Me and 5 of my work colleagues went to the spice balti on Monday 23rd November. The staff and service was exceptional. Food was amazing as well. We had the traditional house special jhal noor puri. The flavour and the spices was impeccable. Spice balti we will see you soon thank you for your hospitality

This restaurant is an example of 'simplicity at its best'. Had proper indian food from here which me and my mates thoroughly enjoyed. Especially the chicken bhuna. Second time in here and weren't disappointed. Will be back!
