Description: Balans Soho Society brings its bohemian spirit to Westfield, creating a cafe, restaurant, bar and member's establishment where normal rules don't apply. Reflecting the eccentric ethos of Soho, Balans Westfield is a refuge for bon vivants, dreamers and anyone who embraces the indulgent side of life. Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, and morale boosting cocktails, the Balans 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 Shepherd's Bush contrasts the covered outdoor terrace which provides the perfect spot to sample the eclectic cocktail list.Balans Soho Society at Westfield offers a welcoming sanctuary from the shopping centre. Shepherd's Bush, Shepherd's Bush Market, and Wood Lane tube stations are all a short walk away.

Stumbled across this amidst the restaurants and the grilled lobster at below £18 incl sides cannot be beaten. The menu is quite extensive and The portions were very filling. We chose different cocktails which varied in prices and tastes. Of course you are tempted for the second cocktail. The champagne was somewhat pricey. There's a different menu for early diners too. Our waiter was very accommodating and the service was quick. There's a reward card scheme too. I'd definately return and may be try the early evenings on Fridays and extend it to late dinner :)

Great cocktails, wide variety and at a reasonable price! Good to go early evening when there is a two for one offer on!

Food also good but tend to go in there for cocktails only.

We popped in at the weekend before going to the Theatre. Good quick service with an excellent friendly waiter. Good choice on menu and food served speedily. Our food was excellent but the plates were cold. Hence rating very good and not excellent. Will go there again if we come to the centre in the future. Highly recommended.

This restaurant offers a nice selection of snacks as well as complete meals. The staff is friendly. Balans has an open kitchen so you can see what's going on...Nice place to have a bite before, after and in between shopping at the Westfield.
