Enjoyable yet flawed

Had an early meal on a Sunday. One waiter that was not exactly bursting with hospitality (shame). Ambiance nice though, typical music, suitable decor. Food above average, ordered the 'dal makhani' waiter asked if we were sure we wanted to order it as we might not like it !?! ( nor sure how he... read more

This restaurant has to be my favourite in Cumbria for an Indian curry! The manager came to speak to us to help us choose which dishes and rice went best together and to tailor the spice to everyone's needs. The naan breads are always huge and taste lovely! My favourite curry has to be the garlic chicken chilli masala, can't... More

We went here based upon the reviews assuming this would a fantastic meal. Staff were surly, poppadoms were soft and bendy, starters and main courses were fine but by no means excellent, I would say they were just VERY avearge. The waiting staff forgot items, repeatedly, and literally threw dishes onto the table, and when being cleared away, pointed at... More

It's been a while since I'd visited but as I was accompanied by friends of Bari, a warm welcome awaited us and the service was great. The food was still of the great high standard, and we were happy to let Bari choose our dishes. He brought us four curries with an assortment of red meats - llama, springbok, kangaroo... More

Oh TA, it feels like we've been let down for the first time; after travelling from Manchester to Scotland, Carlisle looked like a good halfway house & the Bari had received a suitably high rating to encourage us in, but we were not happy with what we found. With only one other set of diners (going from Scotland to Manchester... More

Second time I have eaten here. Was going to order in at home but the option to have a korma here agin was far to tempting. Quick service, lovely atmosphere and great staff.
