Welcome to the Balaka Bangladeshi Restaurant, St. Andrews!
We are a family run restaurant and we are proud to say that we have been serving high quality Bangladeshi/Indian cuisine to the people of this beautifully historic town for the last 29 years.
Our head chef has been with us for 26 of those years and we credit him for our success. We pride ourselves on using the finest ingredients, sourcing these locally whenever possible, in addition to the produce from our half acre organic herb garden located to the rear of our kitchen. Our garden is a wonderful asset as it provides us with a plentiful supply of coriander for most of the year. We also grow spinach, spring onions, potatoes, marrow, bay leaves and roses which adorn your table. The garden is 100% organic and only natural fertilisers are used. Having this type of fresh ingredient makes our food very special. Feel free to ask our staff for a tour of the garden when you visit, I’m sure you will love it as much as we do!
As well as the local people of St. Andrews, many famous faces have sampled our delights including Sean Connery, Hugh Grant, Samuel L. Jackson, Dougray Scott and Kyle MacLachlan as well as many top golfers. Padraig Harrington is also a very loyal customer. So add your name to our A-list and dine with us soon!
We look forward to welcoming you.
