We have been to the Balti a few times now and it is the best Indian within miles. The food is always fresh and tasty and the portions are generous (we have never managed ti leave room for a pudding yet). This is not the place to visit if you are in a hurry as it can take quite a... More

I went for a meal on Saturday night and thought the restaurant and food was superb however one of the waiters was quite rude, and could do with reminding about customer relations, most of them were great but it only takes one to spoil the night. I will be back again and just hope it's his night off

Friendly staff, decent food and definitely the freshest, crispest Poppadoms I've ever had! Nice alternatives to some of the Shifnal fine fine places that offer much but deliver way less.
