Prompted to go to this restaurant having seen reviews here, my wife and I went there this evening before going to a gig at the Sands. Having been forewarned we ordered a single Peshwari naan and shared a bowl of pilau rice with our Chicken Korma and Chicken tikka Jalfrezi. The naan was very big and beautifully tasty, whilst the...

Absolutely top notch. Probably the best curry we've had anywhere in the country. Great quality food, wonderful service and such attention to detail and care. It's not just food, it's a passion for Bari. Could not recommend highly enough.

This is simply the best curry I've eaten. The staff are wonderfully accommodating, the food is divine, the chef advised us on how and why to eat certain things and the whole experience was a delight. Added to this, the restaurant stayed open for us as we finished work late. I can not describe how wonderful this place is. I... More

Carlisle's hidden gem. This is a superb curry house it is away from the bars so a short walk to find it from Botchergate. The owner is very friendly and is knowledge of food and how different curry's and rices go together is spot on. I will definitely be going again. Don't miss it well worth a visit.

I haven't eaten here for many years, so when another local Indian restaurant was full tonight, I booked a table here. We were welcomed by a lovely friendly female (very unusual, but a pleasant change from having waiters) then were shown to our table where my friend and I spent ages chatting over what to eat! We never felt rushed.... More
