“Good but pricey.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

Good atmosphere and attentive, quality service and food but the price is too high for the location and quality of decor.
Varied menu and you will not be disappointed what ever you order.
Can get busy on Friday and Saturday nights so advisable to book ahead but the rest of the week should generally be fine to just turn up.

“Wedding trip curry”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

Visiting the area for a wedding we found the Balti House Tandoori through Trip Advisor.
The food was OK, the service was excellent though (for us) considering all we had was a simple basic curry and a portion of rice was simply too expensive as such we wouldn't go back again.
I think no matter where one goes to eat one should always get value for money and certainly here in Surrey we have local curry houses that offer much better value for money.

“Smart but just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

We visited with friends as a celebration dinner after nearly 15 years since the last visit.

The restaurant had certainly smartened up since then.

We received a warm welcome and good service.

The food was OK although the starters were small. The main course had a generous serving of meats. The rice was good but the Nan breads were small and mine was the worst I have ever tasted.

For me, the choice of Indian lager or Indian lager didn’t go down well. The Cobra wasn’t too good but the Kingfisher was excellent but at nearly £5 it should have been.

This is not the cheapest place to eat an Indian meal.

I won’t be quick to go again and wouldn’t really recommend it at other than OK.

“what a change for the worse in a year”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

Enjoyed a great meal a year ago, so thought would return this year. Service was pleasent and great decor, but the food was terrible, rice was a pile of stucked together over cooked mess more like a rice pudding. The curry was one of the worst i have tasted, swimming in salt and with a horrible after taste and the thinnest of sauces. I have been eating curries for over 30 years and this goes down as one of the worst. Even though we left most of our meals, no one seemed to care why, we paid our bill and left. Will not be recommending or returning.

“Food excellent”

The service was great too. I always enjoy a night out here, and would recommend it to anyone. Bring back the fish tank, though!
