Excellent selection of tasty food with great service. The manager is great fun too, taking time to advise on the perfect combinations to make the dining experience more pleasurable. He is also willing to make a dish to a diner's personal preference, and did so on our recent visit.

The food in this restaurant really is to die for. We were a party of 7, and every one of us said it was the best Indian food they'd ever had. The owner is the chef, and he is really passionate about food and making sure his diners enjoy themselves. Prices reasonable, service excellent. Can't wait to go again.

Great service from all of the staff. We were even educated on which sauce to use for what, in my case tandoori trout, which I had ordered with sag-aloo (potatoes with spinach and spices). Food was absolutely delicious. The naan bread served could have fed a family of four and was the tastiest I had so far. Well done to... More

We've been to the Bari twice now and both times have been brilliant. The service is quick and so friendly, you instantly feel welcome. My husband loves Indian food, but I only like a few things so I wasn't expecting it to become one of our favourites. Instead, it set the bar for the best Indian food around. During our... More

Made very welcome and the owner advised of food to have and how to compliment it with other foods. Excellent range of tandoori dishes and had the mixed dish. Plenty of meat. Roti tandoori are huge. Naan breads are huge and very well cooked. The party of 4 were more than happy with well presented and well priced food. Would... More

I had a wonderful meal tonight. A very bespoke meal was made for me to introduce me to the wonders of Indian food. Wonderful atmosphere and fantastic owners who go out of their way to advise you on best meals. Will definitely be back for more.

I have been going to curry houses all over the world for over forty years and this is one of the best. The owner really shows pride in his considerable skills and is more than happy to discuss the finer points of spices etc to prepare a dish that you will love. Great value for money - we live out...

Visited here last night with family and had an enjoyable experience. The staff were very accommodating for the fussy eating members of the group who go to an Indian restaurant and say they do not want a curry!! However the chef came up trumps and even came out to see if the produced meal was satisfactory. HUGE naan breads which... More
