Still going strong!

Returning to Carlisle after several years absence - good to see that this unassuming restaurant is still popular and still serving good food.

Arrived at 6.30, thinking we might be the only customers but got to the top of the stairs to find quite a few waiting for a table. They are superbly efficient though. There is a big seating area, where they serve your drink of choice while you peruse the menu., and order. When a table is free, the waiter takes... More

I'm a regular at Rafiks in Carlisle but finding it closed one Tuesday a couple of friends and I tried this place. I should have been warned by the empty tables but perservered. I dont usually have starters but the companies love of popadoms forced me to suffer one. The glorified crisps tasted sour so one mouthful was enough and... More

I have been here once before when visiting and when it was suggested we go there for a meal, I relished the idea. The décor and furnishings date from the 1980s, which suits me fine as I would like to remain there :-) it was very busy (08:00) with local people and we were quite happy to sit in the... More

I've been coming to this restaurant for years and I think it's brilliant. The food is amazing and their pakora are better than anywhere else I've tried. I've had many of their dishes and once asked if the chef could make a dish that wasn't on the menu which he did and they've all been fantastic! And the coffee is... More

The best tandoori chicken I've ever tasted and a nice feel to the restaurant although it was very quiet as it was a week day. Good staff and good food what more do you want.

We called in to the Stanwix Tandoori prior to going to a late screening at the cinema. We were warmly welcomed, waited in reception whilst our order was taken. Drinks were promptly brought and we were shown to our table which was located in individual booths. This is a really nice touch as it gives some privacy in dining although... More
