Really good curry

Popped in for a midweek tea. Friendly staff, good service, very pleasant white wine and excellent food. Good menu and reasonably priced. We'll definitely come again.

We have been to the Cafe Naj many times on a Sunday for they're banquet. Why? Because the quality of the food and service are excellent. The chef really is the best Indian chef in Chester. £8.95 is also great value. Always find the service fast and friendly. Only two small negatives, the door opens straight onto Hoole Road so...

Being on the end of my street Cafe Naj is average at best. The only saving grace for this place is the generally dire standard of Indian food available in Chester. It's not great, but not dreadful, although I can't bring myself to go back having once found a very suspicious looking curly black hair in my biriani takeaway.

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.

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... More

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.
