You might have read my most recent post on another indian restaurant in Chester which is probably the highest scored but Karai Lounge is miles better. Nice ambience and well lit. Food was excellent. 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.

We haven't been to this restaurant for over 15 years and the food was still top quality. The staff are polite and not intrusive. W were greeted and a candle lit at our table. We had plenty of time to peruse the menu and we ordered a drink and poppadoms to begin. Non greasy with a choice of four chutneys.... More

This place is the best Indian in town! Excellent, attentive service with every visit, and we especially appreciate the quorn curry option for the vegetarians! Tasty food all round and good value for money. Deliveries are always delivered promptly and taste just as good!

As a visitor to Chester I randomly selected Karai Lounge for my home delivery meal. It was excellent. Ordering on the phone, I got prompt delivery - hot (not tepid!!) food; good size portions; and good quality freshly cooked dishes. Exactly what I wanted and reasonably priced.

The All Day Buffet on a Sunday was exactly what we expected. A good choice of starters and main courses kept fresh and in plentiful supply. There is a good selection for vegetarians too. We noticed the staff check the steam vapour often, always a good sign to keep the water from the hot food and diluting the taste as... More
