Finally after many months on my list I visited Balbir’s Indian Restaurant.

I had heard from a few people here was very good, and the food was mega tasty so I had to see what it was like.

On entering tonight it was a busy busy night and we were told they were fully booked, but there was one table that was a maybe for us. The reason it was a maybe was a famous snooker player was late, and they didn’t know if they should allow it to be rebooked or not.

Lucky for us they allowed it to be rebooked.

The Food…

Spicy Calamari (1/2 Hot) £5.50
Squid coated red chilli, with sharp tamarind dip


For me this is one dish that either will be good, or too chewy but when its good its very good so I thought I would see what it was like here plus the spicy part sounded interesting.

For me this was perfect, the Calamari was not chewy and very tasty. The spice part to this dish was not over powering.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4.5
Presentation : 4
Value For Money : 5

Malai Korma £10.90
A mild curry, cooked in onion gravy with cream


I love Korma so when I go to any Indian restaurant for a first time this is one dish I always have, some places are meh and some are mmm

The Korma here was nice, very creamy but it was lacking a little more coconut taste for me as thats what I am kinda used to when I get a Korma.

Overall it was a really nice flavour, and a good portion size but maybe just a little bit too costly for Korma….and needed a little more coconut flavour to but thats a personal taste.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4
Presentation : 5
Value For Money : 4


Overall my first time here was very good, it was very very busy tonight which is great for the business.

The food was very tasty and not lacking in flavour, the service and staff were all very good.

Looking forward to my next visit.
