In Liverpool when staying over with family we ate here once this was in 2006. The service we got at Madhari was something we was more than happy with. Tables were hard to find when coming here with a lively environment inside here. We had to wait a while before they placed us on a table here. It took them 10 minutes just to give a order menu to us to.
After placing our order the wait for the food took around 35 minutes here. The service was a acceptable as we was made aware that the food was coming and how long it would take. Chicken curry was just too tasty to eat and was made fresh. Their pitta breads and nans were so big and they could easily fill you up.
Soft drinks cost me the most here with a glass of just normal Orange juice being priced at 2.00! It was good food though and the bill total came over 65 pounds for 4 people. Blimey the food was good but the price was high a little too much.
I still happily paid for the food here because I enjoyed their food a lot. They make some very different chicken curry to other indian restaurants in Liverpool. The taste of their curry was just too good to every resist. I will come back here when I visit Liverpool again.
If you were to read the 2001 Good Curry Guide and scan through the Merseyside region, you would assume that this was a reasonable restaurant. The fact that the restaurant next door has been voted “The Best in the North” should not dissuade you from trying the Madhari – it is the most consistent Indian restaurant I’ve been to in my 9years in Liverpool. As you enter, the décor immediately impresses – dark blue carpets, smartly arranged tables with candles and a pleasant ambience. Again the downstairs toilets are spotless which I consider to be a reflection on the general attitude of the very friendly staff (I’m on first name terms now and have often left reflecting after philosophical conversations with the boss there). A good selection at the bar – standard draught bitter and lager are on offer, as is draught Cobra and Kingfisher. A good selection of wines and spirits is also on offer. But enough of the background – the idea is to eat here after all, so here are my views: The menu is comprehensive, with a larger than average “Specialities” section. I do tend to get the impression that they make more effort with these dishes than the “standard” dishes which would be my only criticism. The balti dishes are served in an unusual brass ‘pot’ which they claim to be the ‘true’ balti pans and it is a very good dish! A favourite of mine is the chicken chilli massala – not overly hot as one may expect but a very tangy, tomato based dish. The mixed korahi dishes are most impressive and for those not fond of the overtly spicy dishes, the mughlai is a mild, yet very tasty alternative. Rice and breads are excellent and there is a desert menu (although I prefer a short or another Cobra). Price: Well, I took my girlfriend on Valentines day and had popadoms, starter, 2 mains, rice, naan and about 4 pints of Cobra (that was between us, in case you’re wonde
ring) and got change from £30. That’s pretty good going, I think you’ll agree, and the food was very good. So give it a go!
