The Balti house is the best indian food i have had in the Netherlands. Being from the UK, I can safely say its one of the best I have ever had. The pictures do not do this place justice because not only is the food amazing, the staff are incredibly friendly and the restaurant is warm, cosy and intimate. Whether... More

Me and my family were on a Europe trip in September. Being from a south asian country we were craving for some indian food and decided to visit this restaurant. The staff were very welcoming. We ordered quite a few dishes such as chicken tikka, chicken butter masala, biryani, naan bread and some vegetarian dish. All the items were exquisite.... More

We went here to try indian food last month. The food was good and service too. I liked the naan and chicken tikka masala. I would expect food to be more spicy next time

Looked a previous reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to try this restaurant out. Really nice food and in quite reasonably priced too. I would definitely recommend it. The curries were very tasty, the mixed grill very big :-) the only minor gripe is that it could have been spicier; more chilli. All in all though, very nice and would go... More

The food is well prepared. You can order couple dishes and share it with your friends. However I would imagine the dishes to be more spicy.

I'm a regular at this gem of an Indian restaurant; go there at least twice a month. I'd like to keep it a secret so please don't go there. Their specialty is North Indian cuisine with lots of curries and great nan bread. Each dish is very distinct and different from the others. Not like other restaurants where only the... More

I had dinner here with a friend. He had the Butter Chicken Masala and I had the Chicken Tikka Masala. We were both very happy with our meals. The papadam and its accompaniments was terrific. Not too pricey and very nice staff. A solid Indian restaurant.

Typical service you recieve from most Indian restaurants, however we were in no hurry and were there for the food. The Balti was very good along with the assorted starters. We sat outside on the side street. A good value curry house.

Ordered food and it arrived exactly as ordered and was good quality. The restarant itself was little dingy and the staff were devoid of any kind of welcoming aura which was pity. Reasonable price
