Had a run out to Matlock tonight from Nottingham, visited The Balti which we have been to before a few years ago. Lovely place, nice staff, food was nicely presented & fresh but where is the spice? I had the murghi massala & my hubby had the balti & whilst they were full of chicken & other ingredients, they were... More

BRILLIANT BRILLIANT BRILLIANT:-) This is my brothers local takeaway and we were treated when we stayed with him. What good value for money and they delivered to a remote address with a smile on their face and no complaints. We would definitely order again or better still make a reservation and eat there.

Visited recently as part of a larger group. We had pre-booked as the place is quite small but we felt comfortable and were warmly welcomed. The service and food quality were excellent. Would eat there again without hesitation.

I visited Matlock last year and ate here with friends, it was delicious. Returned June 25th this year with my girlfriend and the standard was still great. Highly recommended.

Another excellent meal in this great restaurant. This is not the cheapest restaurant you will find but it still represents good value for money and, ultimately, you pay for what you get. And what you do get here is top class service from friendly, helpful and efficient staff, excellent flavoursome food all beautifully prepared, and all served in a smart... More

So seven of us turned up without booking on a Friday night and they were brilliant. Couldn't do enough to make us welcome. Service was attentive and good spirited and the food was excellent. Given nearly everywhere else was shut so this was Hobson's choice we fell on out feet. Great fun

Tasted much better. The starters were tiny and the desserts were missed from our set meal. We asked for them and shouldn't have bothered. Try the one in Matlock or Darley Dale. Both better.

Not bad. My husbands madras was very good and portion size good but my biryani was really not the best. It was only warm and the chicken was quite obviously re-used meat from the day before so was very dry. I have never experienced anywhere before them not using fresh chicken. Also, quite expensive for the quality at £52.00 without... More
