Dinner in Bala Cynwyd?

Hi Chowhounds!
I am going to be in Bala Cynwyd tomorrow night and wanted to know if you had any suggestions for a good but affordable place to eat dinner. I think Manayunk is not that far from Bala Cynwyd (am I right?), is there anywhere cool around there?

    Can't tell you much about bala Cynwyd restaurants but you are close to Manayunk. Here's a recent post with some of each:

      I live in Bala Cynwyd & occasionally head over to Manayunk but not that often because of the parking situation. Most recently we had a great meal at Chabba Thai (BYOB). As I recall the prices were fairly moderate.

      Slightly more affordable, a great Chinese restaurant, Chun Hing, is located in the Pathmark shopping center on Monument Rd just across City Ave in Philadelphia. Great family run place. Also is BYOB.

      Recently opened in Bala, there is an Indian BYOB called Saffron Kitchen. I have gotten takeout from there a couple times. Its pretty good, and gets crowded.

      These are just a few places I recommend.

        I don't know much in Bala, but I'll second the recommendation for Chabaa Thai in Manayunk. It's a great dinner.

        Penn Valley Pub is a local favorite.
