We say…

The Peak District is an area of outstanding natural beauty, but it’s also packed with amazing places to eat. One of these restaurants is the Balti, situated in the gorgeous Matlock Bath, a historic town filled with museums, arcades and conservation areas, as well as illuminations along the river. The Balti restaurant in Matlock is perfect whether you’ve been buys exploring the Peak District all day, or if you just live nearby and fancy treating yourself to one of Derbyshire’s favourite Indian eateries.

The restaurant sticks true to traditional Indian restaurant roots, with classic, clean décor with plenty of fresh flowers and and white tablecloths to make the customers feel well catered for. Don’t be afraid to ask if you want a food or drink recommendation, or if you’d like to tweak a dish for your tastes or dietary requirements, as the warm and friendly waiting staff are always happy to help.

As you might expect from this local favourite, the menu is very wide ranging and will suit anyone’s needs. For a starter, try the delicious chicken chaat puri, diced chicken with a blend of fresh spices served on freshly baked hot Puri bread. We also love the aloo pakoras and vegetable samosas. In fact, the Balti has gained a following with local vegetarians thanks to its efforts to cater just as well for non-meat eaters as their usual clientele, bestsellers in their pure vegetarian range include shahi paneer with ginger, garlic and spices, and the Southern Indian lentil dish Tarkha dahl. If your tastes lean more towards meat than vegetables, then make sure you sample one of the Balti’s speciality dishes, such as the mild, creamy chicken kagani, or the Balti special with a complex, aromatic taste.

For a traditional Indian meal in Matlock Bath, you should head to the Balti restaurant, as it’s one of the finest Indian restaurants that the Peak District has to offer.
