“Good Food”
Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

Ill keep it brief.
Went here with colleagues recently.
The place was quite busy so 5 turning up without a reservation caused us to wait 5-10 minutes for them to get a table to seat us. It wasn't a problem as we had a dink at the bar whilst waiting.
The food was tasty, reasonably priced with a good variety of dishes and decent sized portions.
Don't get too carried away with ordering nan breads though, they are huge! We ordered 2 between 4 of us but more than half of each one was left.
The meal is served in the Balti dish, which is fine but be careful of the very hot handles.

“Consistently good”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

As with any restaurant, the most important element is the quality of the food and at Balti central it doesn't dissapoint. It probably isn't the best balti house in town but it's certainly up there and being very reasonably priced and with excellent service as well, we will continue to go back.

“My preferred balti house in Nirtgampton”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

I have visited here on many occasions with friends & have always had a great time. Staff are great, always friendly & helpful, even when they're busy. Never had bad food here and would recommend to anyone.

“Would only recommend it for price alone”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Im not entirely sure that I've been to the same restaurant as everyone else as they're all saying how great the service was. I thought the service was absolutely terrible,all the waiters looked miserable and barely said two words to us. The only good thing was the price. Worked out 90quid for 8 of us which i thought was good and the naan breads are huge. Not sure if id go again. Too noisy, too much food and unhappy waiters. :(

“Awful”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

This probably has to be the worse curry I've eaten since the 1990s. Food is heavily coloured and stained my braces. Starter was still frozen in the middle. Main curry contained grisly meat and not much of it. Rice again heavily coloured and not much taste.

Staff were friendly and helpful, although one had bad body odour. The restaurant was pleasant enough.
