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

We had an early evening takeaway from this well known balti restaurant . The Tandoori murghi Massala and chicken tikka jalfrezi were both tasty and good sized portions. Free papadoms were nice touch. I would definitely put this in the top 5 Indian restaurants in the Telford/Shifnal area. This restaurant is also good to eat in as well as for... More

I Ordered a single curry, rice and chips to take away and was told 30 minutes until collection, I went to collect it 30 minutes later and was then sat in the window for another 45 minutes, what's ironic is that my complete order was over cooked, the chips were like a rubbery cardboard, the chicken tikka masala was just...

Went here tonight and as always the place looks the part. Service was good and staff attentive. I had a chicken tikka based curry and it was spicy as requested but the chicken was bland and I could not taste much of the curry... No garlic etc that I usually taste in the same dish. I had the hottest thing... More

Shifnal Balti used to be an excellent restaurant, but over the last few months the food has gone drastically down hill! Such a shame as it used to be in my opinion the best in the area for Indian food. I give the value rating poor based on the food quality
