We visit the Matlock Balti on a regular basis and it never fails to disappoint. The food is delicious, the quality of the ingredients is superb and the portion sizes are generous. We have tried the other curry houses in the local area and they never live up to the food at the Balti! We will be back again ....!

On holiday in the peaks and this eating establishment was recommended by the hotel. Although the food was good the tables were cramped and the room was full of flowers which did nothing for any hay fever sufferers in the room.

We like to try indian food in our travels and this was one of the best. Good flavours, great service. We asked for extra 'spice' as sometimes flavours tend to cater for the average by being bland. We would definately go back if we passed through Matlock Bath again.

Go here quite a few times during the year. Always lovely food cooked to perfection. Decent size portions. Wednesday nights £15.95 for 3 courses is very popular. Staff are very kind and not pushy like in other places. Do takeaway as well. Definitely would recommend.

I had the pleasure of dining here on Saturday whilst I was in Matlock on a stag party. Twelve of us arrived in the early evening and the restaurant was already fairly busy but we still got seated and served pretty much straight away. The service was brilliant, especially when you consider we had been out most of the day... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by 2 separate people whilst on a short break in the Derbyshire dales. We both love Indian food and have eaten it all over the world, in fact I started eating it back in the 1960's when I was a teenager. Last week The Matlock Bath Balti managed to serve us the worst Indian... More

Ate here with family over the weekend, the staff were really lovely but as the reviews are stating, the food was quite bland. I don't eat spicy food so I ordered a mild dish, chicken danshek, but it didn't taste of much. The pieces of chicken were small, I didn't mind this though. The rest of my family had mixed... More

I am very predictable - I usually have rogan josh or jalfresi and this time went for the rogan josh. It was really lovely. Nice bite sized pieces of meat - and plenty of it. The tomato topping added a real tang and freshness. The nan was also one of the best I have had recently. I was introduced to... More

I visited this restaurant with my partner on recommendations from friends but how disappointed we were. Although the staff were very nice the food was awful. I had the Special Balti which was tasteless, no flavour whatsoever. The pieces of meat were tiny, very child like pieces and the prawns were awful. The accompaniment of mushroom rice was just as...
