Dining With Stars

Royal Balti - The Star of the Silver Screen!

Not only is our food famous, but the restaurant itself has featured in television shows, appearing in both Channel 4's Phoenix Nights, and BBC2's The Cup!

Pictured here is Dave Spikey, star of Phoenix Nights, enjoying one of our traditional Indian dishes.

The stars and crew of both these shows have eaten here, and we regularly play host to celebrities, dignitaries and sports personalities. Here are just a few quotes from our Visitor's Book:
