Solid Indian eatery

There are so many Indian restaurants in Chester. I think this place is amongst the best. The food and service is excellent. I prefer hot dishes and don't struggle to order here - I do at other Indians (that are equally as good) close by.

OK here we go. Have dined here twice. Previously al la carte which was good. Choice of food excellent, well spiced etc and quite good value. Returned on Sunday wow what a difference. We had the buffet. Probably one of the poorest we've seen. Starters were a mixed bag. Chicken chatt OK, chicken pakora was over cooked as were the... More

I have eaten curries all over the UK. The two best restaurants i have tried are the Maharani resturant in Clapham and this one. The chefs at these two restaurants make the best Indian food. Maharani makes well cooked, interesting dishes. However, Karai Lounge have got me because i salavate at the thought of eating their food. My only advice... More

Got takeaway for two and it was ready 20 mins after ordering for collection. The food was very good quality and I would certainly try eating in next time as the restaurant looked nice.

Have sampled a number of Indian restaurants in Chester and not had a bad one yet, I've had better but it was still enjoyable. The service was good and all the staff friendly and polite, wasn't very busy so not much of an atmosphere. But that didn't stop any of us from enjoying the food, worth a visit.

Looking for a new place to eat curry in Chester. Really nice food, good service and a modern look. Good portions, excellent choice and plenty of room. Only minus was the lamb curry, could have been more tender.

We were visiting Chester for a couple of days and saw this place on our travels. The staff were very polite and welcoming and the food was excellent and very flavoursome. I had a chicken tikka karai and my wife had a chicken biryani. The food was served promptly and very well presented. The sundries such as poppadoms and naan... More

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.
