We went eatly in the evening and it was very quiet but a lot of people were arriving as the evening progressed. Great food and... read more

We got a takeaway from Karai lounge after a very long day driving, I was delighted to see Quorn as an option for curry, I am annoyingly fussy and don't like mushrooms which tend to be the base for a lot of vegetable curries so it was great to have the choice of something different. The whole meal was delicious... More

We get deliveries from here about once every 3-4 weeks. It is superb. Their poppadoms are thin and crisp, beautiful soft naan. The curries are tasty and packed full of chunky meat. Recommend highly!

Went to the Sunday Buffet and was extremely let down. The mint yoghurt tasted like it had gone sour (and the rest of the dips with the poppadoms were average). The buffet was very small and tasted bland and the meat was chewy - on par with something you'd buy from iceland. Dessert left much to be desired. Staff were... More

Me and my partner visited here after a day out in chester. It was recommended by a friend so we thought we would give it a try. The atmosphere was quiet but relaxed. The food arrived quickly and wasn't disappointed at all. The portions weren't huge but definitely enough of you are ordering sides as well. Staff were really friendly... More

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.
