Gorgeous food as always but check your change.......

We were charged nearly £5 too much, I informed the gentleman of his mistake only then to be assured the price was correct. Finally I was... read more

Visited the Bitterne Balti with family friends, lovely evening weather and restaurant wise. Doors where open and we sat at the front of the restaurant, I think sometimes they open the sliding doors as well. Must say the fish Balti was excellent and it was good to see fish in every dish as an option. Thanks for a good evening... More

Having moved into the area we had frequently passed this restaurant and being keen on Indian food we thought we would try it this week. We had a set menu that consisted of a starter, onion bhaji and tandoori chicken, followed by chicken balti, a lamb dish, Bombay potatoes with rice and a naan, accompanied by a very tasty house...

We really fancied a Indian take away, a rare treat, and thought we would look on Trip Adviser to find a good local place. We came across Bitterne Balti and gave them ago. We ordered a chicken pathia and a chicken sag, which said on the menu was medium to hot, but the guy on the phone reassured me, it... More

We haven't visited this restaurant for some time so gave it another go mid week. We were not disappointed. The food no service were very good. Seems popular with take away too. My only grumble would be it took some time for a our meals to arrive even though the place was practically empty. I can only presume everything was... More

I reviewed the Bitterne Balti last year when we ate here for the first time. We've been back twice since and this week thought we would try a take away. Wow what a shock. The normal dishes we have had - Prawn Puri and Chicken Chat were bland to the point of tasteless the specials greasy and lacking in any... More

Quite some years ago, I went to the BB with a number of friends, to celebrate my best friend's birthday. It was a fairly pleasant experience, but with some issues. They were all resolved, and all in all, it was ok. Since then, I have been occasionally, and each time it was better. Last night, I took my Nippers, and... More
