Been a while since I had visited on a Sunday due to work commitments, still doing the special which is a great offer. Couldn't fault anything, all the food was lovely, the anchanok Balti was superb. Staff as pleasant as ever. Be back soon.

This was my visit to Achari and came on recommendation. The interior decor didn't initially do much for me. I ordered poppadoms and pickle selection. You can select which pickles you want as they are priced separately, it's a great idea and proved to be a good choice. For main I had a medium hot dish recommended by the very... More

Friends and I come here regularly and it is always spot on, without fail. Nice atmosphere, great choice of curries, excellent quality food and attentive staff. Conveniently located right next to Bolton train station, so you can enjoy a couple of Cobras with your food if you wish. I recommend the fish tikka.

Not often we get out together alone so we want to make the most of it. This is the best Indian I know. Service is great... they can't do enough. Comfy seats and modern decor. Best pint of cobra I've tasted and food is second to none. Can't beat it. Mmmmmmmmmm

By far one of the best restaurants in Bolton and I've been to so many. Service was excellent, restaurant was extremely clean and the food was the best ever. So fresh and mouth watering. Came here with a group of 10 girls and all walked out feeling completely satisfied and prices were reasonable too. Excellent restaurant. Going back next week.
