Although I've reviewed Achari before, I felt that it needed another. Sunday night & packed. Go to the web site for details of the deal. Service is fantastic, a few new faces. Welcomed as old friends. Food even better, if possible. Great night. Great value for money.

Never fails to disappoint us! I've been in for a few sit down meals including when I first moved to the area and since then birthdays and girlie catch ups... Mostly it's a well deserved weekend takeaway and we love it! Excellent food and lovely friendly staff!! See you again at weekend no doubt haha...

Having eaten at many Indian restaurants, I can honestly say that, in my opinion, this is the best in Bolton. The food and service are excellent - staff are friendly and attentive without being over-familiar. The restaurant is always busy but you are not rushed or herded in and out like cattle (as we have felt to be the case... More

We enjoyed another good meal at Achari. They do very good food and the service is great too. We usually come here to relax after a busy week at work and always enjoy it.

My two daughters have raved about this restaurant for some time and we wanted a family take away. Although the location of the restaurant looks a bit dodgy ( imagine a mini King's Cross before all the recent redevelopment ) inside was beautiful and full at 7 o'clock on a beautiful Sunday Evening. The restaurant is clearly well organised and... More

We only came here as it was in the hi life book. Came on a weds night - wasn't busy but we didn't feel awkward in a really quiet restaurant - staff attentive and efficient and most importantly - food was really really nice. Definitely be back.
