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

I suspect we had the misfortune of visiting the restaurant on the same night as the party of 10 ( see earlier 2star review). Whilst the food was of a very good standard and appropriately priced, the evening was slightly spoiled by a very drunk and raucous party of 10 who may not have been in the best frame of... More

I have been to Bari a number of times and every time the food has been first class. The best Indian food in Carlisle I think. The chef/owner is a bit quirky and chatty but I have always enjoyed this but i know from past experiences it can annoy some people! Lovely food, pleasant surroundings. My only slight criticism is...
