    Our first time at balans didn't know what to expect.
    Three of us all thought the service, food and everything about the place was excellent.

    Great service, fab atmosphere, ideal for drinks and brunch with friends.

    My cup was dirty. I found it strange that I was supposed to eat the rather thin tomato sauce of my dish with a long-pronged fork rather than be given a spoon. I had ordered the eggs in hell and halfway through got a bad mouthful of chili that left me in tears - the rest of the dish wasn't even that spicy, so that took me rather off-guard. I thought it was ungenerous to give me single slice of bread when I asked to have toast instead of the potatoes that came with my dish. Waiter dripped water on my foot when refilling the glasses. They were using a very loud machine (for breaking ice?) at one point, which made it impossible to have a conversation for about five minutes. Overall a lack of attention to detail and I wouldn't recommend it.

    Had the best red chicken curry I've ever had. The service and atmosphere was first class. Value for money and will definitely be going back.
