Delicious! Great food, reasonably priced. You can bring your own drinks, which brings down the price. And the staff were really friendly. There was so much to eat we asked for the remaining food to be boxed up so we could take it home, which they were more than happy to do. We then forgot to but the waiter ran... More

If you're not very familiar with Indian food, don't order hot or very hot food, it's very well spiced. The portions are big and comes in a very hot bowl. You can order nan that's big enough for the entire family.

I went there couple of times but didn't find anything great about the food. There are many better Indian food available in the town.

I've visited here before and gave it maximum stars but on a recent visit with my partner after saying how good this place was I was left with egg on my face. It was very busy and again the naan was huge but the main was gristle and unappetising and flavourless which was such a shame. However I must say... More

My Chicken Chat starter was more like a main course, packed full of spicy chicken. Main course was their Balti Chicken, again loads of it. You don't need a rice dish each, one between two is enough. Then there is the family Naan - absolutely huge, and very tasty. Definitely be returning!

This is a traditional Indian restaurant in the heard of Northampton and is nicely decorated and maintained. Food is great and I have never had a bad meal there. The nan breads, even for one person are huge and taste good as they are lovely and fresh. Prices are reasonable too. Only criticism is that occasionally the air con is... More

I've been now going to Balti Central for over 8 years ( maybe even more) Well since it very first opened. It is your cheap and tasty friday night treat, the food is made fresh and they do cater for picky eaters like me who are diary free and meat free (Vegan), they spice things up on request...and unless its...

Ate here twice last week - both times the service and standard of food were excellent. I'm surprised it isn't a little busier with the Ibis and cinema being just across the road. One little opportunity for improvement - the Kingfisher could do with being a tad colder. But generally excellent and good vale.
