Description: Balti House restaurants are modern “Eat As Much As You Like For a Fixed Price” Our restaurants are designed along clean, modern lines where diners can enjoy Indian cuisine in a stylish atmosphere at an affordable price. Starters, main courses, and desserts are included in the fixed price. Diners can choose from as many as 30 dinner dishes offering culinary delights from the Far East - you will be spoilt for choice. We are the first Indian Buffet bar restaurant in Salisbury and we proud to serve you.Buffets are effective for serving large numbers of people at once. For this reason, they are prevalent in institutional settings, such as business conventions or large parties. Another advantage of buffets compared to table service is that diners have a great deal of choice and the ability to closely inspect food before selecting it. Since a buffet involves diners serving themselves, it has in the past been considered an informal form of dining, less formal than table service. In recent years, however, buffet dinners are increasingly popular. LOOKING TO THROW A PARTY IN THE CITY?Take a look at our function room and make right choice for that special occasion.Whether you're planning a Birthday Party. Family Gathering Party. Organising A Big Work Function. College Student Party.Children Party. Wedding Party or any other occasional parties "WELCOME TO THE BALTI HOUSE" you will be spoilt for choice of our buffet selections.

“Fresh Food & Family Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Very nice indeed. The buffet wasn't your normal overheated greasy affair. The dishes were freshly cooked and very tasty. The selection was very good with a variety of starters, sauces, salad and main dishes. The price of both the buffet itself and the drinks were very reasonable. I live around the corner and can't believe I'd never been there before. I'll definitely make the effort to return.

“Fantastic Food and Value for Money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

A party of four adults visited on Wednesday at 5.30pm so it was extremely convenient to be able to go straight after work and have everything there ready and waiting for you! Saying that, the food is hot and unlike other buffets, it is regularly replaced and filled (and not fresh food piled on top of what was already there!). There is an extensive menu to choose from and if there's something that you would specifically like, it is never too much trouble for them to oblige (as we have visited in the past and they have only been too happy to do this). The whole dining experience is casual but there is still attention to detail and the staff are polite, smart and extremely friendly (even the chef comes out to check on the quality of the food and exchanges pleasanteries to people who are helpng themselves to their buffet). All in all it was a lovely dining experience and we will definatly return with friends and family alike - I would thoroughly recommend it and think that it should be rated a lot higher than it's current status!

“Balti House Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

My wife and I went to the Balti House with an optimistic outlook and were very pleasantly surprised at the standard of the food in the buffet. The Beef Vindaloo and Lamb Madras were very tasty and although I prefer my Indian food hotter they would have been just right for anyone who likes Indian but does'nt want their socks blown off, other dishes that were very good were the Chicken Korai and my wife said the chicken Korma was also excellent (she does'nt normally eat Kormas prefering spicier food but tried it out of curiosity). The food was fresh and was re stocked regularly. It was nice that you could view the kitchen which looked very clean and organised.

I have to agree with the reviewer who wrote that the Balti House is not for a curry connoisseur, only in so much as being a buffet the choice is more limited than a standard restaurant, however the take away menu looks excellent and if the food is as good as the buffet then it should rank as one of the best Indian takeaways in Salisbury.

At £9.50 for as much as you can eat it was very good value, the staff were extremely friendly and curteous all in all a very pleasant experience which I would repeat - I am now looking forward to trying some things from the takeaway menu.

“One of the best curry houses in salisbury”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Went on a Tuesday evening. Service was fantastic. Curries were great and although limited in range (as it is a buffet) included mains of chicken korma, chicken tikka masala, beef vindaloo, chicken korai, lamb madras, sides of Bombay aloo, chickpea curry, starters of chicken tikka, chicken lollipop, chicken pakora, vegetable bhaji and onion bhaji, papadoms, naans,pilau and plain rice as well as side salad and fruit. The food was some of the best curry I have had from salisbury without the pomp and show of hox brasserie or annoka. Their take away menu looks great and far more varied so will be one for us to try next. Being a frequent traveller to India and having been so disappointed by other Indian restaurants in salisbury I was very pleasantly surprised by our dining experience at the balti house this evening and we will definitely go back again.
