Myself and my friend Rauf went to the Bari Restaurant on the evening of 27-May-2015, My friend recommended we go there, the meal we had was the best Indian meal I have had for a very long while and the owner a pleasure to meet. I live in the midlands with many Indian restaurants but the Bari beat them alll.... 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. Each time we have been the owner has come to speak to us at our table and has recommended which rice/meat to have with our dishes, great... More

My lamb vindaloo was cooked using succulent pieces of meat in a sauce which, though very spicy, possessed a certain delicacy. Although I have loved this dish for years, the proprietor helpfully (and rightly) criticized my choice of rice and put me straight; wish I'd known years ago that boiled rice was the proper accompaniment, not mushroom pilau! Superb. The... More

Our first visit to ' BARI ' proved to be a revelation to us - a gem of a find. It soon became noticeable that here we had a really well run establishment. Warm and welcoming, we were immediately at ease amongst attentive staff - the waiters deserve special praise for their smartness as well as for their first rate... More

Food: food is average. Nothing overwhelming considering it is a restaurant. Service: Awful service. Owners wife seems to walk around with a cup of tea in her hand and biscuits to dip in it. She was the only waitress. She was wearing the clothes that she wears at home. No manners what so ever. The restaurant was pretty much like... More

I have visited the Bari several times and i have always been well impressed, I have never had a bad meal here, There are several exotic curries that you do not find in other Indian restaurants, My favourite are the lamb dishes as the meat is always melt in the mouth, but the Venison is also fantastic. Make sure you... More
