About Bombay Balti

Bombay Balti has for years been one of the tastiest and most affordable Indian eateries in Lancaster’s city centre, and these days it’s as reliable as ever. Right by Lancaster Castle on China Street, just a short walk from Lancaster station, Bombay Balti is a top choice for anybody passing through the city looking for authentic, satisfying Indian and Bangladeshi food. Their friendly staff are always happy to help you through the long menu of tandoori, balti, saag, keema, biryani and other classic dishes, though for something a bit different we recommend trying one of the chef’s specialties, particularly the fiery naga featuring the famous Bangladeshi hot naga chilli pickle, or some delicious vegetarian choices like deresh (an okra-based dish flavoured with fenugreek and coriander) or beguni (a fairly dry aubergine dish similar to bhuna with a bit of a kick).

Very tasty dishes as ever. Good service. Our guest were impressed. The early bird menu represents exceptional value for money. Another very happy evening at the Bombay Balti. We'll certainly be back.

We have visted Bombay Balti several times and have never been disappointed. This vsit was no exception. My wife has no palate for "the hot stuff" but always finds a fine selection of very good, mildly flavoured alternatives. Her choice this time was the Akbari Chicken Korma which she declared "absolutely delicious". I went for the Bombay Special Biryani and was very well pleased with my selection - a superb combination of flavours and textures as one looks for in a biryani. A good jug of Mango Lassi made a great accompaniment to the meal. As ever the quantities were more than generous. We came away feeling decidedly replete.

We were a party of 6 for my husbands birthday. We were greeted on our entrance and although it was quiet, we were served quickly. our food was nice but not outstanding. We have been several times over the past years but dont go frequently and feel it is looking a little dated. Everyone enjoyed there food except my daughters korma, which she said had too much coconut and the rice which came with the meal was overcooked. Overall it was a pleasant meal and reasonable and for that reason we would return.

Enjoyed the meal on the whole but was put off with the gentleman who was smoking a vape on the next table,next to my children I brought it up with a waitress who said it wasn't allowed in the restaurant but it wasn't addressed by anyone.

Great service in arrival and excellent meal and rating would've been higher but for the service after we had eaten. After table had been cleared we sat for 40 minutes with no service at all, not being offered desert, coffee or further drinks! As a result we chose to leave and paid on way out! Disappointing end to what was a lovely meal.
