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

This place was highly recommended for me and it did meet my expectations. I ordered one plate of kofta and the quantity was huge for me to finish. The order comes with your choice of soup, salad, rice and one kind of cooked vegetables (okra stew or green beans stew or molokhya). All this plus water and tax, didn't cost... 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.
