60-62 Old Compton Street, London, United Kingdom, W1D 4UG  map 

The gayest, most popular restaurant on Soho’s Old Compton Street. BALANS serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and is open around the clock. Bigger on the inside than you might assume from the front entrance.

Good food, great cocktails, handsome waiters and reasonable prices. Free WiFi. This is the place to be seen. Reservations recommended for Friday or Saturday nights.

  1. D Darren
    Great food

    “Really enjoyed my meal here.“

  2. R Robbie
    Nice, but pricy

    “Had dinner on Monday night, 15th June. This is a busy, stylish and very gay eatery right in the heart of gay Soho. A bit of an experience. The service and food was fast and reasonably good. The scallops, calamari were good. The "potstickers" starter (£7.50) turned out to the be 4 bits of gyoza! The balan burger was nice enough, but not particularly special. Left feeling we had a good time, but were definitely paying a bit of a "gay premium".“
