This place has one of the best happy hours in Miami! The prices are great and it starts at 3pm every day! It has great menu and drink choices and has a great atmosphere. I've also been here for brunch, and it is amazing!

Upon returning to Balans on Miami's Upper East Side, things can really declined. The A/C vents inside were filthy with dust. In addition, the acting GM was doing John Travolta dance moves to the piped music, which was totally ridiculous. As to the grouper fingers...More

This restaurant has a varied food and drinks menu which is reasonably priced; it is a comfortable relaxed place to dine and has many tv screens if you wish to catch up on some ongoing sport, if you so wish.

Description
From its start in London, Balans Restaurants has offered comfort food from all over the world. Known for its modern menu, great cocktails and friendly atmosphere, Balans saw success during its expansion to seven locations in London. In 1997, proprietor and entrepreneur Prady Balan opened his first restaurant in the U.S. He chose Lincoln Road Mall in Miami Beach, one of America's most eclectic and international cities. Balan loved Miami so much he decided to expand further, opening restaurants in the Miami Modern District, Brickell, Downtown and Dadeland. All locations offer brunch, lunch and dinner menus featuring modern comfort food with international flair. Prady Balan, Proprietor Prady Balan (pronounced "Bay-lun"), originally from Calicut, India, moved to London at a young age for school and never left. His start in the restaurant industry had humble beginnings at McDonald's, where he first worked as a teenager. In his 10 years there, he worked his way up to senior management. Despite this success, he wanted a business of his own and started over. With a loan of £100,000, he opened a small cafe in the Soho district in 1993 and turned it into a successful diner that catered to the pre- and post-club crowd. It was also openly gay friendly, a unique distinction that set it apart in the '90s in London. After years of hard work and good food, Balan turned his first restaurant into a success and grew his empire to seven locations in London and five in Miami. The story doesn't end there... Miami now has a special place in Balan's heart and has become home base for Balans Restaurants and Prady Balan himself. In fact, Balan sold the London restaurants and now lives here full time to focus on expanding throughout South Florida and perhaps the U.S.
