When you enter this restaurant, they are incredibly friendly and seem to really care about your business. The food is excellent..a little different from the usual - perhaps because the proprietors seem young. They also deliver - quickly, and again, seem to really care about your order and value your custom. Food is superb.

I have visited Balaka on many occasions, the food is Brilliant, and the staff are very friendly. If you love curry then this place should be on your list of places to come. You won't be disappointed.
Well worth a visit !

Great staff, wonderful atmosphere, Fantastic food, the duck was so tender. Very well priced. This is our 4th visit, will definitely return, shame it's not closer to home.

We visited Balaka on a Friday and I am glad that we booked the place was heaving and long ques of people in the front reception waiting for takaways. Although the staff were under pressure ( we later found out they were also catering a function for Mercedes World) it did no affect the quality. They do very unusual dishes including two monkfish duck and lamb that were all new tio us. There were some items on the starters that we had also not tried before a sort of potato rosti stuffed with Spinach, Chick peas and Chillies hot but delicious.
If its a first visit I would go mid week when the staff have more time to explain the menue and the specialities

The food was bland, and the service was poor. Told the manager at the end of the meal and he blamed the poor service on a couple of waiters calling in sick. The staff were often standing around and not paying attention.

There are far better Indan restaurants in Woking. We will not be back.
