Description: ‘A modern British menu is a roll call of exactly the sort of food you want to eat. Forget your diet here...’ Food and Travel Magazine Balans Soho Society brings Old Compton Street savoir-faire and its award-winning all-day menu to West London. After shopping and promenading around Westfield Shopping Centre, Shepherds Bush lose a morning, afternoon or evening in the finest way possible. Perfect for a restorative coffee, (or perhaps something stronger), breakfast, brunch, lunch, cocktails, after-work drinks, supper and every occasion in-between. Whatever the time, relaxed, sociable dining is the order of the day. Bohemian, gregarious, sophisticated and perhaps just a touch eccentric - a place to abandon your plans - Balans is the quintessential Soho experience.

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.
