“Good - could be great”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We've eaten here twice now, and had a couple of delivered take outs as well. The setting is very nice, full of character, through the music on our most recent visit was too loud and quite intrusive. There are some interesting menu choices, and most of what we have had has been good, some of it very good. I do feel the quality of the chicken used could be a LOT better, and we have found the 'medium' curries ( 2 chills on the menu) are quite mild - could definitely be a bit hotter without being in the 'hot' category - maybe next time we will ask them if they can adjust. However the flavours of all the curries we have had have been good. On the other hand the naan bread was absolutely brilliant - light, fluffy, tasty - and being able to take your own wine or beer is a plus point. I do think they are overcharging on some of the side dishes, and the cucumber raita was bland, watery and poor. Reasonable value for money, I think with a little more imagination, a few changes to the food and attention to detail, this could be very good not just good.

Great atmosphere, food and value for money. Don't sell alcohol, but you can take your own and no charge. Intimate lovely original beamed old building.

“Best Balti in Bradford”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Been a regular customer for years. Tried a few other Balti houses in Bradford but nothing comes near. Food is outstanding, service is excellent and the portions very generous. Don't think we've ever left without a doggy bag for breakfast the next morning! Take out just as good and again big big portions. Highly recommended.

“Great atmosphere, but that's where it ends”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We have regularly frequented the Balti House over the years, but in recent times, the food & service have gone off a bit. I have often found the food far too salty, which I cannot have anymore due to health reasons & my request for low/no salt dishes cannot be accommodated, so we have started going to Jani's. We have occasionally found the staff a little sullen & not overly welcoming, even on one occasion being hurried along so they can get another customer in after us, This is such a shame because the atmosphere & ambiance are superb due to the old building. Wooden beams etc.
