The Prince Balti is under new ownership and I am hopeful that people will be supportive of this small local restaurant. The owner and the waiter are both very pleasant,attentive but unobtrusive and you can see there has already been investment in the decor -...More

By far the worst Indian restaurant EVER EVER EVER! I can't believe this place survives considering all the consistently bad reviews. It's one saving grace was some nice nan bread, apart from that this place is positively a bio-hazard. If you like living and enjoy...More

I cannot recommend this restaurant. The waiter was surly, we never ever received our drinks, the food cold and tasteless (the lamb tasted like old beef and the Alloo gobi was off). To cap it off the prices were high. Do not eat here!!
