I had been in Sheffield for almost a year and hadn’t been to Bulters Balti, which many people in halls assured me was not a very good idea. Apparently it served good Indian food. Which everyone here calls “curry”. I kid you not. So when someone in UK says, “Let’s go have curry”, they mean, “Let’s go to an Indian restaurant”. You have been warned.
I went with two friends, and all three of us decided to order from their set menu, which is £12.50 per person. It comprises starters, the main course, sundries and sweets. The starters we chose were – apart from poppadums and dips which are included – seekh kabab, samosas and onion bhaji. The samosas and onion bhaji were pronounced good, although I felt the seekh kabab was a bit too dry for my taste.
For main course, we had Chicken Tikka Masala, Lamb Tikka Masala and Chicken Jalfrezi. All have been given a thumbs-up! Two of us opted for garlic naan and the third went for Pilau rice.
I insisted my friends try the kulfi, as they had no idea what it was. They both went for the mango kulfi and I decided to get the pistachio kulfi. They did like it, so I have converted them to trying out more Indian sweets next time.
Good experience overall. Decent food at an extremely good price for the package they offered.
