Great food, portions, well served and on reasonable prices. Balbaa became a tradition while visiting Alexandria as it serves the best variety of grilled meat & chicken dishes

No English menu nor English speaking staff but they helped us through ordering a really great meal. Huge place and we felt like we were the only foreigners at the time so it was an authentic experience. Really enjoyed it!

Food was very tasty but the cleanliness of the restaurant is not up to the standard. My wife found a snail inside the pigeon, I complained & they brought her another one & the wIter told me that they cook a huge amount of rice...More
