Nice staff and above average curry. It's a bit noisy but very lively on the Friday evening we visited.

Went to the Shifnal Balti for a meal with friends a couple of weeks ago. I have to say, fior starters, that this is probably the sort of place I'd have walked past without a second glance. The façade isn't great and purple neon lights really don't shout out "good restaurant" to me. However, this was highly recommended by a... More

I have eaten here a few times and I think its the best curry house in Shifnal. The staff are always attentive (although we did see one waiter being really rude to a table of german and dutch visitors). The food is usually good, the price is OK and the restaurant is fairly clean and well kept.

Despite arriving a rather late, 9:15pm, due to travelling on business and not having chance to book, I was made to feel really welcome from the moment I walked through the door. There were already several 'regular' diners in the restaurant, I could tell by the good banter between them & the staff, however, I was made to feel just... More

Wow what a restaurant. 25 people all having different dishes, some had starters some did not. They got every request exactly right. The food was great, hot and promptly served. An amazing feat as the rest of the restaurant was busy too. A super night and will certainly visit again.
