Surprise

We were staying one night in Chester in Hoole Road and went in search of something to eat. After looking at a Chinese menu on the way into town we carried on as the prices were a bit high for us (I'm sure the food would have been excellent) and saw the sign of Cafe Naj. We had a laugh... read more

Although the place is quite small and the ambience not so great with a busy road outside , the food makes up for it. The service is also good with a friendly staff. The vindaloo curry is good. Overall ok if you are looking for a quick decent meal.

I don't usually visit the same restaurant unless it is exceptional but this was so good we went back again the next day. The menu is easy to understand and is quite large. Good cold Cobra beer and great service from our waiter. 30 pound for two. Great food.

Visited on a Saturday evening, service was excellent. The food was amazing, cooked exactly to order and the meat was good quality. The whole meal came in under £30. Will definitely be returning!

Hard to find a spicy, flavourful curry around here, but this unassuming little restaurant is the best one I've had.

Visited with some friends I had visited, decided on Cafe Naj because of the good reviews on here and we weren't disappointed. Popadums and chutney tray were excellent, starters were good value, only 4 pieces of lamb for the lamb tikka, but the onion bhaji and the prawn puri were very good. Main courses were very good too, I had... More

Located on the edge of Hoole as you come into the City Centre of Chester this restaurant is well worth a visit as it has an extensive and exciting menu - some 20 starters, 6 tandoori specials, a host of Chef's Special Delight and all the other Bhuna, Balti, Cylon, Dhansak and Madras etc. dishes. My favourite is the Naga... More

... by the name (it's not a cafe) or by the outside (it looks like a cafe). The food is great and the service and staff are exceptional. The other good reviews on here are well deserved.

A lovely meal with lots of different things on the menu. Staff very helpful and attentive. Meal excellent just as we had read on other reviews. Would certainly go again when we come to Chester again. Highly recommend a visit.
