Awful

Had a home delivery which was late. When plated up, the food was inedible, cold and greasy by far the worst food I have ever tasted!. Put it in the bin. Such a waste of money.

I have no idea how this place stays open as it must be the least visited Indian restaurant in the UK. I don't want to see anyone do so badly and I really feel sorry for them. What a shame that it is so poor but everything about this place is really bad, the decor looks 40 years past its... More

If you like ghee and some more ghee laced with fat and salt you will love this place. If you like tasty curries with spice go elsewhere.....believe me you and your doctor will thank me for it!!!

We were in Chester for the late night shopping and Christmas Market and walked past the Spice Balti on our way into the city. The £6.50 Thursday offer caught my attention and thought that we might give it a go on our return. A couple of hours later we were again in front of the restaurant, which was totally empty.... More

Visited last night at 19:00 with my fiancé. Alarm bells were ringing when we saw the décor,It had no ambience. Despite this we ordered a starter followed by a chicken Jalfreizi and chicken Danzak. It was awful,Both tasted as if they had came out of a packet. Please avoid this awful establishment,You will be disappointed.
