Harden's survey result
“Unusual, imaginative and tasty Israeli cuisine” takes centre stage at this “lively modern Tel Aviv-style café” with cocktail bar, in a Southwark railway arch, from former Ottolenghi chef Eran Tibi.
A flavour of Tel Aviv café culture is to be found in a railway arch in Southwark – the first venture of Israeli-born chef Eran Tibi, formerly of Ottolenghi: “great sharing dishes that look as amazing as they taste”. Top Tip: “an astonishing cauliflower dish changed my perception of this vegetable”.
“A bright spark sorely needed in Southwark” – this “Tel Aviv inspired” newcomer from Israeli-born chef Eran Tibi (formerly of Ottolenghi et al) provides “imaginative Middle Eastern fusion” dishes “in an unusual setting under the Waterloo arches”. “It could be a tad less expensive”, though, “the music could be a bit less loud”, and service is “smiley” but not always on the case.
Bala Baya Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Best food I’ve had in a long time. Modern venue under the arches. Service quick but not always very friendly, and had to request bill three times."
"Nice hummus and breads! Menu & sizing a bit confusing. Tasty but overpriced. "
