Bala Cynwyd ( /ˈbælə ˈkɪnwʊd/ BAL-ə-KIN-wuud) is a community in Lower Merion Township which is located on the Main Line in southeastern Pennsylvania, bordering the western edge of Philadelphia at US Route 1 (City Avenue). It was originally two separate towns, Bala and Cynwyd, but is commonly treated as a single community. This came about when a single US Post Office served both towns (the "Bala Cynwyd" Branch) using ZIP code 19004. The community was long known as hyphenated Bala-Cynwyd. Bala and Cynwyd are currently served by separate stations on SEPTA's Cynwyd Line of Regional Rail.

The food is ok at best and way overpriced. That’s not the bad part.’it’s the rude wait staff and hostess staff. Just nasty from the get go and pushing us out of the door as quick as they can and it wasn’t even crowded. Murray’s is much better and better service!

My wife and another couple had dinner here this past weekend. Found it online while searching for something near the area we were visiting. Food was very good. Prices were a bit high for Italian food but the service was excellent. Great specials. Staff was very attentive. I would go back.

This place has calmed down slightly (only slightly) from the early days when long lines forced you to maneuver the mounds of Main-Liners. I confess that waiting in a yuppified, gentrified, line to eat in a place that has no liquor license, is not my cup of green tea.
Still, the food remains terrific. A little spicy for me and a little curried, but a cut above the usual Chinese and Asian fare out here. This is not to belittle the Asian cuisine out in the Wynnewood, Bryn Mawr, Ardmore, Haverford , Havertown area which is top-notch in many places.
The decor is...well...Chinese...clean...nothing special and not likely to win any interior design awards.
We took home a variety. Great dim sum dumplings, spareribs falling off the bone and wonderfully flavored, pork lo mein, rice etc. And they do have a way with vegetables. Pea pods, carrots, green beans... you name it.
Again, not very top of my list, but close to the top for my wife, Barbara...and that definitely counts for a lot.

Hidden gem in Narberth with excellent food, service and pricing. Not a disappointing dish. Seafood, fish, grilled and stewed meats all excellent. BYOB. Good variety of regular menu items plus several specials. Pleasant setting. On street parking can be scarce but always find something close by. Unrushed and well served meals. Very popular with locals.

Pica's pizza is unique and fantastic! Not especially thin and not brick oven, Pica's has a conveyor belt type oven that cranks out delicious pizza. The full menu offers many, many other options including many Italian specific dinners. There are specials on weekdays. We are BIG FANS of Pica's!

Not your average menu here, first of all a brick oven with grilled food and pizza coming out if the wood burning fire oven. Smokey flavors , with great ingredients make the food outstanding. Nice cocktail menu with really intelligent bar staff, and a good selection og beer

There for a business luncheon. What a great Italian restaurant. Everything from service to the magnificent food. The Spinach Ravioli was so fresh and delicious. Eggplant roll parm was made to perfection. Our guests has salmon salad and it looked fresh and delicious. Can't forget the cream of chicken soup. Would love to have taken some home!The Bruschetta served before hand was so fresh and tasty. Can't say enough about this wonderful little establishment. We were early for lunch and as the place started to get busy, they made a point of turning up the ceiling fan for comfort.

The newest edition to the ever changing landscape of eating venues on West Lancaster Avenue is Saffron Indian Kitchen across from Spread Eagle Village. It is the third in the Saffron franchise after Saffron Bala Cynwyd and Saffron Ambler.
We stopped by for lunch, eating from a menu of classical Indian dishes. Our Chicken Korma, Lamb Jalferazee, and VegetableTikka Masala were very tasty and well seasoned. We sat at comfortably spaced tables with cotton tablecloths and napkins. The staff were courteous, attentive and remained so when one at our table was inordinately delayed by traffic.
There is ample parking available, and when we saw a large Indian family, with children and good appetites, enjoy themselves at a table nearby we took this as an endorsement of Saffron’s kitchen.
Saffron is open for lunch and dinner (BYOB;) take-out is also available.

I went to this spot with a family member on a weekday morning, and the restaurant was busy, with lots of chatter and laughter in the background.
Once we were seated, it took us a few minutes to review the menu. We had to ask for straws for our waters, and our table settings only had knives and forks, so we had to ask for spoons for the hot coffee and tea that we ordered.
Once that was all squared away I ordered the Turkey bacon and homefries with onions, and my companion ordered the french toast with blueberries.
Our food was delicious and enjoyable, and we didn't wait too long. I loved the presentation and the servings were quite hearty.
This is a great place to sit, catch up and enjoy a good meal.
