My family get food from here regularly and never have any problems. Food is delicious either as a sit down meal or a takeaway. The staff is also very welcoming and polite!!

Be prepared for a shock when you walk in here ! The carpet in the dining area is so dirty and greasy, it actually DOES stick to the soles of your shoes. Its a bit of a shocker and I am surprised the local health authority don't pay them a visit. Surely this cannot be acceptable in a dining establishment... More

Please do not eat here, it's awful. It's one of those truly dreadful restaurants (if it is a restaurant) over priced garbage, there are better options from the local supermarkets, fact.

My friends and I recently visited the Royal Balti, as a resident in the town in which it is located I have been many many times throughout my life, but I am continually disappointed every time I seem to go now; a huge part of the dining experience is the Indian beer alongside a curry, and the Royal Balti were...

I've been a fan of this place for years but went off it a little last year when it underwent a change in management. It's been a while since I last went but having eaten there this week I'm pleased to say it's back on form.Great food and friendly service. I'll be going again very soon.

Ordered a takeaway and went to pick it up, they said it'll be 30 minutes so waited a little longer, unsure why as there was only one seated customer when I arrived, was starving and couldn't wait to dine when I got home, OMG was I in for a disappointment, the food wasn't even luke warm, had to be microwaved...

We have had takeaways on many occasions from various restaurants in Durham. The Royal Balti in our opinion offers the best quality so we decided to reserve a seat. The quality was equally as good, staff were pleasant and made you feel welcome. I enjoyed the food I had and can definitely recommend .😀

Our first (and probably last) visit. Basically a takeaway with a few tables and chairs out back. We were the only guests in, so that should have told us something. The takeaway section didn't seem busy either which was unusual for a Saturday night. Not very welcoming, as cold (no heating working) and looking a bit shabby all round. Sticky... More

After reading reviews that the delivery at the Royal Balti was terrible, we decided to order our food to collect. We waited at the reception for 15 minutes for service. As we waited more and more unacknowledged customers walked through the door. We recieved our food 20 minutes later, and my partner had to ask for our change. Eventually i... More
