“Great Food & Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

We went to Balti King with KGB voucher, it was quite early in the evening so not to busy. The waiters were brilliant offering advice but not pushy, for starters we had sizzling mixed kebab & mixed bhaji, both were excellent & huge portions. For main we had lamb tikka Jaipur a portion of garlic pilau rice & a garlic nan bread. Everything was piping hot and very tasty.
Even without the voucher this restaurant is not expensive but the quality of food & service was excellent, will definitely be returning herep

“Great food shame about the students”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

Also went on a voucher couldn't fault the food the staff were also very friendly and helpful. Would defo return and recommend but felt a bit over dressed for the occasion , also it's bang over the road from leeds university and was full of noisy students could barely have conversation over the table.

“Was pleasantly surprised!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

I visited here with my boyfriend and used a £10 Wowcher meal deal for two and didn’t expect much after reading the mixed reviews and for the small amount we paid, but I cant say anything bad about this place at all!

We had 3 courses and only had to pay extra for drinks and sides, so it was excellent value for money too.

You are spoilt for choice with the menu, it took us ages to chose, but the food was lovely and piping hot and the service was excellent, the waiters were extremely polite, helpful and attentive, especially considering the restaurants don’t make hardly any money from the online voucher deals.

I wouldn’t hesitate to go back here again and pay full price! Mind you, even full price isn’t that much here anyway.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

The food I had here was amazing and value for money. The portions were huge i couldn't finish my meal. I loved the garlic family nan I wish I had a picture it was that big. My Dad used to go to this restaurant when he was at university and he always used to rave about chicken karahi. My wife tried the dish and found it very tasty. If you are ever in the area go to this restaurant great value for money in this terrible financial cl

“Fantastic food and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Went with my son using a Groupon voucher.

Had been to the Balti King in Sheffield previously and told the waiter how disgusting it was so wasn't expecting much. The waiter did apologise for this.

We ordered two starters with mains sides and ice cream. The food was amazing and the service was good.

The only thing I didn't agree with was the automatic £3 service charge added but the food was so good they definately deserved it.
