My first time at The Balti House since it moved from the CBD. This place has long been one of my two most favourite Indian restaurants in Wellington and I'm pleased to say that I was not disappointed on my return to the new setting. The new premises are not as upmarket as the original and from the outside at... More

The other curry was chicken korma and butter chicken and garlic Naan which was good... More

Delicious Indian. Possibly the best in Wellington. I go there at least once a week now.. and I am fussy. I love the Mango Lassis and the Palak Paneer. More people should know about this place.

I often go to this restaurant and get the butter chicken and garlic naan. I have also tried other dishes from this restaurant and I have to say I absolutely love them, they make very tasty and flavoursome dishes. The music and service is also great and it's also a great restaurant to bring the whole family. I would have... More

The entree (chicken tikka) was tasty but had a different crust (could not make it what it was), I did not like it but my friend did like it. The main (Chicken Korma) was yummy and had complimentary rice with it (wish had the options... More

I was a regular costumer of the Balti house when it was in town and I was quite sad when it moved out, further away from my house. Nevertheless I'm going to the Balti whenever I can and the new environment is really nice, while the food blessedly remains the same! I love their curries and tandori chicken, but above... More
