I went to the one on South Kensington for breakfast, as I was going to the Saatchi gallery and, not familiar with the neighbourhood, read a lot of good reviews about it.
I guess it seems to be very ‘laid-back’ for the area, but still seems (to me) a little overdone. The food was good although not as wonderful as the reviews made out to be. I haven’t had the famous burger, but I saw it in the other tables... They do look good! 

And it is definitely cheaper than I’d expect for the area.

Balans outside of Westfield London is always a popular spot for after-work dinner and drinks. The girls are so so lovely - really attentive and friendly, and they can even memorise everyone's order and give you individual bills which is so handy when you go in groups. The Balan's burger and thick cut fries are a favourite. And it's great to go to a bar with great atmosphere without being deafened by the music. The velvet seated booth is our favourite spot :)
