Shoeme balti house is up and running and giving out its warmth and spice back to Southwold which I'm sure it's missed. Good to be back seeing our lovely customers.

There aren't many options for curry in Southwold, so we always end up getting takeaway from here once or twice every time we stay there. Never spectacular, but always perfectly reasonable food, and the owner is very friendly and always makes a fuss of children...More
