Great find in Shifnal

Lovely friendly staff, great food, not too salty as is often the case. Huge portions. I was on my own and was well looked after. A much appreciated alternative to my local hotel menu. Thanks to everyone

This place may look lovely from the outside but it's a poorly run establishment. I've been here before over a year ago and it has not improved. We had a table of 13 people who were celebrating a birthday. It took them 100 minutes to process our order which is shocking! When the curry came it was average at best.... More

Very tasty food and plenty of it. A good range of options on the menu, including some fine-looking chef specials. I thought it was good value and the service was friendly, if a little slow.

Visited on a very quiet Monday evening, there was only one other table occupied. Service was attentive and reasonably fast, and the restaurant was bright and clean. The menu provided a full choice of Balti and other regional dishes. Our selection was well flavoured and traditionally served. Prices represented good value. The only down side is the restaurant is not... More

Wanted a romantic night out and was recommended this place by a few people. Upon walking in a waiter came over to us and asked if we had booked. We told him no and he walked off to see if a table was free (at this point it was not busy). He then called us over to a very small... More

We booked a table of 4 at 7 o'clock to miss the busy period. It didn't seem to matter as the service was poor and slow. We were not asked about refills on our drinks and were waiting an hour for our food. We approached the bar for refills and our food finally arrived. No one asked us if the... More

A lovely clean restaurant serving delicious food. A wide variety of options on the menu and many can be altered to your preference of heat (for myself as mild as possible for my husband blow your head off hot)! Very friendly and polite staff.

This Balti has been a mainstay of the area for a considerable time and has a good reputation locally. The food is very good, the staff are attentive and friendly and the prices make it very good value for money. There is only one down side, since it was renovated it is now open plan with no sound deadening, if... More
