“Great to be back”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Have just returned from another great holiday in albuferia. This time we had friends with us who had not been before. We took them along to the balti and they said that it was one of their favourite meals of their 8 day stay. The food was freshly cooked, very tasty and piping hot. My husband had prawn madras and the prawns were very large and tasty. Our friends had chicken korma and they both asked us to take them back again before the end of the holiday to have it again. This is just a small family run restaurant which no trip of ours would be complete without a visit

“Decent Indian at a Very Good Price”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

This was our second visit to The Balti Indian and again we were not disappointed. Opting for the tourist menu we enjoyed an excellent starter followed by a couple of tasty main courses - I particularly liked the Madras. The service was good, and the staff very friendly and helpful. One very slight negative would be that the amount of pilau rice that was served was inadequate for 2 healthy appetites. I would recommend giving this place a try, especially if you are on budget.

“Great curries-tasting is believing :)”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Recommended by a close friend this is not one to be beaten on price or taste. Contrary to previous reviews, The Balti was much more enjoyable than any UK Indian, fresh ingredients, no food colourings or curry pastes which is evident in the overall taste. Definitely one to return to :)

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

Our regular trip to the Balti Indian (after friends recommended it) and it did not disappoint. This was our 4th visit, this time taking our 5yr old grandson. The friendly staff could not do enough and made a big fuss of him. The food was of its usual high standard and reasonably priced.

We have tried several dishes during our visits and have never been disappointed

Looking forward to a return visit later in the year.
