Beautiful Indian cuisine

My favourite Indian restaurant in Southampton. Every time I go I love whatever I choose from the menu. This week I had chicken ceylon. My boyfriend has butter chicken every time as he loves it. I've also had the madras and the makhani I think it's called. Fantastic restaurant.

We went for an evening meal and the food was the best we have tasted for a long time. We were genuinely disappointed when we were full and could not enjoy more of the delicious dishes.The staff were very friendly and we were made to feel very welcome.

First time in this restaurant where the friendly staff made me and my party feel like regulars. Ice cold beer and a great selection of wines added to the excellent food and brilliant service. The bill was much cheaper than we thought it would be and the Bailey's and chocolates at the end was a very nice touch. There is... More

We had a lovely meal and as per usual the food was delicious. We can never fault it. However, being take away we had worked out food and prices prior to ordering. 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 able to... 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
