Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This was our venue for a family celebration of 20 guests and quite frankly the service was chaotic the Resturant seemed grossly under staffed for a busy Saturday night. They seemed totally unprepared for us and we'd had to book our food in advance. The naan breads are huge but the curry we had, when it eventually arrived, was average... More

We went here whilst visiting Carlisle . The food was great and the owner was a little eccentric with some great advice on menu choices! Definitely a recommendation!

Thought we would try somewhere different what a pleasant surprise. The food was amazing one of the best Indian meals I have had. The staff where very friendly and helpful with recommendations that make the food stand out from all other restaurants. Looking forward to my next visit, this has now become my favourite restaurant.

Visited with friends after my team had played Carlisle, food was excellent and staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome, chef even came out to our table giving advice on what rice to have with stronger curries.

6 of us staying in Carlisle for 2 weeks and unfortunately discovered this as we were going home because we would have eaten here every night! By far the best meal from our entire stay. Great value for money, staff are so lovely, the food is ON POINT. Between the 6 of us we had about 10 dishes and they... More

You sometimes get a slightly cool reception here, especially if you say you are short of time e.g. going to see something at Sands Centre. However, I believe it's a dry sense of humour and you should just roll with it. The restaurant is fairly nicely looked after with a lot of seemingly self painted murals. The food though, absolutely... More

Always a fantastic curry from the Bari Restaurant. Abdul's helpful advice is always welcomed. His vast friendly knowledge is fantastic, he is always keen to recommend suitable dishes as per your taste. He also recommends best quantities to order so not to overfill your table with excess food. Nothing is too much trouble!! 5*

I'd not been here for a while and thought I would have something different to what normally have. I started with prawn puri, extra hot which was as good as ever. I have always shied away from fish curries but tonight I decided to try the Goan swordfish curry. Mr Bari advised me that it would not be advisable to... More
