“A really good curry delivered promptly”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

As a visitor to Chester I randomly selected Karai Lounge for my home delivery meal. It was excellent. Ordering on the phone, I got prompt delivery - hot (not tepid!!) food; good size portions; and good quality freshly cooked dishes. Exactly what I wanted and reasonably priced.

“Good Quality Buffet”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

The All Day Buffet on a Sunday was exactly what we expected. A good choice of starters and main courses kept fresh and in plentiful supply. There is a good selection for vegetarians too.
We noticed the staff check the steam vapour often, always a good sign to keep the water from the hot food and diluting the taste as so many poorly managed buffets do.
The only fault was that the fixed price was not displayed but we knew it would be around the £8.00 mark (it was £8.95 pp) but it should be displayed of course

“Nice”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Went for dinner on Saturday night. Good staff, nice food and reasonably priced. Had the kebab starter, chicken tikka vindaloo and a chicken korma all of which were cooked to perfection and very tasty. All in all a very good experience and would recommend

“Good Sunday Buffet”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

We decided to try here while returning to the station from our annual Christmas visit to Chester as our previous Indian had declining recent reviews. It was a quiet Sunday evening and we were welcomed by the waiter showing us to a table and explaining the Sunday buffet at £8.95. We were brought the usual poppadoms and selected some starters. We had the choice of 6 meat curries and 2 vegetarian and tried a little of the two medium and two hot ones and a little saag aloo, all perfectly acceptable, we particularly liked the lamb naga, very tasty but not mind-numbingly hot, the others were well flavoured too. A little fresh fruit to finish and we agreed it had been a worthwhile visit. The curries may not be up to the standard of some Indian cookery aficionados but suited us fine as a buffet was excellent value.
The restaurant itself was spacious, nicely decorated and clean throughout, the staff were very pleasant and all in all I would recommend.

“A very tasty and enjoyable curry”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I have been to the Karai Lounge a couple of times before, when visiting Chester, so it made complete sense to visit again whilst I was in the City, Friday night.

The restaurant was surprisingly quiet, in fact at one point there was only me and my partner in, I can only presume that this restaurant gets early trade, from the shoppers, when the shops shut at 6.

The restaurant was clean and well presented and the waiting staff (unsurprisingly) were attentive.

The menu was extensive with lots of choice, meat, fish and vegetarian dishes were all well covered.

We had popodoms and chutney tray to start with, followed by mains of Vegetable Samba & Chicken Bengal, accompanied by saag paneer, coconut rice & cheesy garlic naan followed by cherry and vanilla ice cream.

I have to say it was absolutely delicious and would definitely recommend the Karai Lounge to any one visiting Chester.
