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.

Lovely place, good food friendly service, though a bit slow (there were 16 of us!) Parking though 😱 Use public car parks or side streets so you might want company when you leave.

Went as a birthday treat from Husband. Great service, friendly staff and lovely food. Wasn't too dear either and was the best Chicken Tikka Garlic I have ever tasted. Would highly recommend

We visited Shifnal Balti due to the reviews that were on Trip Advisor. I feel that people that have visited have been generous with their reviews.

14 of us went here for a work dinner on a Friday evening. The decor is very nice, but it is a bit cramped especially around the toilets. After we had our first round of drinks it was extremely difficult to get any more. I constantly had my hand up and waited over 10 minutes before someone noticed I wanted... More

Took my family here for a night out and nothing has changed. The Food & service are as good as ever. The restaurant was nearly full and we waited no longer than you would expect if you want fresh cooked food. The children finished all there food and were well looked after by the staff.
