had a lovely meal here , and the waiters where lovely and friendly . the only negative I have is the onion bhagis we ordered to go with our main where very small and at £4.25 for 2 I expected a little bigger and just felt a little ripped off .. but the rest of the food was lovely .

We ate on a Monday night when they serve a buffet, which is actually a set menu freshly cooked for you. The food was very well cooked. You are asked whether you want mild, medium or hot spicing. We asked for medium and it was spot on. Quantities are generous but not massive - we couldn't quite finish it all.... More

We visited balti as a double birthday. Celebration for myself and daughter. We took our two granddaughters with us and the staff were so helpful with the children. The food was to die for so tasty and brilliant value for money. We did not have to wait long even though they were starting to get busy.
