We visited Bari whilst on a family visit on the recommendation of several people we know and were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the staff friendly and attentive, they took the time to understand what type of food we wanted and make some recommendations which were absolutely spot on. The choice of food was amazing, with exotic meats... More

I went there for a Take Away one night, and he recommended me a sepeciality dish. What i received was a very average curry experience. Nothing special. However the manager is a very nice man, and he has a wide variety of exotic meats on his menu, so id say its a fun place to go for meal sitting in.

If you visit Carlisle you must treat yourself to a meal at the Bari. There is a superb variety of dishes on the menu. We were drawn to the Seafood and Fish section. At Mr.Bari's suggestion we shared two different monkfish dishes with two different rices. He guided us to taste particular combinations - magnificent. If he offers this extra... More

I have had about 20 meals in this restaurant. I have brought many friends to this restaurant. This restaurant is the best restaurant in Carlisle. Every meal I have had here has been fantastic. What more can I say? The chef knows his trade and the staff are amazing.

A great experience at Bari this evening. The host/chef was gracious and delightful. He advised us about menu choices and even did some taste testing showing us how different types of rice affect the flavour of food. The three of us enjoyed our meals and the whole experience, very much. I will be back on my next visit to Carlisle.

We visited Bari on Sunday night having been to watch the Christmas light switch on. We though everywhere would be heaving so went for a few drinks first and called in at around 8.30. There was only one other table and someone waiting for takeaway so we timed it right but amazed that it was so quiet as we've eaten... More

After the excellent reviews on here I thought Bari was definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately I was wrong. Our group of eight waited over an hour for our pre-booked table. When we finally did get seated, our food took another three quarters of an hour to arrive only to find that one of our groups order had failed to arrive.... More

Not sure how this restaurant rates so highly following our experience. Very poor quality fish served to a couple of our party and overall the food and portion sizes were disappointing. The only thing I think Bari does well are the Naan breads which were lovely. Many much better Indian restaurants in Carlisle
