Visited here with friends last week. Not impressed. Popadums and pickle tray ok. Starter bland. Main course of chicken and spinach, which I asked to be medium to hot, was also bland and without spinach. Beer was ok but with two other curry houses as competition within walking distance I think this place needs to improve on the food.

Two recent visits Both times the food was fresh delicious and great quality. Best curry out for ages. Really good service and nice clean place. Chicken bhuna balti and cauliflower potato bhaji both excellent. Also had aubergine salad really tasty. Highly recommend.

Otley cannot be found wanting for places to eat, both takeaway and restaurants this little town has certainly choice aplomb and there all good I must say. However the Balti House stands out head and shoulders above its competitors. The food always has a fresh taste not like some which can have a mass produced warmed up taste to them.... More

I'm a very fussy about my meat and how it is cooked. gave it a try and it was extremely nice. You won't go far wrong if you like a good curry

Yum yum, keeps getting better, great takeaway, excellent value! Meat curry, mixed veg, rice, two chapati, free papadam and pickles thrown in all for £13, plus which portions are big - did us for two meals!

Despite the non descript exterior the interior was nicely kitted out and the food was excellent. Well worth another visit. You should definitely give it a try

I have upped my rating of the Balti House this time. Since my previous veg curry rant last year, we had a takeaway on Friday night, and this time the veg curry was much improved with cauliflower and various other bits and bobs! Mmm some pumpkin or aubergine would be amazing maybe BUT we had mixed veg, meat, rice and... More

We order from here regularly and have never had a bad meal, however this evening the food took a long time to be delivered and it wasn't up to the takeaways usual standard. The food was tepid and the tandoori Roti didn't look as if it had been cooked thoroughly. My husband phoned the restaurant to let them know that... More

Random visit to this restaurant with friends. The menu is very good with a lot of different/unusual dishes that you might not find on other curry menus. Being a 'chilli head' there are a few hot naga dishes which looked interesting. I chose the Naga Tarkari which was really nice and full of flavour (not particularly hot though!). The rest... More
