One of the best in the area, menu could do with an update, prices good but it can get very busy at weekends.

Our first time at the Balaka and very pleased with it, my wife got a groupon voucher for a mid week meal out, the staff were very welcoming and attentive although they did say they were understaffed we did not notice. The food was really nice and fresh tasting and we will certainly go back.

We had no idea this restaurant existed which explains why we bought the Groupon Voucher. The restaurant does not look like much from the outside but do not let that put you off - if the visual factor is important to you. We were kindly and professionally received by our host who had record of our booking and a table... More

I booked a table for my mum and I as a last minute thought. The booking was made easily with very accommodating staff. We arrived early, however, the restaurant rapidly filled up. The staff were attentive and friendly, bringing out courses in rapid succession. In a nutshell... Great service. Great food. Great value. Will definitely come again 👍

This is by far the best Indian restaurant in Woking. The staff are attentive friendly and are on hand with advice on which dish to choose. If they don't have a dish you like they will make it for you. Great atmosphere

Always a warm welcome - even if we are late arrivals - and friendly service with great food. Fresh interesting dishes - with some different options from the usual curry menu.
