Balans Soho Society brings its bohemian spirit to Kensington High Street, creating a café, restaurant, bar and member’s establishment where normal rules don’t apply. Reflecting the eccentric ethos of Soho, they are refuge for bon vivants, dreamers and anyone who embraces the indulgent side of life.

Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, and morale boosting cocktails, the Balans Soho Society menu reflects the restaurant’s libertine outlook. Savour the pulled pork wrap with bourbon-flamed barbecue sauce and triple-cooked chips, Cornish crab linguine with chilli, or the Infamous Balans Burger, packed with Swiss cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, dill pickle and red onion.

The quirky interior at Balans Soho Society provides the perfect spot to sample something indulgent from the eclectic cocktail list. A welcome haven of refuge from the busy Kensington High Street to gobble, quaff and natter.

Balans Soho Society – Kensington High Street is a 3-minute walk from High Street Kensington Tube Station.

    Excellent service. Scallops and cauliflower floret starter was excellent and the choice of main courses was difficult because there were so many that I really fancied. Really enjoyed the whole dining experience.

    Found hair in an appetiser. Had this been anywhere else we would have not paid for our meal and have received better overall service to compensate for this. In addition, the service staff spilled the drink on one of our bags- and that's ok it happens. However, they cleaned it with the same cloth they used to wipe the drink off the floor. So they wiped the floor and then they "cleaned" the purse... The manager tried to make things better but overall it didn't work and the main reason is that the actions were not genuine but seemed rather forced- despite all the serious things that went wrong.

    Wonderful staff!! Wonderful food. Great cocktails. Had the Burger and it really was the best. Havent tasted chargrilled flavour like that since i was a kid. Brought back great memories. Started with asparagus, scotch egg and ham, was delicious. Superb experience all in all.

    Served my purpose for a quick bite before a show perfectly. The service was prompt and very kind. The ambiance of the place is lovely. The food was very nice.

    I absolutely love it! The sweetest waiter in the universe, David, served the most wonderful food. Try the quinoa salad with feta cheese, it's amazing! They have great smoothies (not on the menue) and the ambience - like in a fairytale (Alice's Wonderland-ish), cool enough for men to like it! They definitely own the key to my dining out heart!

    Tasty breakfast in a relaxed atmosphere. Reasonably priced given the location and quality of food. Staff were very friendly and accommodating for us, our friends and our 1 year old son. Recommended!
