The food was absolutely delicious, from the starters to desserts. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. A really nice dining experience, thanks for a great evening. Highly recommended!

I had the pleasure of visiting this hidden gem for a small business dinner. This place is simply vibrant and stunning. The decor and ambience was remarkable and made the whole dining experience well worth it. This was definitely fusion food at its finest! The food was on point and I was impressed with the waiters knowledge of all the dishes and his recommendations for each of us in our group with different taste buds. Lovely to see real chefs with great culinary experience and a real understanding of various modern and traditional cooking methods and ingredients. I will definitely be back very soon.

Best Local Balchao I’ve eaten at Balchao a number of times since it opened. I’ve also had numerous take always from them. The service is first rate and the food always freshly prepared and extremely tasty. They also are flexible about changing up / swapping a main ingredient...M when asked if it’s down as fish and you want prawns not problem which is just one of the reasons this is. Ie my favourite local. I’m pleased to see after a slow start they appear to be filling up now and the atmosphere is very good indeed. They have been running some really good offers of late like the 2 for 1 drinks. Well done Balchao

Fabulous meal and excellent service! Had a wonderful meal with friends on Sunday. The food was presented beautifully and every dish tasted delicious. We particularly enjoyed the unusual 'fusion' type menu selection; so nice to try new dishes and flavours. We also appreciated the very polite, friendly and efficient waiting...M staff. Nothing was too much trouble and indeed it was nice to meet the manager, Mr Pathak, who introduced himself and made sure we were all happy with our meal. In fact, we were so happy we have booked to come back again for my mother's birthday this week! Thank you Balchao.

A delectable evening filled with superb Indian culinary experience….. Spent a wonderful evening celebrating 2 birthdays. Mr Pathak and his team went out of their way to make the evening super enjoyable. Made several efforts to make the birthday boys feel extra special! Mr Pathak’s suggested dishes were spot on hitting the right taste...M buds complimented by the cocktails. The menu has several signature dishes and Mr Pathak was success in converting some of the diners to try dishes that they were hesitant to! Prawn roundel with blueberry sauce was to die for nicely accompanied with banana flower fritters. Chicken Hariyali, Lamb Zardari and the Sorshe Prawns were simply eclectic! I’d recommend anyone looking for true Indian culinary journey to visit Balchao once, am sure they’ll keep coming back. At least I will be returning soon ….
