About Achari
BUSINESS is booming at Achari, so be sure to book your seat to sample the restaurant's tantalising menu, showcasing the finest of Indian cuisine, cooked to authentic family recipes.The venue underwent a £100,000 extension and makeover in February 2004, building on the success of the former Curry world takeaway owned and operated by the Achari management team.

Achari takes its name from Achar, the pickle which is traditionally the centrepiece to the Indian family dinner table. It is this sense of family hospitality that Achari hopes to bring to the restaurant, where the emphasis is on an informal, relaxed dining experience.

A reasonably-priced menu features a combination of both popular Indian dishes, and Achari's house specialities. The helpful menu includes details of ingredients and the method of cooking, making it easy for you to decide which to choose.

Starters offer a tempting selection of platters to set the trend for the feast to follow. Smaller portions of tikka dishes, kebabs and several prawn options are on offer to start, as well as the ever-popular samosas and onion bhajees.

The fully licensed restaurant cooks sizzling tandoori dishes in its own clay oven, barbecuing meat and fish over flaming charcoal to create the mouth-watering spiced dishes, which are all served with salad.

Tandoori choices include the Paneer Shaslick which comprises pieces of home-made spiced cheese, marinated in spices and barbecued.

You'll find balti specialities and medium bhoonas on offer alongside hot madras and vindaloo options. Or perhaps sample the hot, sweet and sour taste of dhansak and patia, infused with the slightly bitter flavour of fenugreek.

A visit to Achari makes the ideal opportunity to sample something you may not have tried before. The karahi dishes are cooked in a thick blend of fresh, Indian spices, with onions, tomatoes and green peppers and served, still sizzling, in a hot iron wok.

All the sauces on offer can be selected with chicken, meat, prawn and king prawn, and there are several additional vegetarian choices.

Specialities at Achari include the wonderfully aromatic mild and creamy chicken dilkush, and the lamb badam passanda, which sees mild, boneless cuts of lamb cooked in a sauce with almonds.

Vegetarian diners will not be disappointed with the delicious fresh vegetable options on offer.

The menu features plenty of side orders and rice options to complement your meal and help to make your Achari experience a memorable one.
