With a being your own drinks policy this is an excellent local with provided excellent value for money. From my experience when contrasting this restaurant with other similars in the area, the food seems to be somewhat mild but intense with flavour. The vindaloo, which I often can't manage due to the heat in other places, was fine here and fantastic. Not as hot as you may find in other places but the amount of flavour I managed to get from it is unmatched thus far!!

Service can sometimes be slow, due to peak hours. We have been waiting as long as 40-50 minutes before to have our orders taken, though this did seem to be a particular bad night. One star list for this but still a fine local establishment which impressed us again and again and keeps us coming back.

Of course we'll be back again before long.

With not many places serving food in Shifnal on a Sunday evening, our hand was forced in one respect and we visited Shifnal Balti more out of necessity than choice.

This will be a very short review as there's nothing more I can add that people haven't said before me. It's a clean establishment, the decor is modern and the staff are friendly and approachable.

The main course was great and I really enjoyed it albeit it took quite a while to arrive on what was a relatively quiet night. They can be forgiven for that as I assume it was cooked from fresh which takes time.

Will be back again soon.

We have been visiting the Shifnal Balti since it opened over 15 years ago. It has seen many changes, including expansions a full refurbishment and change of management but the food has always been good and the service friendly, it remains to this day as one of my favourite places to eat in Shifnal.
