So shocked to see this Balans has closed! Used to come here a lot for breakfast, lunch and occasionally cocktails and loved it! I've visited the Westfield branch and the Kensington one and they just don't compare... Not only was this one local but so...More

Balan's restaurant was recommended to us by the staff at the front desk of the Nadler Kensington. My daughter has Celiac disease and we needed a restaurant that would accommodate her gluten free diet. Balan's was willing to adapt their menu for her. Even so,...More

Nothing less than an excellent breakfast! So good actually that we went two days in a row. Go for the Balans Jumbo breakfast, very good value at 9.95 sterling with fresh orange juice. Attentive and welcoming staff!

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
