Sure the food is delicious, but because we are not egyptian, we can't even get our right to laugh and talk. being scold few times, because we are laughing (we are 10 in number of course it will be loud). and the waiter did not serve us as they serve egyptian people around us. maybe because we are students, but...

This was my fifth visit to this restaurant. No difference it's the best. The best quality of grilled kebab and all types of food. The great variety of appetizers is still the same.

- Very comfortable. - It may not be the best food ever but I think it deserves to be the best restaurant for Grilled food at Alex. - Salads are much tasty.

Had a great experience here. The upstairs is for seafood and downstairs you can find meat. I chose the seafood. You walk in and select the seafood you would like to eat and it all appeared fresh. Many choices from prawns, fish, and other shelled items. You tell them how to cook it and wait. I had grilled fish and... More

If you are looking for signature seafood dishes, have an appetite and want a food that chuckles your taste-buds months even after then balbaa is the place. Slightly uppish for money, but comes with a great value. Seafood soup is must-have to begin with and then any thing is class of its own. Bon appetite!!!.
