Great staff, service and food at this gem. Out for a friends birthday tonight and the staff clocked on, bringing out a cake and candles after our excellent mains. Only heads up I'd give someone who hasn't been before - get veggie food! Meat plays a miniscule part in traditional Indian food and the veggie dishes here are far superior... More

Nice, however quite costly. Good for a one of treat every now and then. Service was friendly and food was prompt. Professional service.

We are regulars at this Restaurant and this is the best Indian Restaurant I have ever visited. We are local to Matlock Bath and very often go for a takeaway. Excellent food, great staff and very clean.

Had originally got take-away, but food was so good we went for dinner there 4 days later. Really nice inside and food was great second time round. Worth a visit if in the area.

Quite expensive for a curry that was average. Very friendly staff. But food just ordinary. Meat on the tough side.

We had a short break in Matlock Bath and were looking for somewhere nice to go for dinner. From the moment that we walked into The Balti we were given fantastic service. We were welcomed to our seats by the very friendly staff, and when I explained that I was a vegan one of the chefs came out to talk... More

I've been here several times over the years. Staff are always welcoming and efficient. There is a very good, and interesting, menu. I've never had a bad meal. One of the best Indian restaurants I have eaten in, outside India. Recommend booking, particularly at the weekend.

went on a friday evening, and had the deal for £14.95 for a starter, main and rice or bread. Really good value, all of our 5 meals were delicious and we enjoyed everything. Garlic mushroom puri starter was excellent, and the onion bhaji's were light and well flavoured. The restaurant is part of the Anoki group, and up to the... More

Our first visit to Matlock Bath arriving Sunday to find most eating places were serving fish and chips and lots of Victorian tea rooms so our hotel suggested this Indian restaurant. The staff were brilliant and could not have been more helpful. The food was excellent and I would recommend this place to anyone in the Matlock/Matlock Bath area. The... More
