Was looking forward to trying Balti Walla after some decent reviews but was very disappointed. Went with a party of 12 and whilst the starters were pretty tasty the main courses were all pretty poor. Lack of taste being the main complaint. To be fair the restaurant was very busy but that's no excuse for tasteless food at an Indian... More

We sometimes visit cheltenham for a stopover on a Sunday night and have been to this restaurant a couple of times. On a Sunday evening there is currently an offer for any starter, any main and rice or nan for 9.95. We like the feel of the bath road and there is the added bonus of a supermarket being a... More

We ate here for Mother's Day. The restaurant was almost empty which meant our food was served nice and promptly. The staff weren't particularly friendly but the food was pleasant...at the time. Unfortunately, a few hours later, all three of our party began suffering with stomach upsets and serious stomach cramps which did not ease the day after. Perhaps we... More

I've visited Balti Walla a couple of times since living in Cheltenham for the best part of the last decade. The first time I hand't had the best experience, but gave it a second chance this week as part of a colleague's retirement party. The staff were friendly enough and the menu cheap, and the food matched around what you'd... More

Been wanting to go for a while as usually go to Indian brasserie. Lovely food, good service. We ordered a vegetable biriani, chicken balti, pilau rice. Nice and spicy. Good atmosphere inside while waiting.

We attended here for our office Xmas meal. This was booked well in advance & we were placed upstairs amongst a loud football team. I was sat far too near the gents toilets for my liking & we all had to harass the staff for service. Eventually we were served & I ordered a chicken tikka Masala, X3 others of... More

Busy restaurant but this did not affect the service or quality of the food . Great meal with excellent service and a very enjoyable evening in a modern tidy restaurant . BYO so the meal cost was very reasonable . Will definitely return and would certainly recommend the restaurant .

Visited last night with husband and father in law. Couldn't have been better. Enjoy taking our own drink as father in law likes sweet wine ( not to everyone's taste!) so balti allows him to drink his wine of preference. Service is great always and last night was no exception even though it was very busy even at an early... More

We managed to get a table for ten without booking on a Thursday night. The restaurant quite busy after we had sat down and ordered. Like the fact we could bring our own alcohol and the glasses were provided. Food came out not too quick but all was hot and well presented. The dishes were nice and the portions were... More
