We have been visiting Bitterne Balti for more years than I care to remember. We either eat or or order a takeaway. We have just finished celebrating my youngest daughter's 19th Birthday, we said she could go to any restaurant but chose to go to Bitterne Balti as she really enjoys their food also. There were 11 of us in... More

We've been regulars for years and a week wouldn't be complete without a meal or a takeaway from here. The food is freshly prepared, always tasty and excellent value. Tonight we went with the kids for a birthday meal and every dish was spot on, the naan incredible and clean plates all around. The complimentary Baileys finishes it off nicely,... More

Telephoned our order through to the restaurant, very polite staff. When the food arrived, it was of the highest quality, the chicken used was fresh and plenty of it. All the food was tasty and plentiful. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you want to eat in or just order a takeaway.

Visited on Wednesday with friends from the USA and Stoke, we have tried Balti dishes up North but we thought this was one of the best ever for presentation, quality, taste and excellent value for money, The owner could not have been more welcoming, an excellent meal enjoyed by all.

The staff were all very pleasant & helpful. All the food is cooked fresh which makes it taste amazing. Onion bhajis were lovely, Chicken Pathia was really good and the garlic naan bread was so fresh it looked and tasted fantastic. We were told the chef has been there for 17 years and that is apparent in the tasty flavours... More

Excellent and quick service, welcoming and helpful. New ideas were offered and helpful advice and changes to my choices. Would happily go once a week and ask for something new to be recommended.

Bitterne Balti seems to have let standards slip recently. Service from waitresses is pretty good but owner is decidedly unwelcoming. Food was below par on last two visits - meat overcooked to the point of being chewy. Not going to hurry back.

Service was good, but food was served cold, complained and was given free baileys style drinks, when no one in our party was drinking alcohol so that was a waste, felt hurried with meal, like they wanted us out so they could get the next customer in.

We go to the Butchers Hook next door for a few Craft Beers then pop to The Bitterne Balti which is amazing from the food to the service . Mix these two into your Sunday evening and you have a very enjoyable time .
