The food at the Balaka is always excellent: the menu includes well-known favourites but also some house specials which are particularly worth sampling. The portions are well-sized without being too huge, and the service is usually very efficient, Added to this, the restaurant is just a short walk from our house so we are fairly regular customers. We have taken... More

By far and away the best curry in Woking that we have found and don't want to try anywhere else as it's so good. We have only eaten in the restaurant once but always get our take away curry from Balaka. The food is consistently delicious! However on our one visit to the restaurant we found the service to be...

As a long living resident in Horsell village, I am proud to be living near very good restaurants in Horsell village. Sadly, I am going to cross The Balaka off my list of favourite local eateries. The three of us were very much looking forward to a high quality curry at The Balaka. On first impression I thought it was... More

The food at the Balaka is second to none, absolutely fabulous. The service is great, the manager really cares about his customers and their experience at the Balaka. If you have not tried the Sunday buffet then do. It is not the normal buffet which has been cooked since 10am and then sitting around all day, but freshly cooked for... More

We have tried 4 different indian takeaways in Woking since moving here in November and this is by far the best. It was well seasoned and packed full of flavour. Will definitely be ordering from here in the future.

We were warmly welcomed and the fact that part of our group arrived quite a bit later than the others was well managed. They were very understanding of the catering needs of the young boy we had with us. The food was tasty and cooked to perfection. Altogether a lovely evening.

We have been here once before and found the service and food great, sadly not last night. We had to wait to be seated for a while, as the staff thought chatting to the takeaway orders people more important. We were shown to a tiny table for two and when we asked to be seated at a larger table (there... More
