A firm favourite with curry fans, this long-established Indian restaurant along Bournemouth’s longest stretch of bars, clubs and restaurants serves up authentic, exquisitely spiced dishes for all palettes. It may have a big reputation but the Balti House extends a warm and local welcome to every visitor through its door. From its namesake Baltis to Tandooris to Biryanis, meat, seafood, specials and set menus (and continental dishes if you’re not fussed on Indian food), pull up a pew and enjoy these complex and lovingly constructed flavours and aromas. If you don’t fancy hitting the town the Balti House also does a roaring trade in takeaway orders. Free delivery if you spend over £12.
