18th anniversary T&K Balti House restaurant
Mr. Abu Taher, MBE & Mr. Mustafa Kamal first introduced the Balti revolution to the people of Leicester in 1993. Historically, Leicester had been the home of many traditional a la Carte Restaurants, but the Balti had yet to emerge.
Balti is an Indian version of an Iron Wok. Food is normally cooked in a large Balti, and small baltis are great for serving food at the table as they make for an authentic look and taste. Baltis will differ greatly in their taste and content, not only between regions, but also within different areas of the reigion. Baltis will also vary between chefs. No two chefs make identical meals, as each chef will have his specific style to add to that important personal touch to a meal.
T&K Balti House’s Balti (karahi) introduced the people of Leicester to a different name, taste and ingredients. The Balti has similar meanings to those used in the different regions of the Asian sub-continent. It is originally from the Punjab, but it shares similarities with Bangladeshi cuisine with its use of enriched spices and complete country style of cooking.
T&K Balti House has always been committed to undertaking fund raising events in the aid of good causes and charitable events. One such example is the annual charity dinner on behalf of the Lord Mayor’s Appeal. T&K Balti House has been supporting the Lord Mayor’s Appeal for the last 18 years and is very grateful for the kind donations of their loyal customers who attend the event every year.
T&K Balti House has received numerous accolades for its high standard of cuisine. The freshness of the ingredients has played a pivotal role in helping T&K Balti win such prestigious awards as ‘The Guild of Master Caterers’ amongst others. This high standard of consistency is maintained throughout the menu, providing regular and new customers with a high level of satisfaction with every meal.
The support of T&K Balti House’s loyal customers has been crucial in this tough economic climate. T&K Balti House has only achieved what it has through the efforts of our staff and support of our loyal customers. Our inspiration and commitment to our customers and to the people of Leicester has not wavered and is stronger than ever before. We will endeavour to further advance the services and provide the best for our clientele, as without you we are not worthy of any of the accolates that we have received.
