Lovely food

In a group of about 20, we were very well looked after by the staff. They were very friendly and the service was well paced. I had chicken korma with plain rice and naan bread and everything about the food was lovely. Good portions and tasty food.

We're a local Chester couple who have visited allot of restaurants in Chester and I have to say that the Karai Lounge is one of the best if not the best Indian in Chester. We visited there again last night and was welcomed with a smile and directed to our table. The service was quick, the food absolutely perfect and... More

Very disapointed after reading the reviews and ordering a take away. It took an hour and 20 mins to arrive and 2 telephone calls later. The delivery driver then rang me for directions which i gave and then had to walk down a busy road no footpath to collect the food by then was cold and tasteless, never again... awful.

Been to this restaurant twice, the first time the service was very slow and the food bland, and the second time we had our starters then waited and waited and waited a bit longer before paying for what we had and left, we were the only ones in there, they were more interested in getting the takeaway orders sorted and...

The food here is just brilliant, personal I think it is the best Indian restaurant in Chester. However the service is a bit poor because I had to stand up or go to the bar myself in order to get a staff, but apart from that it was brilliant!

Three of us had poppadoms and chutneys etc. Three chicken tikka dishes in patia, karahi and one that I've forgotten lol. One rice, peshwari nan and... More

Some friends brought us here one Sunday afternoon for the buffet. They are new to curry so this place is great to them. Having grown up with curry all my life I found this place a bit insulting. There was a chose of a few curries, 1 was labled "chicken madras", it wasn't, it was a bright red korma. Then... More

Indian being our favorite food we have eaten in MANY restaurants. We found this one to be very average. No doubt the onion bhajis were lovely and the poppadoms fresh and crisp. However the accompanying dips were watery and unappealing. The rice and nann bread were good but unfortunately the main curries were very disappointing, lacking any depth of flavor... More

The service was really quick and we got our food about 10 minutes after ordering. Staff were friendly and attentive. Food itself was nice. Near to town centre and train station and worth a visit.
