“Can not fault The Balti no other compares”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We have been going to The Balti for over 17 years and we have never had a bad meal. The food is fantastic and the service is warm and friendly. They even know who it is when we ring to book and which area we prefer to be seated in with out saying anything, now that's excellent service.

For the reviewers who say the food is terrible, service poor and full of flowers with small tables what are you talking about!!!! A single flower on the table is not over kill and the tables suit the space available. You just can't please everyone!!!

“Fantastic food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

We both really enjoyed our curries here, the size of the raita mind you could have fed a table of 10! This is quite a posh Indian in terms of its decor and the way it is presented. The service was very good and all in all a very enjoyable meal although we did think it was quite expensive but that is compared to Australia or NZ.

“Not a large menu but fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

I eat a lot of Indian food but this has to be the best I have had so far in 2014. The dishes I sampled were all freshly prepared and packed with flavours. No ready-made Pataks catering jars in use here (or if they are they tart them up themselves!) The portions were also ample, more sauce than rice. All four of us were singing The Balti's praises at the end of the night. The only downer for me was the lack of draught beer.
It is a shame it is 150 miles away from home or I would eat here regularly.
