Owner was very rude, bad tasting food. No menu visible price made up on spot. Small portions and unclean environment. Went into shop as very hungry. Food came as if reheated no taste.

Egyptian owner/cook was very rude. food was good. They did not accept credit cards. I wouldn't really go there again. Don't even have tissues to wipe hands. Try another place around there. Not worth going

temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
