From its central location on Ritherdon Road, The Dynamo Balham makes sure that people in the vicinity are kept fed and watered from 7am until 11pm each and every day. Mornings look a little bit like hearty breakfasts and coffee that’s sure to wake you up, whereas the focus at lunchtime and in the evening is on woodfired, sourdough pizzas, small plates, healthy salads and craft beers. Advance booking is recommended to get a taste of that sweet, sweet pizza – so, don’t delay!

Great pizza and really good value on Mondays, when it's £6 for any pizza (although would've been nice to have been told that the mozzarella extra which is a recommended extra with one of the pizza in still an additional £2). Big pizzas, so great value for money, and the skin on fries with aioli were tasty. Nice big open restaurant, with space outside, and friendly service (service charge is included in the bill).
