Description: In 1987, on a beautiful street corner in Soho, our Balans story began. Originally called The Old Compton Café, we set out to serve the City of London great food and drink, at all hours of the day. 33 years later and not much has changed, apart from our name of course. Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, Soho No.34 is still standing on that same street corner and still waiting to welcome you in. Effortless and enduring, there’s nowhere better to find yourself than Balans.

Great food, sat outside under a gazebo.
Pretty busy place, reasonable prices.

Need to be there early to avoid the queues.

It is so wonderful to be able to socialize and enjoy the cosmopolitan and quirky atmosphere of Soho and Balans. The staff are great and despite the Saturday rush have the time to engage and make people feel human again. Hats off to Haytham Abdulqadr who made sure we were made to feel special and treated as important customers. Bravo !

Amazing food, great drinks and fantastic atmosphere. A London staple! Eggs in hell are my favourite as well as the rogue passion cocktail!

After I complained about a bad service, the staff member (Ovidiu) told me that I should write a bad review about him (kind of a joke/challenge) and here I am...shame on you.
