Went with a group of 8 for a friend's birthday. We ordered two mixed startes which were small and not meant to share (though this may be obvious to others...). The group enjoyed Kingfisher beers and very reasonably priced wine. The "baltis" were a nice touch but unfortunately very hard to share, we were under the impression that balti suggested a communal dish. The food was quite tasty and no one could possible go hungry with a family naan on the table. Though they charge 1 pound for the chutney/achar/relish accompaniment - they are very flavorful and worth the extra quid.
The most frustrating thing was the service. We were practically begging them to clear the table of used glasses, dishes etc, until we finally gave up and started stacking our used dishes at one end of the table. The waiter STILL took 5 minutes to clear these - unbelievable. The final bill was higher than I estimated and with no breakdown for the different charges, which made it difficult to know why the price seemed higher than expected (still a very good deal though).
That said, I would go their again with a buddy to get my own "balti" of curry and naan for the before 7 deal, but certainly not a place for a nice dinner or a date (nor a group).
