A favorite, now even better. Chef Samir has renovated to add much more exotic eastern elegance to go with his excellent Egyptian cuisine. The staff is great. Chef often visits with the diners as well.

I can't say that I've ever had a such a delicious meal. The food was excellent and the very appealing to the eye as well. The ingredients were fresh and delicious. We had an excellent appetizer and some Lentil Soup. The appetizer was good and the soup was to die for. I will order it again. My daughter had the... More

Given that 88% of fellow reviewers found Chef Samir's food and service to be 4-5 stars I can only say that the two one-star reviews I saw here must have been at a bad time (and coincidentally at the same time ?) as we have never had bad service or bad food here. The only reason I give it four... More

I cannot say enough good things about this place. I've never had Egyptian food before and all I can say is WOW! I was so pleased with the food. I got the chicken and beef shawarma with rice. To die for! Chef Samir even comes out to talk to you. It's a small place and a little hard to find... More

This is my hands down favorite local restaurant for Mediterranean food. The food is great, with size able portions. The location is small but quantity with good decor. Chef Samir will often come out to talk to those dining and is a great guy For a while the wait staff was terrible but that is no longer the case....so if... More

The chef is a true perfectionist and it shows. Fantastic flavor, beautiful presentation, real fresh ingredients. This restaurant is not to be confused with quick middle eastern food counters, you need the time to sit down and enjoy it. I do not care for the location and believe it actually hurts this restaurant. It is located in between big box... More

I was part of a large dinner party of 20 people. Every meal that came out was fragrant and very well presented. I had lamb chops that were perfectly seasoned and cooked with salad and rice. My dinner was absolutely fantastic! I'm planning on having dinner there again with my family while we're in Greensboro.

The menu has a lot of options for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. We tried Falafel, spicy potato, fried calamari, mix grill and Egyptian Khushari. The best dish was the mix grill. The service was slow, but OK. The restaurant itself has a lot of pictures of Egyptian paintings, hieroglyphs, etc. which was good.

Great food; great service. The Kofta Kebab, Chicken Kebab and the Egyptian Yogurt were delicious. Very reasonably priced. If only they had Coke products instead of that other one! We'll be back.
