I'm sorry to say that we did not have a positive experience at The Balti. We had a takeaway that was not cheap but was watery and tasteless. What's worse - much worse - is that there were prawns in one of the chicken dishes (as another reviewer had also experienced) - beware those with a shellfish allergy. This was... More

Not sure what has happened at Balti recently. Food is ok although seems to have lost some 'richness' recently and even on average evenings it is slow. Recent order missed rice dish and naan which is a pain but not enough to do the return trip over. Time to try elsewhere.......

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... More

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... More

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,... More

The Balti provided outside catering for a family birthday party we were having. The food was excellent, from the fabulous starters (highly recommend the vegetable pakoras) to the veggie balti and the chicken Murga. Lovely naan breads, poppadums and rice. More than enough food for everyone and us all again the next day!

We frequent the Balti often. Lovely food every time, friendly and quick service. The food isn't swimming in grease unlike the other restaurant. We have a laugh with the staff and are always made to feel welcome. Overall excellent food and service. We wouldn't go anywhere else :)
