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.

We had a very good meal. The food was well presented and tasty. The staff were very attentive and efficient. I would return in the future for another visit.
As usual, very welcoming, great food, can't get past the railway curry and fusion Kolcatta chicken. More than enough. Been back 3 weeks running - can't fault it!
Lovely food & excellent service, not your typical Indian menu - definately will be returning. Plenty of choice for everyone, lots of dishes to go back & try.
