The selection and presentation is wonderful. The shop is an experience in itself. Often 3 or 4 deep on the weekend and great slabs of middle eastern sweets laid out and a number of staff behind glass buzzing around to serve. The cakes are impeccable.

Balha's has great Middle Eastern pastries. Balha's have been around for about 10 years, which is quite a long time in the competitive Sydney Road retail strip. The pastries are delicious and not overly expensive..

My family and myself love going to Balha. Their Arabic sweets are the best- even tastier than in the Middle East. Their Arabic ice cream is so, my favourite flavours are mistika, almond and pistachio.

The baklava at this place is delicious and fresh. It is the best baklava I have ever tasted and the more you eat the more you want. Will definitely visit this place more often.

Best baklava, kadayif and other middle eastern sweets in Melbourne. Really fresh and crispy layers of baklava topped with nice pistachios... I visit here after visiting Tiba’s restaurant on Sydney road. Great coffee too! Highly recommended for desserts and sweets.
