Good little curry house on the far side of Hoole Bridge in Chester, ideally placed for City guests staying in the Hoole Road hotels. Friendly service, good quality food and all at reasonable prices it's well worth dropping in either for a meal straight after work or for a more formal night out

My husband and I are regulars at the Café Naj, and it has never let us down. You are welcomed warmly, and service overall is excellent. The food is very good, and seemed to me on our visit this week to have spiced up a bit, although we were assured the chef was the same chef. I can recommend the... More

This is a great place to eat. Staff are friendly and welcoming and service is good. We had the set deal for two, which is good value for money. Starters were delicious and tasty as were the mains. Chicken is tender and cut into large chunks and the sauces are rich, without being overpowering. The Bhuna could have done with... More

Our second visit within 2 months and the service and quality is still very high. The starters are incredible as are the mains. They always ask how you would like your food (always important for me in terms of spice) and they really do care about your experience. I would recommend this Indian for value and old fashioned service.

Had a very poor takeaway from Cafe Naj on Saturday 23rd Nov 2013. I had a King Prawn Curry. The sauce was very thin with only a few prawns in. My husband had a Passandra which was equally thin. Tasteless. Very disappointed.

I've known of this Indian restaurant for some time now but had never visited. The welcome was lovely and the staff very attentive at all times. The food was on time and absolutely delicious. We both had Balti dishes for our main, one chicken tikka and the other a lamb, and they were better than we could have imagined. There... More

Café Naj was walking distance from our hotel Stone Villa, so we called in for dinner. In spite of what one reviewer has written, the service was excellent with a very friendly and attentive waiter. I had the best Indian dish I have ever had, it was Lamb Pudina Shibpuri. First time I've seen that on a menu. The Nan... More

Having recently moved to chester and on reading the other reviews, I was looking forward to a decent curry. Unfortunately our experience was not good! The service on the night our party of 5 visited was poor and the food (being generous) was average. We booked our table in advance having been advised by others that seating is limited. Having...

Cafe Naj is easily one of the best restaurants in Chester. They have a wonderful menu offering great Bangladeshi cuisine. The staff are extremely friendly and the food is great value for money. If you're in Chester and need a good curry, this place is a must!

There is little different that I can add to some of the comments already given, other than to say that it is the first time that I can remember my wife ever eating every bit of her meal - she always usually leaves something, but not here. The staff (including a trainee) were extremely attentive and the food was First... More
