I would definitely put this in the top 5 Indian restaurants in the Telford/Shifnal area. This... read more

Been to Shifnal Balti quite a few times over the years mostly for a sit down dinner but once for takeaway. Best to call ahead if you have a larger group but the staff is friendly and accommodating. Great menu and variety from mild to very hot and spicy. I tend to favor the hot and spicy end of the... More

Busy yes but well staffed and had to request service to get the menu, order, request desert/coffee menus. The only time we had prompt... More

Whilst having an evening out in Shifnal, my friend Roger and I decided to go to Shifnal Balti for an evening meal as we had been the previous year and it was extremely good. Upon entering the restaurant, we were pounced on by 3 waiters and quickly ushered to a table, drink and popadom orders were taken before we could... More
