All spices are imported from suppliers we have been using for the last 10 years, sourced worldwide.

Can I home freeze our order?
With a few obvious exceptions all meals are suitable for home freezing.
Can you Cater for Parties, Weddings etc?
Yes we can and are happy to discuss requirements, we can cater for up to 150 people. We frequently cater for Indian weddings.
Why is there an order-after deadline?
On closure of the order book, required fresh produce has to be purchased and cooked freshly. Therefore we need the time to do this prior to delivery. All of our foods are prepared fresh and nothing is frozen. We do not keep any frozen stock as this is not permissible under the terms of our license.
What if I miss the order deadline?
We may still be able to provide you with your meals however the menu we can offer may be limited to whatever we have not cooked yet. Give us a call and we will tell you what we can offer.
What if I need an order on other than a delivery day?
Provided we are not committed elsewhere we are happy to cook specially for you subject to a minimum order for 10 meals. Please call us.
What is the Birmingham Balti Association?
The aim of the association is to get protected status for the Birmingham Balti the same as “Melton Mobray” Pork Pies, “Scotch” Whiskey, “Champagne” etc. The Birmingham Balti is cooked in a unique way and differently to other Baltis. Our recipes and cooking methods had to be audited by the association before we could join.
