I visited this place with my dad at around half 5 on a Tuesday night. The place was like a ghost town. They played some weird music ... Rick Astley, older Kylie Minogue stuff etc ... The "chicken" in my curry was the worst ever. It was like rubber and had a really weird taste. I used to get deliveries... More

The Prince Balti is under new ownership and I am hopeful that people will be supportive of this small local restaurant. The owner and the waiter are both very pleasant,attentive but unobtrusive and you can see there has already been investment in the decor - I believe there is more to come. The food this evening was outstanding! Unbeknown to... More

Tried a number of Indians in Portobello before settling on Prince Balti as best take away option. Unfortunately last two experiences have been disappointing and probably won't be back. Ordered a home delivery about a month ago which after 1h 15 hadn't arrived. Called the restaurant who made some excuses about being busy but had clearly forgotten our order. When... More

By far the worst Indian restaurant EVER EVER EVER! I can't believe this place survives considering all the consistently bad reviews. It's one saving grace was some nice nan bread, apart from that this place is positively a bio-hazard. If you like living and enjoy your life then never set foot in this place!!!

We've been to this restaurant many times but after our last experience vowed not to go back. At it's best it was cheap but not cheerful. The food was okay but never piping hot. The naan breads were pretty good (huge and tasty) but that was about the only above average thing I can say. We had gone many times... More

I cannot recommend this restaurant. The waiter was surly, we never ever received our drinks, the food cold and tasteless (the lamb tasted like old beef and the Alloo gobi was off). To cap it off the prices were high. Do not eat here!!
