we turned up without booking and were given a table, despite the restaurant being busy. Great food and good atmosphere. Very helpful, friendly staff. Would definitely recommend.

Great, friendly staff along with a great mix of foods - as a non curry eater even I was beautifully catered for (and as much care over the English food / service as the currys). The curry was tasty and tender too. Best chicken nuggets ever!

We were a party of eight and received excellent service on a very busy Monday night. The staff were welcoming and took time to explain the menu. Our banquet was exceptional and so generous that we couldn't finish all the dishes, all this at a very reasonable price. One couple will be returning next week and we can highly recommend... More

Medicare to say the least. The dishes tasted the same just different levels of spice. Very disappointed as we had to wait ages as it was packed.

after a bloody big walk up on the high peak we decided to have a curry and weren't disappointed at The Balti. I've scoffed Indian food all over India and this is well up there with the best. the veg biryani is superb, the curry perfectly cooked and the service second to none.
