“Incredible variety and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Wandered in here during a conference after picking up the menu outside and seeing the extensive selection at very reasonable prices. We decided to give it a try and were very happy with all the dishes we shared. The lamb & veg balti was the best! They didn't actually have muttar paneer on the menu, but they said it was no problem to make it for us. Really nice and attentive staff.

“Hygeine,hygeine,hygeine”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Visited for first time food very good and tasty but appalled and disgusted by:
1.Pickle trays removed from one customers table topped up and placed on another customers table.
2. Water jug removed from table next to us and water from partly drunk glasses poured back into jug,water then thrown down sink and jug placed unwashed back on shelf to be filled up and given to another customer.
3. Salad in large uncovered bowl; part eaten salad from one table then topped up and given to next customer.
These practices are what we witnessed in the restaurant - who knows what goes on in the kitchen!
Surely must be serious health and safety issues.
Similar comments have previously been made but obviously ignored by owner and staff.
Shall not be returning - stomach churning - I do not want to have previously used utensils /unwashed served to me and other people's leftovers added to my food.
These practices are truly disgusting.

“Great Lunch, good value all round.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

I eat at the Balti king 3 or more times per week for lunch.
I was initially impressed with the friendly service, and great value but since becoming a regular I have been offered so many variations of the basic lunch time menu that I must have sampled most styles of dish on or off the full menu!
I bought the platinum card that gives a years discount on takeaway collections and meals eaten in the restaurant and saved what the card costs many times over.
Overall I would highly recommend Balti King for good service and a great value meal.
