“Great food but can get too busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Balooshai makes my favourite Indian food, but after a run of less than satisfactory visits when were waiting ages (45 minutes or so) for our food we now do one of 2 things: go early - about 6ish - or order take-out. Take-out orders appear to take preference over the food ordered by customers eating in. The times when we have been left waiting, we saw a continual stream of food going out the door.
Despite these gripes we still keep going back for more because it stands head and shoulders above the rest for Indian food in Huddersfield

“First visit....won't be the last!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This was our visit and certainly won't be the last! The restaurant had been recommended by friends and we weren't disappointed. The food was amazing and very different to your usual curries. We ordered the House Mix for 2 which came on a sizzler and was delicious and also a huge portion. Staff were very welcoming and knew of our friends which perhaps added to the great personal service they gave us. Very good experience and great place to eat out.

“Excellent cant believe we haven't visited before now”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Wanted to try somewhere we hadn't been before so decided on balooshai. What a great choice. The service from the minute we walked in was excellent. The place was quiet but was bank holiday Monday. Ordered the mixed sharing starter which was delicious. Ordered main courses that we hadn't tried before and we all enjoyed them. Portion sizes very generous. Food is well cooked and not swimming in ghee which I don't like. Can't wait to go back

“Love it here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Have been coming here occasionally for the last couple of years now and the standard of the food has remained the same: brilliant. The small location gives it a friendly feel, the decor could do with an update but that's never stopped us going. Generally the service is good, and everything is priced well.
