    We had dinner at Balans on a Tuesday evening. The food, drinks, and service were all excellent...but the music was absolutely atrocious! The (very loud) playlist seemed to be a selection of all the MOST explicit and vulgar songs they could find. Swearing doesn't generally bother me, but no one wants to hear "Tonight I'm f***ing you" and "I'm gonna s*** all over you", etc. over and over again while trying to enjoy a nice meal with friends.

    6 of us ate on a friday at 7pm. I love going here but tonight the service was so slow, we had to send one dish back as it was burnt and it took 35 mins to get our first drinks! Not the standard I am used to here, must do better !

    As always the atmosphere was warm and welcoming and food was delicious. Overall the service was pleasant and engaging. However, we did wait quite a while to pay our bill and it wasn’t very busy which was slightly irritating.

    The staff were super friendly and attentive. With it having been such a hot day, they even turned the A/C up! It was much appreciated :)
    Food was tasty and portions sizes were great value for money. Cocktails are reasonably priced too!

    I have always enjoyed Balans but I have to say I wasn’t as impressed this time around . I had the crab linguini which was very tasty . My friend had the curry but was really not impressed as the rice was hard and the overall taste of the curry was not satisfying. She was given fresh rice but it didn’t manage to improve the taste. The porn star martinis were way too sweet that we didn’t want to drink them , this was quite sad as we always enjoyed this particular cocktail at Balans soho . However we did have decent service from Marek and he did make me a a very good espresso martini All in All I wouldn’t be in a hurry to go back .

    Returned to Balkans after an absence of a few months. The service and atmosphere were both good but the food we had was pretty mediocre and bland.
