    we went to many Indian restaurants but this restaurant is the worst that me and my partner have ever been to. The food was horrible. one curry was sour when is meant to be sweet. My partner literally couldn’t eat it. and when the staff asked how it was we told them it was sour that we couldn’t eat it. Her reply I was shocked. she disagreeing with us and said no it’s not sour is sweet no apologies or anything. Any other Indian restaurant or restaurant they would of apologise and offer you a different dish.. some of my lamb what Uncooked! so I couldn’t finish that either. the staff I think she is actually a manager or a owner which is shocking. I have never left a negative review for any restaurant but this I feel I have to. We were on holiday to Weymouth and this actually ruined our holiday. Also she was rude to me. I asked what spicy curry do you recommend. And she told me to read the menu. just a waste of money! We were literally still hungry after and have to get food else where. very disappointed

    Love the easy way to book a table, so quick and efficent. As usual food was delicious and just as we expected. prompt service on arrival. Love the fact we are asked what we want to drink very quickly. No rush to get to the course. Neither of us could eat all food as good generous portions beat us in the end. Will be back. thank you.

    The only comment, was that service was a bit slow to say the least. We have been before & it was far better. Papadoms came out very quickly, but we had to chase our main course. Also when you order a further drink with you main course you need it then not as you almost finish your meal. All said we would go back again. May be the pressure of the Bank Holiday weekend.

    Shalims Balti HouseResponded 4 days ago

    I am sorry for the slow service on your recent visit to us. We were swamped that night. We were short-staffed and busy. Next time you visit, I can assure you things will be better. Shalim

    Have to say a little disappointed. After reading all the fab reviews I really wanted to come away feeling like they were well deserved. Sadly for me it wasn’t the 5 stars. Service wasn’t great not very attentive at all. Food was ok but wasn’t wowed and no deserts. Not even icecream which my daughter was very disappointed with but understand why if they it’s something that doesn’t sell. We were just left once we had finished our meal. Didn’t even ask us if we wanted anymore drinks. I just felt as if we were just a number. We paid and left. Won’t be returning any time soon which is a shame. Maybe it was just an off day

    Shalims Balti HouseResponded on 25 May 2022

    Hi Hammy Thank you for your review. We are very sorry that the service was not up to the standards we strive for. Unfortunately, we were unexpectedly short-staffed over the weekend and that’s why the service was a little lacking. Hopefully on your next visit things will be back to normal. We look forward to seeing you soon.

    On entering we found it very dark. With a mobility problem I was unsure where I was walking especially with the steps down. But then, once seated, light seemed to grow and we were ok. We really enjoyed the whole experience. Food divine. Staff friendly. Good atmosphere. Value for money. Certainly will be visiting again especially ally as we are local.
