Ordered a takeaway from this restaurant , chicken garlic with chilli and a cheese naan and no rice and the price came to £9.25, the food was nothing special but ok . But I'll not be rushing back for a takeaway at that price especially when I didn't even receive a free complimentary poppadom .

Above a row of shops on Scotland Road, so disabled access may be awkward. Met at door and sat in bar area where order was taken by a very cheerful friendly waiter. No starters we'd had a sharing platter in Walkabout in town (review to follow). I had Shahi Shatkora (limes), very tasty, lady wife the Garlic tandoori chicken, again... More

After a long drive from Bedfordshire, our host at the Marlborough House B&B recommended Stanwix Tandoori. We weren't disappointed. Excellent, friendly service and an extensive and interesting menu. The food came out quickly, was beautifully presented, piping hot and full of flavour. We arrived at 18:30 and the restaurant filled up really quickly with couples and groups, some of whom... More

A nice fairly small and intimate Indian Restaurant, all the usual dishes on offer with good attentive service.

This restaurant has been around for over 35 years, and they know what they are doing. You like Indian food, they will provide it and give good service.

Another enjoyable meal here last month. Was staying in Carlisle for weekend with relatives who eat here most weeks. All the staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent and they gave me a small taster dish to see if I would like it for a future visit. The food is tasty and plentiful and... More

You could easily walk past this restaurant, as the entrance at street level is far from imposing. Flaking paint and a worn carpet lead up to the first floor, but all changes when you enter what is quite an impressive lay out. I had the best Tandoori I have eaten anywhere, and all side dishes were of exceptional quality, and... More

We have been here many times over the years and the food is always excellent, the staff are always very friendly and helpful. We have tried other Indians in Carlisle, but none are as good as Stanwix. Well worth a visit.

I went here on the recommendation of my B&B hosts and I'm glad I did. They seemed pleased to have me visit, served me politely and efficiently, and the food was all I could have hoped for. It was a traditional Indian menu, well prepared and served. As a solo traveller I am particularly keen on prompt service and I... More
