Superb portions and good selection of soft drinks.

First point to mention is the size of the portions served at Balfour's - simply enormous! Two fish suppers virtually filled our small rucksack. Awesome. Second, the staff are soooo friendly, both to us as newcomers and to the regulars, all of whom they knew by name. The price could maybe be a pound cheaper but that's a small quibble.... More

This is a wee hidden gem not far from The Kelpies and Helix Park. It's a proper no-frills chip shop with all of the traditional treats on the menu, including their excellent Sweet-Chilli Haggis Supper. Everything is cooked fresh and the chips are the best ones I have tasted since the original Moscardinis closed. Very friendly staff, great banter and... More

Best fish and chips in the area and beyond - the children think so too. And the banter is great - such friendly folk in there. There's always a queue so the food is fried there and then.

Have visited balfours on a number of occasions and everytime the food has been great. You have to wait a small time to get your food but this is due to everything being cooked fresh, so not a bad point really. Would definitely recommend

Scouts were go-karting so used TripAdvisor recommendations to drive to Balfours for take-away. Almost didn't go in as it didn't look open, but glad I did. Lovely, very friendly servers and the fish and chips were very tasty. Would recommend.

We were out for a walk at the Kelpies and felt a bit peckish. Had seen the reviews for this chippy and decided to walk the extra 5 mins past the Falkirk Stadium and over the park to this chip shop. Really good fresh chip shop food, good size portions at a decent price. Staff had a bit banter as... More
