We ate the chicken kebab...maybe the best we've had in Egypt so far! Lots of tasty dishes too so we didn't leave hungry...and the price was right! Not hard to find at all...just look for the mosque off the main street and it's about a five minute walk on the left hand side.

I suppose it's my own fault for not eating meat....however, if you go for their vegetables and rice option you'll find it disappointingly bland I can't understand why it's not better - the equivalents at El Madena and Makka were fine.

We wanted a home made meal. This is as close as it gets. This is on our list every time we visit Aswan.

We ate here with our tour group and they were very accommodating and the food was delicious. My husband even tried their stuffed pigeon and liked it. I had Chicken kabab and it was lovely.

We were hesitant when entering this restaurant as it looks a bit simple. There is a TV running in the background and the environment is not really cosy. BUT when I passed by the 3 metres long BBQ (hidden behind a glass wall) and smelled the charcoal my heart and stomach opened up. Then came our waiter with a smile... More

A little hard to find. Service was better than I expected from internet reviews, and food was not exceptional. Portions were a good size. Delicious juices.

Yummy restaurant close to the waterfront. I had the kebab and kofta combo which came with rice and a vegetable stew. The vegetable stew was very yummy (and was maybe my favorite thing). Kofta was well spiced. The kebab was a bit dry but had a nice char. Pudding for dessert was delicious. Overall a really good experience.

Offers a variety of Egyptian food but the service and the portions change depending on who is serving. The food is usually tasty but grilled selections are the safest. Sometimes, the check is inaccurate.

The interior is very modest but clean. A tremendous amount of food for the price.I think a massive meal of mezze, soup,bread, rice, stuffed pigeon, vegetables, stewed potatoes. I think it all came in at about €4. The food was excellent. Not a complaint about any of it. The staff didn't interfere with a lot of banter, but were more... More

We found this restaurant in the lonely planet Egypt book and it would be a shame for people to miss out on it, because it isn't listed on tripadvisor.
