A great experience at Bari this evening. The host/chef was gracious and delightful. He advised us about menu choices and even did some taste testing showing us how different types of rice affect the flavour of food. The three of us enjoyed our meals and the whole experience, very much. I will be back on my next visit to Carlisle.

We visited Bari on Sunday night having been to watch the Christmas light switch on. We though everywhere would be heaving so went for a few drinks first and called in at around 8.30. There was only one other table and someone waiting for takeaway so we timed it right but amazed that it was so quiet as we've eaten... More

After the excellent reviews on here I thought Bari was definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately I was wrong. Our group of eight waited over an hour for our pre-booked table. When we finally did get seated, our food took another three quarters of an hour to arrive only to find that one of our groups order had failed to arrive.... More

Quite simply the best indian in town. The menu has a diverse selection of all indian food that you wont find in any other indian in town. The curry sauces are the nicest i have had anywhere a lot of effort has been put in to create these dishes. The staff are friendly and welcoming as is the owner. Highly... More

Not sure how this restaurant rates so highly following our experience. Very poor quality fish served to a couple of our party and overall the food and portion sizes were disappointing. The only thing I think Bari does well are the Naan breads which were lovely. Many much better Indian restaurants in Carlisle

Our friend had an excellent meal and was very pleased with the service so much so, that before we had... More

The owner/chef is very passionate about his food and is very knowledgeable. Two of us went on a Monday night so it was very quiet. When we ordered, Mr Bari made suggestions we hadn't considered before. I usually have lamb tikka as it's less likely to be fatty and I always have peas pilau rice. I was persuaded to try... More
