“Balai” is derived from the Malay word “balay” which means house. This is what i felt when i dine in Balai Seafood Restaurant, and we indeed came back as if i was home. The food still great and the ambience so comfy with their friendly...staffs. They never failed to surprise us! Now that we are back in Manila! We surely will go back next time. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ for them.More

Worth to Spend! We heard this resto thru social media and recommended by a friend. As we walk along the seaside, there are lots of talkative marketers approached us but there was 1 who just said Balai seafoods po! I told him we are looking...for it. The place is really great even it was raining. The super delicious taste of each menu we ordered is on very high quality! The staff named Lyn and Angela who always there to makesure that everything is in order! Super super super thank you. You made our Vacation even more special and worth it!More

The place itself speak to its name, balai seafood restaurant offers mouth watering meals that gives you that tropical sensation. A must try dish here is their sweet and spicy crab, the secret sauce that they made will actually make you crave for more. They...also offer liquors that matched their appetizers with many option. I gotta say it, it is a must try restaurant, The bob marley themed restaurant will surely give you the chill amd relaxing vibes.More
