Im not sure where it all went wrong for this place. I visited a few years ago and it was perfectly fine for a meal out. However, I've given them 2 chances in 2016 and its not been good. First, I ordered a meal over the phone only to be told that I can't order because they were busy and... More

Had a disappointing chicken tikka vindaloo. The vindaloo sauce was great, but it only had 5 very thinly sliced pieces of chicken tikka that could probably had formed a regular single piece of chicken in any other indian restaurant. Shame.

We did takeaways over the past 2 weeks, very happy with the food. Once we mentioned our preferences of spice and oil they did a great job! definitely worth going again and trying some other items!

We've used Cheltenham Balti many times over the years, and were really looking forward to our takeaway from them on the last occasion. Unfortunately, our order apparently didn't come through their online ordering system, and when we phoned to see where it was after nearly 2 hours, we were told that "it's just come through out and we're about to...

What I got were 5 over cooked prawns covered in a grey sauce with no identifiable vegetables It was just gloop which had been poured over the prawns with half a centimetre of oil.How can any restaurant turn...

Our experience with the restaurant is beyond bad, to summarise - Rude staff, short abrupt unhelpful - Staff arguing / disagreeing openly in the restaurant in front of diners - the 2 serving staff seemed more concerned with dealing with the obvious failure of their delivery service that evening than handling diners - Long wait to order food despite asking...
