I was among 3 Poms who often advise me of the struggle to get a good curry in New Zealand. The Balti House finally came to their rescue! Strongly recommend the "Dal Balti Mahani" as an accompanyment to share for the table with your main. Entrees were very tasty , Mains were outstanding, good portions and value for money. The Naan bread was fresh, very authentic.
Will definitely return, in fact we joked about flying back to Wellington for the sole purpose of getting another curry!

Nice little restaurant near downtown and harbour with delicious Indian food. The kebab and garlic chicken were very tasty. We can also recommend the garlic naan.

Excellent food, we are from the midlands in the UK so we know what a Balti should taste like. I can assure you this Balti house is the real deal for sure.
Waitress could smile a little more but other than that we will be coming back for more.

My wife and I arrived in Wellington after having taken the train from Auckland. We do not know Wellington so after having walked the streets we came across the Balti House. The staff were very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed the dishes we ordered. The garlic nam was excellent and not doughy like they can be.

The food is amazingly authentic and is always of a high std. The service is exceptionally polite. The staff certianly know what "service" means. If you are visiting Wellington & want something special: try their $12 lunch. If you are local, you wont leave hungry. It really is Great Indian food ! You won't be disappointed.
