Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I've ordered from Café Balti many many times and I have always had good service and the food has been of a high standard. Delivery quick and the online ordering is a breeze to use. I reccomend this place highly and haven't yet found a...takeaway that competes locally. Great job and keep those Patia's and Madras's coming.More

Absolute 0 representation of real South Asian cuisine. I had called back regarding their butter chicken which was dreadfully cooked and loaded with so much sugar that you couldn’t taste a thing but sweet slurp and overpowering ‘aroma’, the boy I spoke to apparently was...proud to be selling such poor standard food but I couldn’t expect him to say any different however note to chef, please be true to yourself when feeding people. Would you eat that stuff you get others to eat? There’s no 0 on this so had to give it 1 star but even their chicken pakora was pre prepared chicken tikka dipped in batter and under cooked then sent out. NEVER ORDERING AGAIN!! I can’t get that vile sweet taste out of my system it’s sickening honestly very disappointed!!More

Ordered via JustEat. Food arrived 15 mins before earliest stated time. Great tandoori chops. Bhajis a bit stodgy. The butter chicken with added lamb was excellent. The garlic rice good and the naan excellent.

They do not fulfil orders. If something is on an order they decide not to give you that item. Blaming just eat and giving me nothing but disgusting rude attitude on the phone. Vile place. Lost a valued customer. I hope you all fail in...your lives. You seem to have conveniently moved, deleted or hidden my review on just eat too. Hmm.More

Ordered from them every Saturday since March. Called them today at 5:58 and they recognised us from our order. Now 7.55 and no food. Half an hour ago they promised 15 minutes at latest as they were busy! No sign of food. Have given up...and cooked ourselves. Pity.More

After finding my usual takeaway was closed we scouted the Internet for another close by and came across Cafe Balti. We were a bit unsure as always when trying somewhere new but we needn’t have been. Upon arrival to collect my order I wasn’t overly...impressed inside the restaurant. It was very basic and a tad dingy and I know it was closed due to covid restrictions but I’d imagine it to be this way always. Anyway I reserved judgement and was pleasantly surprised when I got home. The food was lovely! I had a mushroom Balti and my family had butter chicken and chicken tikka masala. Couldn’t fault any of it! Will defo be returning....once I’ve lost some of my lockdown spread :-/More

I order from the cafe balti very regularly , and we recommend it to family and friends all the time. However, this order came without extra king prawns, and a totally different naan from what we ordered. When contacting them, they assured me that the...manager had overlooked our order and said that the prawns had definitely been added to the dish. There were no writing to indicate that prawns had been added to the dish and it wasn’t in the dish at all. I didn't appreciate how i was argued with on the phone and don't think i will be ordering from here again.More

Ordered my food for a part of it not to be delivered after paying for it! When I rang and told them they basically called me a liar and said it was In there!! NO IT WAS NOT!!! My meat was fatty & chewy ....Save yourself the disappointment people, and go somewhere that can actually deliver what you pay for .More

Well where do I start? Firstly decided to give them another try and not only did they get order wrong they wanted to charge an extra £5 for what was there mistake in 1st place. Ordered and when meal came it was only 1 curry...in the bag instead of 2. I phoned up to say only to be told by the person on the phone "I took your order and you asked for it to be swapped so I crossed it off the list" I never asked for it to be swapped I asked for 2 and only received 1 and then he tried arguing with me so I told him to come collect his food and refund me, to which they did. Never mind award winning curry house, they seriously need to educate their staff with regards to listening and not to argue with customers and put things right and not try and rob people of there hard earned money. Avoid this place as food isn't up to much either.More

We are absolute converts to Cafe Balti. We are in the process of eating our third meal delivered within three nights. We are avid Indian food lovers and after what we have had, we would now not go anywhere else... so duly impressed! We know...our Indian food and this has just surpassed all expectations. Don't be put off that it's value for money - we make so many different variations to the menu, but it's all executed perfectly and at no extra cost. We so recommend Cafe Balti - they go above and beyond and the food and staff are exceptional!More

The food was amazing on the whole - as usual. Tonight we had the masala fish (as a main). The waiting staff were everything you could hope for. We had some issues which were dealt with by the manager competently. The only reason we couldn't...give 5 stars were the niggles. Will we be back? Oh yes - love their desi curry (Previously had there) and the masala fish obvsMore
