Boiled rice it is!

Bari gave us a tutorial on selecting the right kind of rice to go with our curries - and he was absolutely right! The food was really lovely and yes, Bari, we will be having plain, boiled rice the next time we order a Madras! Thank you xxxx

I visited Bari with friends. We had been there for 1 and a half hours before we got our food. The service was terrible and we actually had to ask where our food was and how long it would be. At the end of the night we were told they had staffing problems, letting us know there was going to... More

Last night I visited Bari for a third time. The first one,together with friends some time ago,was such an experience that I took my husband,and another group of friends there as a surprise birthday treat for him.Success. He loved it. So much so that he wrote a review of praise immediately afterwards. Now it's my turn. I have never been... More

I was reluctant to revisit this restaurant after a poor experience previously. My friends insist it is the best restaurant of it's type in the area & as they were organising a night out I felt obliged to accompany them albeit with a little trepidation. All I can say is wow! Without doubt I have had one of the best... More

I've been to Bari many times. I've never had anything other than a briliant curry. In particular, I'd recommend any one of the exotic meats which lend themselves very well to being curried.

I had only been once to this restaurant years ago but we were taken by friends and loved it! The food was delicious and the menu is explained and you are recommended dishes and what complements what. Very educational! The owner/ chef was very friendly and helpful.

We recently spent 6 days in Carlisle and enjoyed two dinners at Bari Restaurant. Our first meal was SO DELICIOUS that we booked another table for a few nights later before we left the restaurant on the first night. What a gem! The owner/chef was incredibly helpful in terms of not only selecting our dishes but also in giving us... More

One of the best Indian/Bangladeshi takeaways I've ever had. Would thoroughly recommend. Look forward to having a meal in the restaurant also.
