As Balan's Soho is one of my regular 'go-to's when dining in London, I was pleasantly surprised to find one of their sister restaurants in the heart of Miami's Lincoln Road. Although the menu is far more Americanised, the food and service were still outstanding. The al fresco dining experience and ambiance tied in with great people watching reminded me... More

We booked ahead not knowing how busy it might be but there was plenty of space at 8pm. We had a nice table outside and were promptly looked after with water and then DRI is by our waiter. He was happy that we took a bit longer choosing our food as we had a quick card game with the kids... More

Breakfast wasn't bad but not great either. Service was average at best- at one point there seemed to be a disagreement going on between our server with another server.

Lisa was awesome. Loved this place. I had the tuna tartar. Yum. My son had the ribs and raved about them. Wife loved her meal. I also had the truffle fries. They were mouthwatering. Drinks were nice. Had the caipirinha and my wife had a glass of wine. Really impressed.
