A fantastic find.

We were searching Carlisle for something to eat and we stumbled across a great smell. We followed our noses and came across Bari. The service was fantastic as was the food. Very tasty and plentiful dishes accompanied by one of the largest Naan breads we've ever seen.

. Dinned here again.. Food and service were great.. I had a mixed kebab special and my partner had a balti.. Both dishes were more than satisfactory in presentation,taste and portion size. Both dishes came with complementary Naan bred which are huge and one would of been enough. Cant fault the food - will be back soon.

Visited last night after reading other reviews and can only concur that it is indeed a very good curry house.

this is only our second visit but vowed to come back after the first one , the food is first class , the meats used in the dishes are not the average tough dry meats as is other restaurants in carlisle. and the naans are out of this world !! will be a regular haunt for us.

My partner and I took a couple of friends last night for a meal last night, and the only problem was that they do not do chilli or anything hot at all. Mr Bari was explained this and he said he would cater to their tastes. They ordered prawn puris for starters which were made with plenty of flavour and... More

Great meal and service as usual. Lovely atmosphere and top quality Indian meals with the weirdest selection of meats but my boyfriend loves it. He had kangaroo curry and I had the tikka masala. Would say is a good place for couples.

Having lived in Carlisle for over 20 years I have never visited the Bari before as it looks uninviting from the outside however I have now been twice in a fortnight!
