Had been out all day, walked miles, with the last leg being from Matlock to Matlock Bath. Being a Saturday evening, and one where the illuminations were on, we decided to try here as we reached the end of our marathon walk. Although very busy, they had a table spare for us. Service was very welcoming and friendly. The food... More

We had a really good meal at The Balti. The service was excellent, beer and wine good and the choice of dishes impressive. We shared a mixed Balti to start which was very adequate and delicious and then went on to have Lamb Balti and a Chicken dish - sorry, can't remember what it was called! Both were very good... More

Visited with my family and had as it says a lovely night. The staff were very welcoming along with we got a great window seat. The food was good, tasteful along with well presented, none of the food colourings to make it bright and the stereotypical indian. We will return for sure. Many thanks

Nice restaurant, simple but tastefully decorated with a good, varied menu. The food served was tasty and well cooked. It was more expensive than we would usually pay for this type of food (£65) but the flavours made it worthwhile and there aren't lots of places locally to choose from without driving. Drinks seemed very expensive - £7.50 for a... More
