It's consistently good on all fronts but the eat-in experience is significantly better than take-away. The presentation is excellent and it the portions are very generous. Excellent local Indian with emphasis on decent food rather than frills and pretention - Horsell is lucky to have it.

I regularly eat at Balaka and the food and service is of a consistently high quality. I have a fussy 10 year old that they always make a special effort with. Love the square china!!

Have been to this restaurant several times and it never fails to impress! The food is of a very high standard and the wine selection is also very good.

Ordered a few times from here.. First time was truly great. Ordered specials (expensive) and it was beautiful.. Ordered again with standard menu items..just average... I'll give it ago again, but if it's poor, then no more..

Went here last night with 3 friends. The place was busy and had a great atmosphere. The food was excellent. I ordered a starter that wasn't on the menu and they were very happy to accommodate. The owner came and talked to us at the end of the evening and was a fantastic fella. Loved the place. Will definitely be... More

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
