Excellent food, my favourite curries come from this gem of a restaurant. Never had better and I've had a few. Definitely worth trying the exotic meats. 10/10.

Had poppadums and pickles to start....all fine....then an excellent lamb madras....lamb was cooked to perfection and just fell apart, basmati boiled rice and a nice side dish of mushroom bahji with one hot, moist and flaky chappati.

My date and I wanted to try out Indian food and decided to try out Bari Restaurant. The atmosphere gave it a unique Indian feel and the food was even better. We liked how prompt and friendly the service was and even better was that the prices were within our means. Kudos and we hope to come back!

I am always up for new dining experiences so i decided to try out Bari restaurant in Carlisle. I loved the Indian food and the ambiance was great! The customer service was also very friendly and prompt and the price for food was also quite reasonable. Keep up and I can't wait to be back! :-)

We visited on the 16th of December 2016 for my dad 59th birthday. Food was fantastic and service was okay. My mum and dad who've not had Indian before loved it. The service could be one level higher. My dad had onion bhajis, chicken tikka masala with pilau rice, he said it was spot on.

We were in Carlisle for one night and found this place thanks to a Tripadvisor search. Bari is a three minute walk from the Crown and Mitre in the centre of Carlisle. The venue is clean and modern. The food was fantastic. The waitress seemed a little disappointed that we did not try the more adventurous dishes like kangaroo or... More

I used to visit Bari frequently, though haven't been for a while as I was disappointed last time due to poor service and small portions. On this occasion, I enjoyed the meal much more - the lamb dish was tender and beautifully flavoured. Service was much more efficient and friendly. Portions are still lacking perhaps - smaller than you might... More
