Description: No gimmicks just good food at great prices, friendly atmosphere, fully licensed indian & bangladeshi restaurant and takeaway. One of the longest established indian restaurants in town with a lounge and bar area with staff that are always willing to help and are very accomodating. The restaurant also has disabled access and toilets, and are more than happy to cater for large parties. So why dont you all come and give your taste buds something to remember, where you will find something for everyone in our extensive menu, if you don't see what you want then just ask one of the friendly staff available and we will do our best to make it for you, so please dont knock us before you try us let your experience of our hospitality, and the quality of our food decide.

We used the Bombay Balti for take aways and always had the set meal for two which was excellent but they have stopped doing it . The food is very good but I don't think we will use them anymore due to the set meal being stopped .

Dear reviewer i am extreamly sorry that you will not be dining with us any more. Im glad that you enjoyed our set meal for two, and know that you as well as others are very disapointed at the fact that we have stopped doing this as it was costing us more to make and wasnt very cost effective as a takeaway item. As time passes our menus evolve old items are replaced by new, in place of the set meal for two we have put a fantastic promotional offer in the takeaway menu : 1 popadom, a chutney tray, 1dish from the classic menu selection,1 rice and 1 naan all for £7.95. This offer has gone down a storm in lancaster and is very popular. It would be an absolute shame to loose you as our customer with out you even giving the new option a try.

We used to go here all the time in 2010-2011 and was always happy with the cheap prices and quality of food. However we visited in 2012 and were shocked at how offensively the staff spoke to us. We ordered a rogan josh and when it arrived it was completely spice free. We called the waiter over and (as he dipped his finger in the curry at the table!) he got very defensive and said it just lacked a bit of salt?! Ok then. He didn't offer a solution or discount! We didn't want to stay in his company so said we'd jut pay and leave. This week we thought we'd risk it and order a takeaway. We really shouldn't have bothered as when I bit into my onion bhaji I found a black hair embedded in it. I was obviously completely put off my food, and it's fair to say we won't be dining there again.

Visited Bombay Balti last Saturday night. Had a really nice time, the food was good value for money and the waiters were very good. Didnt have to wait for food even though they were very busy. Only negative was the bar staff they seemed to prefer to just stand talking and if you wanted a drink it was basically thrown at you. All in all though a pleasant night would return.

We ordered a takeaway friday and the food was amazing. There was a decent amount of meat in the curries. Their bombay chicken is an amazing curry, you must try it. the portions are massive and it is hard to finish a meal but well worth trying. We will definately be going into the restauarnt soon but this is the best indian takeaway in lancaster.

Had a great experience at the Bombay Balti Restaurant last Friday. First time visit and this won't be the last! One of the finest tasteful Indian food that I have had, fantastic service and a nice mix of music! 5 stars from me
