Despite being a small restaurant Lee and the team are able to produce big results. By cooking their food to order the meals are always spectacular. Their combination of traditional and exciting, edgy "specials" makes this a real gem of a restaurant in Southampton. Their Jengah Special is divine and they serve the best Jalfrezi I have ever had anywhere... More

I felt the need to make a review as I feel that a number of people are using this site to unfairly criticise Bitterne Balti because of differences of opinion with the pub next door. The point of Trip Advisor is to give unbiased opinion of the experience you have had in a restaurant, hotel, holiday abroad etc. This opinion... More

Its a decent curry house and the food is ok but its just nothing special im afraid. I appreciate the bad reviews others have given but our food was fine, it was just nothing special. In a city like Southampton you need to do more than be fine to do well and it really does feel like they cant be... More

Mediocre food we waited too long for. Waiter was more interested in talking about middle eastern politics than anything else

We are sorry to hear you weren’t happy with your takeaway, to clarify all prepared food is immediately put in a sealed box to retain the heat for delivery. We have had several very positive reviews for our delivery service and food however it seems from your comments that you haven’t had the experience we would want and we apologise... More

Just had what I can only describe as one of the best tasting curries in a long time. This is my first time here after recommendation by a friend. Although it's not the best looking restaurant internally and you can clearly see that the owner is in the process of upgrading, I'm sure that when done it will be a... More

Iv noticed some bad reviews on here and can only put it down to people who don't realy know what they are talking about. On the off chance that one of them happens to be a publicised food critique then I take it back . :) The first thing I noticed was how friendly and helpfull the staff were, even... More

This is a fabulous little Indian restaurant tucked away in Bitterne Park Triangle. Food and service is excellent, and having tried many other Indians in the local area this is my favourite. I moved away from Bitterne Park to Hedge End about a year ago but we keep returning as no where else compares to their food! Really nice owner,... More

Thank you for your review of the takeaway meal that you ordered from us. We are disappointed that you thought that your mains were only average and apologise that your poppadoms were ‘soggy’, which we accept is not good enough. Regarding our takeaway service we apologise again for the delay in delivery, this was a mistake by us in not... More
