We've been there 5 times once a year and for the 5th year; it's still as good as the first time. Excellent food quality, excellent salad variety. The working staff very friendly and the prices are still convenient.

I'm surprised to see the negative reviews on TA. Went there on a Wednesday night for dinner and had no issues at all. Staff was attentive and courteous. Food was fresh, plentiful, and very tasty. Great variety of options from seafood to steak to chicken.

We told our driver we wanted seafood. He dropped us off at Balbaa. We weren't too sure at first. Went upstairs. Waiter pointed to corner area where there was a wide selection of fresh fish. We picked the shrimp, calamari, and salmon. It was delicious. What a fun time. Great authentic dinner!
