Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Balham


54 Northcote Rd, London SW11 1PA, UK – 020 7585 0654

Stars are for the customer service. Environment lovely. As a mother myself and a full time worker not a place to go for lunch if you want a bit of peace as it seems to be a mother and toddlers meeting point to be fair this sums up Northcote Road . Food was ok

Neither great nor bad. Just okay. The pancakes are good, but they'll dry up in your mouth with the paucity of syrup! The service is a bit hit and miss, and you have to make an effort to get the waiters' attention. By the time I was able to ask for more syrup for the last couple of pancakes, they'd gone cold. I'd suggest asking for extra syrup on the side when ordering...

The Dairy

15 The Pavement, London SW4 0HY, UK – 020 7622 4165

We went for the tasting menu which I would highly recommend -- for £48 you get delicious, creative food, all of which was delicious. We started with 'snacks' of salami, olives, and pickled fennel, followed by bread with smoked marrow butter and chicken liver mousse which was particularly tasty. Then came dishes of smoked eel, mackerel, and deer; we opted to have the cheese course, which involved home-made honey. There were then 2 (!) desserts: ice-cream sandwiched between two thin, sweet wafers, and a salted caramel and chocolate ice-cream dessert. Perfect for a special occasion, and the staff were very friendly, too.

With friends raving about this place, was keen to see what it is all about. They had previously tried a tasting menu but on our visit it was a fixed lunch menu. Nice bubbly staff, shabby chic surroundings (heavy, heavy crockery), good buzz. Food was good, but not uniformly great. Enjoyed it for sure but not sure I am going to rush back.

Kabul Darbar Restaurant

201 Upper Tooting Rd, London SW17 7TG, UK – 020 8682 3480

Could be better, I have had far better Afghani food, but the service was actually decent. A tad overpriced

I have been to so many so called Afghan cuisines but i have never tested food as KABUL DARBAR UPPER TOOTING ROAD one do. You might find portion a bit less compere to the other AFGHAN RESTAURANTS but its all about the quality of food. Great food Great taste Very well done
