Tasty curry. Arrived within the specified time. We ordered a takeaway so didn't have to deal with the apparent rude servers other reviewers talk about. A good experience, would buy again.

Food from here is amazing and delivery times are good - they even deliver to Morecambe which is 4 miles away, yet they won’t deliver to Halton which is only 3 miles from Lancaster. Strange but still food is nice.

The service is dreadfully slow. I had the tandoori mixed grill 3 rubbery prawns and very dry meat the worst tandoori I have ever had accompanied by a dreadful lumpy curry ( I think) sauce.

Price is reasonable. Quantity is good. Food delivery takes some time though. Taste is fine considering this to be UK based Indian restaurant.

The food at the Bombay Balti is very nice. The ambience of the restaurant is good - light, open and relaxing. The main complaint I have is that they charged an exorbitant £3.20 for chutney tray with the poppadoms. I've never seen a curry house...More
