Both the food and service was excellent. Balans had a great buzz and a lovely atmosphere. We were a party of 4 and we all loved it.

    Very friendly and ultra efficient service. It was my partners birthday. My wife. And the food was tasty. Great atmosphere. Thank you.

    Set in the heart of Soho, so obviously bustling even on a Wednesday. Dinner for two without dessert and one starter, was a little steep. The restaurant is gorgeous! The decor was not as flamboyant as I would have thought but quite cool. The seared scallops were perfection. But my well done burger was a little too well done. Perhaps next time I will request bloody ??

    My friend and I really enjoyed this 20s themed restaurant/bar. The decor is great, the menu for dinner has quite a nice selection. We had the scallops, duck salad, and spinach ricotta ravioli. There is an extensive drink menu, so plenty of choice. The service was superb, I felt that the servers were attentive and genuinely nice people. Can't wait to come back another day for brunch.

    Good service on the day from attentive and charming waiter who quickly sussed out I am deaf and who adapted his approach accordingly. When booking, I also asked for a table with good lighting and this was accommodated. The food was good. Only slight problem was the acoustics and which meant my companion at times struggled to hear what I was saying.

    The atmosphere was great , staff friendly and polite, but the food has gone down hill, and was over cooked, and over priced.
