We visited last week The photo shown is incorrect it is a lovely old building in Ticklemore Street. Apparently the restaurant is under new management. The waiter was extremely helpful and having ascertained what we liked recommended dishes we might like but have never tried. He was right and we enoyed the food enormously.

The restaurant is very clean & tidy nand we would recommend highly

We ate here in the evening at the end of May and experienced good and friendly service with tasty food. Having recently spent a month in India the food compared very well, although we ordered far too much!
The waiter obliged by bringing us Take-away containers in which to put the remains to make a meal the next day.

I don't understand why this is getting bad revues. We moved here in September and have eaten here over ten times. Personally i've only tried 3 or 4 different main courses. I believe that if you liked something last time why risk your money trying something different you might not like. On the other hand I think my wife has only had the same main twice. She is going through the menu and says every meal we've had has been great. She's a chef so that's a compliment. The staff are all freindly and polite. The place is clean. It's not the Ritz. Maybe some people need to lower their expectations. Let's not forget, Totnes is full of weirdos. 2 or 3 nights a week they have special deals on. 2 for the price of one, all you can eat buffet and £9.99 for a full three course meal. Well worth a visit. Make up your own mind. Try the food then leave a revue.

I write this review with a heavy heart as this used to be a reliable and cosy restaurant, serving a standard but well executed indian restaurant menu. We used to eat out there as a family every so often and the food used to be fine and the staff were customer orientated. One of the waiters in particular was good with kids but he is not around any more. Has it changed hands?

The last few times we visited the service was offhand and the food ranged from the lower end of average to poor. We returned after the first bad experience despite being disappointed because even good restaurants can have an off day and they had a good track record before. All restaurants in Totnes are rated by South Hams District Council and ratings are available to view online. Balti King scores 1 out of a possible 5 points (where 1 is least hygienic and 5 is the most hygienic), meaning that major improvement is necessary. Until this place improves in all areas, please avoid....

Whatever you do, avoid this place like the plague and isntead carry up the high street to the wonderful Cafe Mumbai.

Even with the fact that we went on a 2 for 1 main course evening, it still wasn't worth it.

The service was so bad, that customers were literally getting up to serve themselves. There were only two of us and we only had one course - and were there for 2 hours!

The food itself wasn't actually too bad, but the service, environment and cleanliness let it down.

When (finally) our jug of tap water arrived, there was dirt in the bottom of it.
