A special attraction of the restaurant is the Naanery i.e. the bread bar offering a selection of artisanal breads baked in an unusual iron tandoor instead of the universally used clay tandoor.
The Restaurant’s wine cellar features a range of old and new world wines, that can be paired with the bread & chutney combination for an authentic Baluchi Rhapsody!

Must every body should visit you lovethe food ambiance .
Disappointing. Food less interesting than I’d hoped, and although the prices look good on the menu, the overall bill was higher than justified.
This restaurant served great food in a beautiful converted school. My only criticism was that the service could have been better. The restaurant wasn’t that busy so the staff could have been more attentive.
The food and the staff were excellent, and we will definitely be going back again. Our only minor quibble was the weird and loud background music; the staff were very helpful in finding us a table where it wasn’t quite as intrusive but were powerless to reduce the volume, and there were way too many loudspeakers. We fail to understand why music is necessary at all. We wanted to talk to each other, not listen to obscure jazz (although the actual genre was hard to pin down).
Not my first visit. Food wonderful. Waiter service still slow need to be more aware of the customers needs but I will be back.
Our favorite Indian restaurant and go-to place in all of London. Beautiful dining room, top quality service, and most importantly - the best food! Everything is delicious but my absolute favorites are the coconut-mango naan, palak paneer, and masala chai. They also have fantastic cocktails and a great wine selection. If you want the best Indian food and a lovely overall dining experience, this place is a must.
great food and excellent service, just the prawn was bland but overall it was good
loved our lunch. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Mushroom galauti kebab were outstanding.
Excellent food, but the drinks prices were beyond ridiculous. As was the addition of a 12.5% service charge.
Absolutely outstanding, this is my third visit to baluchi.
There were six in our party and we all felt the flavours and presentation of the food was perfect.
I was a bit annoyed that I had confirmed my reservation by open table text message then was called by the Resturant on the day to confirm. I told the lady that called me we were coming but she insisted she take my credit card details in case we cancelled. I was in the Theatre at the time, all very last minute for the Resturant to call and need my credit card I felt.
Service was generally good but we felt the waitresses lacked knowledge on the food.
The dining room was beautifully decorated and the ambiance was lovely. Overall we had a great evening.
It was our anniversary and it was really said was the worst experience in london. Being a Michelin Star restaurant there was no professionalism.
No body explained the food. We have ordered something and it was turn out to be very sweet, we have raised this with Waiter and he told us it is what it is.
Really bad experience. they need to raise there standard as In INDIA they have pretty high standards.
Loved it! Everyone should go. The hotel itself is beautiful. Such a wonderful experience!
Excellent restaurant, with friendly and polite staff. Great menu options, food cooked and seasoned perfectly.
Excellent food and stunning venue
We were pleased to have some authentic Indian food presented beautifully. The staff are very nice and helpful and we got great service overall. Will definitely go back for the gorgeous food - and try their cocktails - saffron martini is a star!
Food was good, but the accompanying wines were too expensive. Seventy pounds for 6 mini glasses of wine is overpriced. If something is done about this we'd recommend the restaurant.
We had lunch here on a quiet Saturday afternoon. The setting - it's part of LaLit Hotel, a converted school-house - is just gorgeous. The blue lighting in the upstairs area is lovely. The food is fabulous - we had venison (not an obvious Indian meat to choose), which was sublime. Excellent cocktails, too. Service was attentive, and the price was reasonable. Highly recommended.
This was our second visit to Baluchi. The butter chicken and subz biriani were the best we have ever had anywhere. The music was a teensy bit loud and very peculiar - we couldn't identify the genre at all - but the space and surroundings are amazing.
Excellent food and service but drinks are very expensive
Fantastic food, service, atmosphere and very friendly, helpful staff. We had a lovely afternoon and will definitely be returning. Thank you!
The service was the best I've experienced in any restaurant. Ever. And the food and ambience were perfect.
Baluchi restaurant is inside The LaLit Hotel, it has the most beautiful decor, both bar areas are spacious and comfortable.
The food is authentic and delicious. Service is outstanding. It is an experience you must not miss.
Delightful evening at Baluchi with superb food. Lovely service
Food never disappoints. Venue lacks ambiance but if you are looking forward a quiet place with great food, good service, you will not be disappointed.
Wonderful High Chai on New Year’s Day. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing and the masala chai was delicious. A brilliant touch was that the chef came out and greeted us and asked us how everything was. Very humble and sweet.
New Years Eve event: food was very nice, entertainment was amateurish, which in turn made the £125 pp overpriced
One of the most attractive and impressive eating venues in Londo. The food is modern top end Indian with some interesting twists like the truffle oil infused naan breads.
The staff were friendly and the wine was not overpriced.
What a lovely place , authentic food n wonderful staff...made us feel comfortable n at ease , we were with our 5 year old and the staff made sure that we didn’t ha e to tiptoe around other guest ..., it was our 10th anniversary and the staff brought a sweet dish to mark it , what a great touch :)would highly recommend the place
Great food which matched the stylish venue. Overly expensive given the amateurish service. Hopefully this will improve over time
My partner and I shared a wonderful Christmas day lunch here. The food was outstanding and we cannot wait to return.
The food was delicious. The service was very good. The ambience was lovely. The music was gentle and not too loud, meaning we could have a conversation. The decor is stunning.
Christmas Eve Dinner
Not a lot of people there but an outstanding evening in this restaurant !
Food is absolutely excellent (for people who likes it spicy !)
Good selection of wines
The main waiter was perfect but some were less skilled
The room is beautiful and well decorated.
The restaurant suffered from a severe lack of wine. No wine list was offered initially and that may have been because most of it was sold out. We eventually settled for whatever they had left. The same thing applied to the choice of beer.
Food was lovely but the staff seemed definitely B team.
the food was overall excellent, no complaints, but the service was very slow and the table maintenance was poor, also we had some of our party vegetarian and very little thought was given to when to bring food out, our vegetarian party was left to wait for quite a while until mains were served. given prices and previous experience, we expected more.
Food was very good but the speed of service needs to be addressed.
Lovely surroundings, fair but extremely slow service (40 minutes wait for first drinks which did not all arrive at the same time) The dishes were of mixed taste and quality one or two were very good while the rest was mediocre.
Lovely location by the Shard and the dining room was large and spacious allowing you to have a quiet chat without interruptions
The food was excellent when it came but everything took an age
We had to remind them about the second round of drinks and we were nearly finished the main course before they arrived
The waitress did say however that they were deducting the drinks from the bill as they gave the dessert menu which was a nice touch and redeemed the service element
£166 for three courses for two people plus one cocktail and one beer and two lassi drinks
My daughter's boyfriend is a vegan and the menu caters much better than most. My daughter and I tried the tandoori octopus and monk fish respectively, both of which were fantastic, whilst my daughter's boyfriend had the tandoori celeriac which he said was very good. We then had the lamb shank and chicken byryani, whilst my daughters's boyfriend had the grilled, spicy tofu, all of which were great. The venue is really nice and although a little quiet, it was a Monday night and refreshing to be able to hold a conversation. I would definitely go again.
Very good & value for money dinner. Place is good for group & family
