Good food - especially the Vindaloo. Very friendly service, as befits a small family owned and run restaurant, in particular, Shiplu, cousin of the owner and follower of cricket, who has looked after us on a number of occasions. Also an excellent "Take Away" service. As an example of their commitment to service, having undertaken to deliver to my home... More

The Balti House never disappoints - comprehensive menu - friendly attentive staff - bring your own if eating in - complimentary onion Bhaji if collecting take away and always a surprise 'extra' dish in take away box ... Food consistently good - so lucky for a local ...

Called in when travelling home, Strange place, waiter twice came to take our order but the phone rang so he went back to take a carry out order- felt a second best customer sat waiting- had a chicken biryani which was pretty bland and the veg bits were al dente at best. Probably give it a miss next time I'm... More

Balti House was recommended to us, and we were certainly not disappointed in any way. The restaurant is basic - not a fancy new designer-style Indian restaurant - but the food is phenomenal. You could taste all the flavours - it took some time from order to serving, which is a good sign that the food is being freshly prepared.... More

We used the takeaway service on this occasion. Not sure we had the correct order but it didn't matter as the food was excellent as normal and service was quick despite the restaurant being packed as you would expect so close to Christmas! Customer service is first class with the usual free sample onion Bhaji offered to you when waiting... More

Everyone has their "local Indian restaurant" and this is definitely mine. The food quality is always great and you always get some free items with takeaway - bonus! The prices are fair and the service is quick. I've only had a sit down meal in here a handful of times but the atmosphere is nice and relaxed and it's easy... More

We both fancied something warming on a chilly winter evening and got the warmest of welcomes and some great advice, curry and chat here. Chosen on spec as a convenient location for each of us to get to this place proved a real find. Mondays are always quiet but we got the warmest welcome in this place just off the... More

The curries at this place are really nice and if you get a takeout don't be surprised if you get freebies! The staff are friendly and they do a banquet night on Wednesdays for £10.95 a head which is a bargain, free parking at the back too.

Good food, nice staff and the ability to take your own wine as they do not have a licence. Go on a Wed evening as theier is a 3 course meal deal for only a tenner- bargain!
