In the words of a cumbrian... Cushty

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a very nice meal at the Bari restaurant. However they did forget the naan that was the only problem. Staff were pleasant and a good main dish so their wasn't much to complain about. Maybe the madras could of been hotter! Would recommend! Thanks.

One of the best curry's I've had. Where else do you get kangaroo and camel curry? Superb naan and big Cobras. Class chef... Curries made to order.

We regularly eat at BARI'S which we consider to be the 'jewel in the crown' of Indian restaurants in Carlisle. There is always a warm welcome from both Bari and his wife (looking resplendent in her traditional dress !). We have had many Indian meals at a variety of places as well as a top rated one in London -... More

Been here several times and as always the food was excellent. Service very good but we were embarrassed by the way the owner spoke to a member of his staff tonight. Totally rude and very unnecessary. Spoiled my evening.

Had a meal here with friends, there were six of us and we all really enjoyed our meals. In therms of starters the choice was good with some different options other than the usual samosa and onion bhaji - the sea bass and the mussels were great. The mains were excellent, the naans as others have mentioned are enormous but... More

Came here with my mam and dad non NYE for a family meal after seeing the great reviews on here. I'm not a massive Indian eater but I thoroughly enjoyed my tikka masala with chips and rice and the garlic naan is amazing - word of warning they absolutely massive one will feed three people no problem!

The food was very good but the welcome from the staff left a lot to be desired. Even though we'd booked a table, we were left waiting only to then be shown to a table covered in hair and crumbs. We asked about what we could have the exotic meats with and the member of staff couldn't tell us. None... More

This restaurant's unique selling point is the wide variety of meats on offer:- ostrich, bison, kangaroo and mouflon to name but a few. The owner is very friendly and will recommend both the meats to go with the curry and the accompanying rice/naans. Very enjoyable and spicy meal.
