We booked here for my grandson's 11th birthday celebration. It was a busy friday night, we were a large party of about 24, including 8 children, 3 of them toddlers in high chairs. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. It must have been so difficult for them because the restaurant was busy anyway. Food was delicious, served very efficiently.... More

I went with my partner and the service was brilliant. Popadoms was at out table as soon as we sat down. Then the waiter kept checking to see if we needed anything and when we was ready to order. The price was very cheap. We had guesses to see who was closest but we was both way over the actual... More

Ah, the pickle (Achari coming from the word achar or pickle) Its informal, relaxed dining experience is just perfect for us, we ate here on a bustling Saturday night, dare I say we were a "walk in" as a last minute call and a stuffy cold had me wanting something spicy! The staff, as always, friendly - smiles all round... More

In my middle age I have become frustrated at the number of higher quality Indian, Chinese and Thai restaurants catering for those wanting better than average cuisine. Bolton is full of Asian takeaways and in my decade I have been here, I've only found one I would use again. The restaurant scene is slightly different. There aren't that many and... More

We visited for Mothering Sunday. Booked a table for 5 people at 6pm. Seated promptly then promptly moved to another table. We ordered drinks and meals, had popadoms and then waited an hour for starters to arrive after asking where they were. We were in the restaurant for 3 hours in total. The kids were fed up as were the... More

This was the first time I had ever been to Achari and I must say the experience was a good one. From the moment I went in I was assaulted by an amazing sense of smell from the herbs and spices used in the cooking, and the staff going about serving hot food had my mouth watering. There were a...

Don't often think about reviewing a takeaway but this was definitely worth the effort. Superb quality and everything was absolutely delicious, would definitely recommend and will be returning.
