About Masala Bazaar

Carlisle is a long way from Kolkata and Chennai, but in the town centre, one can find an authentic taste of India. On Botchergate, just across from the main train station, there is Masala Bazaar, an Indian restaurant with an emphasis on the street food traditions of the many states and cities of the subcontinent, with diverse dishes that are not regularly seen elsewhere. We’d recommend the sizzler selection, served with no little drama at your table, featuring grilled meats such as Scottish salmon, lamb chops, king prawns and more. The house specialties at Masala Bazaar are equally as decadent, with venison vindaloo, pork chop bhooni and duck coated with spices and seared in the pan. They have plenty of the classics of the Indian curry tradition – as well as plenty of vegetarian dishes – so all of your party can try out their favourites, whether they are newbies or curry cognoscenti. Book a table now to reserve the best seat in Carlisle town centre.

This is not your usual indian restaurant with the same old menu. The Masal Bazaar offers a selection of dishes I've never seen before and to top it all the food lived up to my expectations. All of us enjoyed our meal. Believe me, give it try, you won't be disappointed. The service was excellent and the staff very attentive without being intrusive.

Excellent service, the venue was nicely decorated to a high standard and our party thought that the food was the best Indian cuisine we have ever tasted. Looking forward to going back.

The restaurant is central to the shops,pubs and other restaurants.Its modern and airy,plenty of space between tables.The staff were friendly and we were served promptly.However the food was a let down,we couldn't detect any spices,garlic,ginger or chilli,the word bland will adequately describe all the dishes we had,the only item we enjoyed were the naan breads,which were large and very tasty. Would not return as we both enjoy spicy food and that's just didn't get delivered.

Great food, with many dishes not seen at the average "Indian" restaurant. If we visit Carlisle again, we will definitely return to the Masala Bazaar.

Service and welcome was good. Food seemed high quality but was lacking in spice. My meal was rated 2 chillies a friends was rated 3. Both dishes had zero spice. I'm not big on how hot chillies are but it was almost like they had forgotten to add the chillies. Other than that the food was good.

Good attentive staff who were very helpful. Portions quite large but very tasty, would recommend the soup as a starter and the biriyani as a main. Overall a very nice experience.
