline too much. It’s affordable, freshly made and extremely tasty. I hope they expand as a chain frankly, as they would be a welcome addition to my local high street. And with mini moolis starting at £2.75, main moolis from £3.50 and mango lassi £2 a cup… I’d have no excuse not to visit regularly.
