The food is good but not worth the price. Service was slow, couldn't answer questions about the menu and generally poor. This is obviously aiming to be a high end experience but it doesn't quite meet the standard of its competitors. My friend and I couldn't think of an occasion or group of people we think it would work for so won't be back. Nothing massively wron but nothing quite right either, we jumped ship and went elsewhere for dessert!
Beautiful dining room with high vaulted ceilings and stunning blue glass chandeliers.
A converted school so oozing traditional British charm - period features, dark wood panelling.
Attentive service and authentic Indian food.
Cocktails excellent too. Not the cheapest of Indian restaurants but you’re paying for high quality ingredients, authentic Indian food unlike most high street ‘Indian’ restaurants which serve food not resembling anything that Indian people actually eat at home, and luxurious surroundings.
Walking distance from London Bridge Station so easy to access too.
We had a lovely evening . The food and service were excellent. The surroundings are delightful. We were particularly impressed with the sympathetic way the building had been preserved. This was of special interest to us as my husband is a former pupil of Saint Olave's Grammar School. Well done !
I really want Baluchi to succeed as it is in our neighbourhood and located in a beautifully restored, Victorian school house but I'm afraid this restaurant will fail unless they change dramatically.
The staff are not well trained, the menu is too long and overly complicated which means that the staff don't know the menu, and the service is very slow. Also, the ambiance in the restaurant and the bar is wrong, the lights in the bar are too bright, the lights in the restaurant are a bit too dark and on a Saturday night there was an English string quartet playing; this is an Indian Hotel so give us Indian music please! I think that the manager of this restaurant should go to the German Gymnasium in Kings Cross to see how to create a cool, interesting atmosphere in a cavoneous, historic space. I hope that the management can turn this place around, but we won't return until we have read that significant changes have been made.
Lon arrival there is a nice cocktail bar to start the evening off. Moving to the restaurant you cannot fail to be impressed by the huge room it is on. Really lovely. We shared a Murg Malai to start. Lovely moist chicken. For mains we shared a Pork Belly Vindaloo & Lamb Shank. The pork was really poor. Not hot, thick sauce over a really fatty piece of meat. Poor. Lamb shank was pretty good. We were expecting a lot better, this was disappointing.
This is a beautiful venue-the service was overall very good-especially in the cocktail bar. The dining room is spacious and has a wonderful feel to it-unfortunately both my partner and I had upset stomachs after our dining experience-at the time we noticed our starters to be overly salty(MSG?)
It is a shame about the food as otherwise this place ticked all the boxes and is on my doorstep.
The hotel and restaurant were superb, it's a shame that is was empty
The food was great and the building was an old school superb grade 2 listed
Hopefully they they can promote LaLit correctly as they deserve the right publicity
I will be back nearer Christmas and probably book a couple of nights over Christmas
The venue was beautiful tables well spaced. Food was most enjoyable with waiters always willing to advise or cater for your individual needs re spice. One of only few fine dines in Southwark. Desserts were v tasty. It's pricey. But if you looking for the whole experience of fine dining with privacy and atmosphere this is your place
Baluchi has a very impressive setting, in the main hall of an old converted school, it's part of the new Lalit hotel, Bermondsey. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was a twist on the usual Indian fare and maybe trying too hard. The prices were a bit on the steep side but I suppose you are paying for the setting. All in all I'm glad we went for the experience but there are cheaper and better alternatives for a curry.
Papadoms were spicy and we didnt realise this when ordering- unusual dips too when we would have preferred more traditional papadoms and dips.
Main course was outstanding though- king prawn curry and lamb shank rogan josh.
Service was a bit hit and miss - they seemed to try very hard to be attentive but we had to wait a little while for our drinks and then to order our food, and water from the ice bucket was not topped up quickly when our glasses were empty so had to top up ourselves. These few little bits would have made things excellent.
This is of course just constructive criticism as the overall dinner and restaurant was excellent!
We booked lunch at Baluchi because of its location (by Tower Bridge) and because the restaurant is set in the main hall of a former school. The menu looked good despite pushing the School theme unnecessarily, though we were anxious about the prices.
The setting is stunning and the room/hall is organised so that it does not feel too big. There were few other diners and our group of six were able too talk easily. The service was attentive. The food itself was a mixture of 'Indian' and European and of good quality. The wine list is good but expensive. In fact our main criticism is the overall price: £15 for some shared Naan; £18.50 for an average Lamb Biriyani etc
We had an enjoyable lunch in excellent surroundings but resented what we had to pay for it! Maybe the quality and prices at our local take-away may have affected our judgement!
Not really set-up for business lunch. The staff are excellent, but the process is extremely slow. I suspect that they cater more for the hotel staff.
There were quite a few omissions in service that grated somewhat, having brought people there. The people serving us were very nice indeed, but they are let down significantly by the sloth in delivery and lack of attention to detail.
The food was acceptable at best. We won't go back.
Hi we were very happy with service but ever so disappointed with food far too expensive for the value . The food was hard and tasted stale and oily . Did not taste fresh. Lovely atmosphere and service but definitely wouldn't recommend the food to anyone . Not great especially after spending over £100 for afternoon tea!
Set in a large high-ceilinged room there is space for relaxed dining. The interesting menu of sophisticated Indian-style food offers a change from standard international hotel food. The staff on our visit there made sure we were looked after throughout our evening.
Fabulous surroundings, fantastic food. An absolute treat. The staff are very professional, extremely helpful, friendly and seem to enjoy their craft and so attentive to their customers. They know their dishes and give helpful recommendations if required. It is an expensive experience but as anticipated for a first class establishment. I look forward to a return visit .
Enjoyed the Indian Afternoon Tea at Baluchi's for mum's 80th. A lovely room, not busy and attentive, friendly service. Had requested veggie in advance and was a little disappointed that they simply provided more of the same rather than substitute the egg/meat items with different things. The food items were beautifully presented all at once, however that meant items either got cold or soggy by the time we ate them. These were replaced with fresh items on request.
After tea, I wanted to have a look around the hotel, and our waiter kindly arranged for a colleague to show us around, including visiting some of the rooms.
