    Hi Sarah, Thanks for your review. The tastecard discount is not available on takeaway dishes. This is noted in the FAQ section of the website, which reads the following : "Does the tastecard discount apply to takeaways? Unfortunately the tastecard discount does not apply to takeaways. Members must dine in the restaurant to receive the discount." I hope that this helps. Kind regards, The tasteteam

    I have eaten here a few times using the tastecard most of the time it has been a large group of around 10 or more.

    The fact that Balti King do not put a limit on the number of people is fantastic. No issues using tastecard and they usually just subtract the 50%.

    Food has been great each time I've been and there is a wide variety. Staff are attentive efficient.

    Would recommend. "
