Their philopsophy is "best plan is no plan". Well, our plan turned out to be Balans Soho Society for three meals during our four-day visit to London. Had lunch at this one. Again fabulous burger and great red curry.
We chose this restaurant as we have with most of the others on this trip, by walking around and finding a good sounding menu and an inviting atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful. Everything we ate was delicious. We all enjoyed the food: ham hock croquettes, duck, burgers and the thyme roasted chicken. My son had the battered Haddock,... 更多
I love the new refurbishment, it's so much easier to have a conversation now the acoustics have improved. As much as the Balans menu was'in-famous for never changing, the menu has changed, but unfortunately not for the better. The current menu feels liken attempt at going 'up-market' - to be fair, it is just not to my taste, nor does... 更多
A group of 7 of us descended on this restaurant mid week, after a call to see if they could accommodate a large group on short notice. The space is well decorated - kind of light upscale goth with a twist - very mild, but attractive. They had prepared a long table in the center of the restaurant for our... 更多
First let me say that I am a serious critic of chain restaurants, I feel that they lose quality in the chain-becoming process. Balans a complete exception to this rule, they are a consistently fantastic chain restaurant, this review is for the Kensington branch purely because it's the closest to my house and therefore the one I dine at most.... 更多
Three of us went here for lunch, en route to Royal Albert Hall to see Royal Philharmonic, "The Planets.........AWESOME !!! Anyway.......back to the review. Menu was good and we all chose the Balans Special Burgers. They were great, so were the chunky chips. Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially helping to choose cocktails. I had a"Vesper"............one was enough !!!!... 更多
We just can´t get enough of this place! We always have the Red curry dish with chicken and noodles, and I highly reccomend it to everyone who likes their food a bit spicy. The staff is excellent and the place itself very nice, clean and comfortable.
Used to love this spot for my girly catchups when I lived in London. Decided to go back for lunch while I was there for the weekend. It was still good however they've made a few changes since. The chairs aren't comfortable at all which when you trying to relax isn't great. The staff were pleasant and when our chicken... 更多
Went for late breakfast/brunch. Good choice of food; usual but still good. French toast were well made and only thing I could suggest is that at this price two pieces of toast would be appreciated rather than a single french toast. Eggs were well made. Americano Coffee will need an extra shot for those that like their coffee strong. Bloody... 更多
