We had a good 2 course meal on a fairly busy Friday night. We both had a chicken starter which was very tasty but the mains were better still. The nan was huge and very light - one between the two of us was enough and the Camel curry was really tasty and spicy. We thought the daal was the... More

We had an early Sunday dinner here, service adequate, though had two fish curries neither of which blew us away. They were good, but I was expecting more delicate layers of flavour. Seafood platter was fine though I would not have put a spiced potato pakora as one of three types of 'seafood' on offer. South African Pinotage well-priced, but... More

I have eaten at the Bari 10-15 times since moving to Carlisle last year, and it has never disappointed. The lamb Dhansak takeaway I had recently was the best curry I'd had in a long time - perfectly spiced sauce with just the right texture from the lentils, meltingly tender lamb and great rice and nan. I used to live... More

All the curry taste similar and not fresh. My family was sick next day. Would definitely not recommend it.

By far the best Indian food I've ever had and such a lovely atmosphere. I would recommend for anyone to go here for a meal, I've only been with family... Intend on bringing my friends too

My husband and I have had many Indian meals at restaurants throughout New York City, San Francisco, London etc. and Bari is the BEST we have come across. We were not expecting to find such amazing Indian food in the north of England so we were pleasantly surprised. Don't miss this place if you are in Carlisle!!!!

As someone once told me never eat in a quiet restaurant , does not apply here. We arrived at in that no mans land around 5.45pm , we shared a very tasty mixed starter platter and we both plumped for a chicken tikka jalfrezi which was also very good , reasonable service if maybe a tad pricey . For sure... More

Second time visiting this restaurant last month within the last couple of years - Tends to be a place we go for a 'different' Indian as they have a different style menu to many others in Carlisle. They have the classics but have some very enjoyable specials which we tend to have went with both times. This time we had... More
