Balans is one of those places you immediately love the minute you walk in the door. The atmosphere is simply electric and is seeping out of the walls. It has a real buzz.
The tables are crammed in but you still feel that you can have a quiet intimate meal if that is the way you want it.
The waiters are very friendly and excellent at catering for your every need. Pleasant and helpful they add to the whole Balans experience.
The food is wonderful. I have been scores of times now and there is very little left on the menu for me to try and I will have no problem starting from the very beginning again and working my way through once more!
A particular favourite has to be the Halloumi cakes, or is it the Polenta and goats cheese, or is it the quesadilla, or the crispy duck salad, or Thai chicken....you get the picture!
ONE DEFINITE MUST is the Baileys Cheesecake...the most amazing taste and a very sexy end to a wonderful meal.
The cocktails are a little pricey but WELL worth it....if you feel daring try the Weeping Jesus.
A great place for many occasions...intimacy, or simply a chatty and fun meal with a group of friends. Balans should be on your top 5 places to eat when you visit london.
