The Rishton Balti House is an award-winning Indian restaurant and takeaway in Blackburn.
The seating area mainly consists of booths, which makes for a private and intimate environment in which to enjoy the excellent food and service.
Booking is recommended, and an online booking facility is available via the website (you can also call to make a booking). Late opening hours mean you can pick a time to suit you, and you can bring your own alcoholic drinks to this unlicensed restaurant. If you’ve got room, after your main course you can order dessert, from classic ice creams through to mini doughnuts and the intriguingly-named Oreo Cookie Bash.
If you’re in the mood for a takeaway, this Blackburn Indian also offers free local delivery and online ordering using a secure card payment system. There’s an option to order in advance, so you’re first in line when the restaurant opens, and you can choose ‘click and collect’ if you'd prefer to pick up your order in person. There are some interesting options on the menu, beyond curry, offering something for everyone - from pizza and garlic bread to burgers, kebabs and fried chicken. There’s even a special, dinosaur-themed kids menu, so there’s no need for anyone to go hungry!
This Indian takeaway in Blackburn has 4.5 stars on Trip Advisor, with reviewers praising the food, the service and the atmosphere. One reviewer has been a regular customer for more than 10 years, and another couple make a 25-mile trip to eat here every Friday evening.
You can be assured that these regular customers are benefitting from the Balti House Loyalty Points scheme, which gives loyalty points on every order (eat in and take away). Rewards can be claimed once you’ve reached 500 points and can be used to pay for more food, or you can save up and exchange them for shopping vouchers to use elsewhere.
This wonderful balti house experience started in the 1930s when Mohammed Rashid began cooking for community events in a small Pakistani village.
Rooted in traditional Pakistani recipes, his food quickly became legendary. His son continued the family tradition, opening up a busy restaurant in Nakodar.
His son opened their first UK business in 1969, and his sons opened the Balti House in 2001, meaning that when you order from this Indian takeaway, you're experiencing four generations of food!
