There is so much to choose from on the menu, it's just as well every portion, served separately, is able to be shared. And they are generous enough that there may be leftovers, which taste just as good, if not better the next day

My first time at The Balti House since it moved from the CBD. This place has long been one of my two most favourite Indian restaurants in Wellington and I'm pleased to say that I was not disappointed on my return to the new setting.

Delicious Indian. Possibly the best in Wellington. I go there at least once a week now.. and I am fussy. I love the Mango Lassis and the Palak Paneer. More people should know about this place.

I often go to this restaurant and get the butter chicken and garlic naan. I have also tried other dishes from this restaurant and I have to say I absolutely love them, they make very tasty and flavoursome dishes. The music and service is also great and it's also a great restaurant to bring the whole family. I would have... More
