I was really impressed. The restaurant is small but does the job. The menu is clear and the staff are happy to discuss the dishes. The owner was extremely attentive and clearly very proud of his restaurant. The phone didn't stop ringing so clearly there's a great take away business as well.

The food was delicious and great value.

Great restaurant.

We've had a take away from here a few times. It's terrific. Definitely a great place to have a take away.

Always good food here, with friendly staff. Nearly all dishes have a vegetarian option, often with Quorn. Don't serve alcohol but happy for you to bring your own. No large tables but that means no loud groups either! By far the best Indian in Nailsworth.

I have been to the Balti many times over the years as it is a convenient local restaurant. There is always a concern when an Indian restaurant has a very extensive menu because you know that not everything is not going to be cooked fresh. I must say that generally the meats appear to be freshly cooked and are not dry and hard which can be a problem.

Generally the food at the Balti is of a reasonable quality and you can dine in or order a take away.

The Balti used to be licences but ceased to be so in 2014. There is a supermarket very close by which stays open quite late. Being non-licenced brings the price of the meal down, you just have to remember to bring something. The Balti does sell non-alcoholic beer and soft drinks.

On my last visit we asked for wine glasses and were appalled when given cheap plastic ones which were awful to drink out of. When I asked why there were no glasses the waiter said it saved them on washing up. It really brings the tone of the place down. So if you want to drink out of glasses take your own. It is a very strange step for the restaurant to take not providing glassware and I am sure a lot of people will be put off.

I am sure if enough diners complain, glassware will be reinstated.

There is plenty of parking outside the Balti. The meals are reasonably priced.

Now, don't get me wrong. we rate Nailsworth Balti. It's a great restaurant and take away. Quick and efficient - and tasty. But what is it with their global mango chutney shortage??? Last three times we ordered a take away, we've had raita, lime pickles - sometimes double portions of lime pickles - and onion mix. But, where, oh, where, is the mango chutney? Have mango commodities gone through the roof? What could be the reason???
